I use to modify from time to time the configuration of /etc/pulseaudio/client.conf for commmenting or not that option: default-server = 192.168.0.10
That server is another Ubuntu and is connected to a hi-fi sound system. Pulse audio is configured on it to receive streams.
Why do I use this? I know that we can use the sound applet to choose the output, including a remote pulse audio server, but it doesn't work well neither with flash or VLC (the sound is chopped). So the only reliable way is to configure the pulseaudio client to use directly the remote pulseaudio server without using my local pulseaudio as a proxy.
My question: after enabling or disabling the option default-server, the only way to make it applied I found is rebooting the computer ... I also tried:
- killing/starting the local pulseaudio with :
pulseaudio -k ; pulseaudio -D
- restarting the pulseaudio service :
- close the Unity session and reopen it
None of this is working except rebooting.
Is someone have an idea to apply it without rebooting?
