PipeWire is a multimedia API that makes it easier to build distributed multimedia pipelines. It was originally built to provide shared access to cameras but it can also be used to build a variety of multimedia services such as a sound server.

PipeWire is built on top of a new low-level plugin API (SPA for Simple Plugin API) that is designed to be simple and suitable for hard real-time processing.

In this presentation I want to talk about the design ideas, the current status and the future plans for PipeWire. I will also give a small demo.
