Download PulseAudio


Typically PulseAudio would be provided by your OS distribution. As PulseAudio forms part of what is typically preferred to as the plumbing layer of Linux userspace, it is a non-trivial job to integrate it fully to form a complete system. This is why we strongly encourage you to go via your distribution whenever possible.

Source Code

The current releases can always be found in our releases directory.

Development Sources

Current development sources of PulseAudio are managed with GIT hosted here on freedesktop.org. Browse the repository online or check out the code with:

git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio

Alternatively if you have trouble connecting (due to firewalls and such), try with the slower HTTP protocol:

git clone http://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/pulseaudio/pulseaudio.git

Read this explanation about the Git Branches and the release cycle.

Windows Binaries

Windows is also supported thanks to our awesome community. For more information, see Windows Support.
