I suppose one of the more frustrating attributes of Windows Vista Beta 1 and the updated build 5219, is the lack of, or garbled audio everyone has been experiencing. We all know its a beta right? That's what all testers keep telling themselves..
Browsing the Vista newsgroups looking for other users experiences with audio in Vista I came across a video posted at Channel 9, "Learning about Audio in Windows Vista" and after watching it, I have a better understanding of why my card doesn't work (yet). There is a lot to look forward to in Beta 2!
The audio stack in Windows Vista has been completely rewritten so we can have cool things like per-app audio control. Anyway, Steve Ball talks to us about what the team has been working on and gives us some demos and introduces us to the team, including Larry.
