If it would be accepted I would attempt to brush off my rusty c skills..
I'm just not sure how welcome this work would be in pa...

The "browser" classification as video was just a suggestion for such a
generic player, nothing else really fits IIMHO.., if the stream was
tagged with correct media.role, then pa would use that, the "video"
would be a fall back position. If you kept your browser with no media
role then nothing would happen as now.. which sucks when viewing a
youtube video and having to open the music player and stop it so you
can hear the video..
html5 tags like video/audio would really help here but thats probably
3 to 5 years away of having any significant role..
I just realized I missed one other use case... pa has no concept of
- With 2 streams of the same role (other then notification) are
active the stream that has the higher client in the window stack
should be the active stream, all other streams should be corked
