19:18:10@kythyria:berigora.netkythyriaDepends if chromium/your browser depends on pulse or alsa directly
19:18:20@kythyria:berigora.netkythyriaIf it requires pulse, then you need pulse.
19:35:01@spacebug:1bit.sespacebugDoesn't firefox have webrts support yet or have I done somthing with mine? https://test.webrtc.org/ comes up blank for me. Also in ephipany. Chromium works
19:43:01@lnxw37:matrix.orglnxw37 - Universally UniqueYes, Firefox has webrtc.
19:54:49@spacebug:1bit.sespacebugmust be something wierd with my firefox then. That page is blank

20:20:42@spacebug:1bit.sespacebugAh, I had disabled it in about:config 🙈

In reply to @Shadow53:matrix.org
Should work either way, I'd imagine. Pulseaudio is a layer on top of ALSA IIRC, so it should work with both
You'd think that, but Firefox actually won't be able to play audio nowadays if you don't have PulseAudio and use just Alsa

Seriously? That is annoying.

20:53:55@kythyria:berigora.netkythyriaBecause it's taking a dependency on Pulse rather than ALSA.
20:54:50@kythyria:berigora.netkythyriaOf course, depending on who you ask this is either reasonable, incompetent, or part of Red Hat's sinister conspiracy to take over linux.
20:55:54@kythyria:berigora.netkythyria Although I've mostly seen the last two suggested by people who think that absolutely everything PA does can be trivially done by ALSA's builtin functions.
20:56:25@kythyria:berigora.netkythyria But who are seldom able to articulate how.

You can patch back in ALSA support, it isn’t that hard for now.

Ironically, firefox still has a gtk2 dependency.

00:33:34@librebob:matrix.orglibrebobpulse audio is good
00:37:07@tleydxdy:mt.tlebear.wintleydxdy it's good on it's own, but not when it gets hardcoded everywhere
00:53:49@Zydokomuna:matrix.orgInny changed their profile picture.
