Command-line VBAN (audio over UDP protocol) tools

This project an open-source implementation of VBAN protocol. VBAN is a simple audio over UDP protocol proposed by VB-Audio. It is composed of several command-line tools allowing to stream audio coming from audio backend interfaces to VBAN stream vban_emitter or play incoming VBAN stream to audio backend interfaces vban_receptor, or send text over the VBAN protocol vban_sendtext.

ALSA, Jack, and PulseAudio audio backends have been implemented. FIFO pipe output is also available, to allow chaining command-line tools, and a file output too for writing raw PCM data.
