Am I missing something? I want to see if with this library the audio of retro games on Firefox is played correctly since it's fragmented.

I cannot find this package. I can find a pulseaudio-esound-compat that was present in Bionic...

Might this be an X-Y problem? What is the original issue that you are trying to solve?

Fragmented audio playing retro games on Firefox. Just to test if my laptop can run them properly, then I'll also consider installing a retro games emulator for more frequent play, probably RetroArch. I'm mostly interested to Ace Combat series so I noticed this issue trying both Ace Combat and Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere but any other has the same problem.

Are these originally flash games?

No, absolutely, I have 2 Flash players for them, an .exe and a flat, I already know how to play them correctly. As I said, it's Ace Combat series so specifically PlayStation consoles. I'd like to make audio being played correctly on Firefox and then I'll consider installing an emulator, but I think that the emulator can anyway play audio correctly since it's supposed to run retro games perfectly and brings his own libraries. Do you think that I can just forget about trying to play audio correctly on Firefox and install directly an emulator? Assuming that I have games ROMs of course.

If it was me, I would. I use a PS emulator and never needed to mess with sound at all...

But then... That doesn't count for much...
