Basically, instead of reading from a file, libsndfile can be passed a set of
functions to read data from an arbitrary source.

So for example, if you write a set of functions which will read a sound file
from a memory block or a network location, you can pass them to libsndfile,
and it will use them to load the data from memory or over the network, even
if it doesn't actually exist as a file.

This is the "virtual IO functionality".  He has simply released a
description of this API so that it is easy to understand and use. You can
view it on the website here: http://www.mega-nerd.com/libsndfile/api.html
