On vmware try editing the virtual settings for the sound card and chaange it from autodetect to default sound card in the drop down box. That may work for you. :man_shrugging:


i have done that but still no luck :frowning:

I have the same issue with vmware on my MacBook pro. Endeavour got 4GB of RAM and 71GB of Storage and everything but the sound works so far.

With another Linux Distro where i discovered the same issues, changing the input and output under “Soundcard” worked just fin - but not with Endeavour.

Could there be any codecs missing? I already installed “the good, the bad, the ugly”…

My EOS installation in vmware is working fine with regard to audio and youtube video. And I have not changed any vmware settings other than RAM (16 GB) and number of CPU (12). Audio is still set to “auto”.

You have the vmware tools installed and, for example, vmware auto-resolution is working?

I have no issues with vmware either with audio and youtube. Using pipewire.

I had the same problem. I installed pulseaudio uninstalling pipewire-pulse. Now it worked fine

I was having the same issue, Couldn’t for the life of me find out what was acting weird. Tried this, and everything is better. Good audio, and no stuttering. Thank You.

I found a solution yesterday. I had to switch to PulseAudio from Pipewire or ALSA, that workes just fine.

So try just to install PulseAudio and reboot, maybe it works.
