Bug#577077: liquidsoap: SDL output do not play the audio

This is not a bug since output.sdl is only intended to play video
(at least for now). If you also want to play audio, you should use
something like output.alsa(output.sdl(single(...))).
Oh. I must admit that is very unexpected, and I would suggest to
review this behavior with the principle of least surprise in mind. :)
Well, it might be surprising at first, but the general philosphy of
liquidsoap is that it should be modular: you might want to do some
specific things on the audio stream or on the audio stream so functions
handling audio and video are generally distinct. Moreover, liquidsoap is
server-oriented and the sdl output was just meant to be a quick way to
check what's going on...
Anyway, good to see a workaround. Now if only the video quality issue
could be solved, I could start to do what I want to do with
liquidsoap, which is to create a SOAP driven TV playout for web
Have you tried the svn version? We have done many improvements recently
on video and I've checked that your video plays well with this version.
