Audio Management

You can manage multiple audio streams using various audio policies.

The policies control the following audio management features:

You configure audio policies in the audio policy configuration file, which you specify using policy_conf in the [AUDIOMGMT] section of the audio configuration file. Each audio management context has its own audio policy configuration file and associated mixer device.

If your application needs to monitor the system's audio management changes, you can use control events. For more information, see Control events in the “Audio Architecture” chapter of this guide.
