PipeWire is a low-level multimedia library and daemon that facilitates
negotiation and low-latency transport of multimedia content
between applications, filters and devices. It is built using
modern Linux infrastructure and has both performance and security
as its core design guidelines.
The goal is to provide services such as JACK and PulseAudio on top
of this common infrastructure. PipeWire is media agnostic and supports
arbitrary compressed and uncompressed formats.
A common audio infrastructure with backwards compatibility that can
support Pro Audio and Desktop Audio use cases can potentially
unify the currently fractured audio landscape on Linux desktops
and workstations and give users and developers a much better audio
experience.
