I've found out that writing a stream to a .wav file works! Also when i send
the stream to another jack client.

Codecs i've tested are flac (works), ogg mp3 (does not work).
I've checked ext-cmd-mp3-output configuration - on command line it worked
after i'd deleted the -x option.
Why does lame need byte swapping from inside ecasound? My default-audio-format
= s16_le,2,44100,i

By the way i did all tests with this script:

-a:1,2 -i jack_auto,xine \
-a:1 -f:16,1,44100 -o /home/collia/Desktop/Aufnahme/01.mp3 \
-a:2 -f:16,1,44100 -o /home/collia/Desktop/Aufnahme/02.mp3 -chcopy:2,1

coding of only one file always works:
-a:1,2 -i jack_auto,xine \
-a:1 -f:16,1,44100 -o jack_auto,system:playback_1 \
-a:2 -f:16,1,44100 -o /home/collia/Desktop/Aufnahme/02.mp3 -chcopy:2,1

are there really issues with jack version / sound driver? Ardour or Jamin for
example work like they should...

Any ideas?
