Description Baptiste Daroussin 2020-10-15 15:01:58 UTC
Would it be possible to turn sndio to on by default in chromium, this is the only to have proper audio in visio conferences (default alsa has crackling audio when there are multiple persons in visio) tested with google meet, microsoft teams and Jitsi meet.

How well chromium works when sndiod is NOT running? See bug 218188. For comparison, pulseaudio doesn't support serverless mode, so the daemon is started on demand by libpulse. From Makefile: # With SNDIO=on we exclude audio_manager_linux from the build (see # media/audio/BUILD.gn) and use audio_manager_openbsd which does not # support falling back to ALSA or PulseAudio.

I have used Chromium with only SNDIO on for a few months. As jbeich points out we currently have SNDIO_PREVENTS=ALSA PULSEAUDIO, so there will probably be some disruption, but based on my experience as a user, +1 for this change.
