Hello, Arun
     I followed the article and played a song successfully. But, I think 
something in that article should be modified.
     The problem is:
         [colin at jimmy build (master)]$ src/pulseaudio -n -F 
src/default.pa -p $(pwd)/src/.libs/ -vvvv
     When I did like this, error found:
         Failed to open module 

     Then I changed the parameter "-p $(pwd)/src/.libs/" to "-p 
$(pwd)/src/", It works.
         [colin at jimmy build (master)]$ src/pulseaudio -n -F 
src/default.pa -p $(pwd)/src/ -vvvv

     So, I just thought, maybe this command should be changed.

     Thanks very much for guiding me.

Best wishes,
