Audio during screen share

Is it possible to share audio on jami?

What do you mean by ‘share audio’?
talk : yes
send an audio file to someone : yes (like any other file)
create a server containing audio files and leave it open : not at all IMHO (Jami is serverless to begin with, which is an intentional feature so that nobody can ‘cut the server’ -this has consequences, one of them being that both you and your counterpart must be connected to the network at the same time)
Now, I heard there are many new and recent developments within Jami, allowing to create discussion groups, for instance.
This last feature I don’t master, and maybe one MAY use it to upload some audio file and then leave the group while (maybe?) the file stays here. But on this, I definitely don’t know.

I don’t know what @jay meant, but it is maybe to share the audio of the computer, for example share the audio of a video when you are sharing your screen.

If that’s the case, maybe using JACK as audio-server would be a good approach.
I’ve seen that Jami (in Arch) has JACK support (apparently, still very incomplete or buggy) but even without that you can use PulseAudio in “bridge-mode” over JACK and generate JACK I/O ports for PA that you can then connect as you wish. I’ve been using that setting for a couple of months now, maybe even a year, and works fine.
Just an idea.
