The sound doesn't work. Either the video does not play or only the audio is heard.

I have been looking for solutions to see if I found the solution to the error, but I will not find it if I do not know the solution or where the error is.

Alsamixer tells me that I have piperwire, but I don’t know where the error is, since on youtube, on music platforms and also on streamlink twitch GUI or the video does not play or the image appears frozen but only the audio is heard, the latter in streamlink twitch GUI, which I use to watch live streams with MPV.

I know this is an audio error, because it happened to me before, but I don’t understand why this has happened. Could you help me with the audio failure?

Some common tasks if such happens:

  1. Check the mighty pavucontrol config tab:
    2022-10-11_20-01
    could be set of (Aus) …

  2. And check alsamixer (you do already but try give the real info with some logs or output):
    alsamixer and press F6 to select your device (could be a channel is muted):
    2022-10-11_20-02

  3. try removing user specific configs:

rm -R ~/.config/pulse ~/.local/state/{pipewire,wireplumber}

(will give an error if only one exists wireplumber or pipewire but ignore that)

and re-login or reboot the system completely…

  1. logs!
    Log logs where are the logs ? - YouTube

    inxi -Aa and boot journal would be a starting point.

  2. welcome at the purple side! :enos: :dizzy:

Good and thanks for your help.

  1. The first step passes this, 3 channels, the first 2 disconnected and the last one I deduce that working:

  1. In Alsamixer I have changed that I think it is my sound card that is in the default, but pressing F6 and reaching the 4 option I have reached the sound.But I haven’t seen a solution yet, I leave, but it goes by default.

  1. I have tried to remove the configurations of both Piperwire and Wireplumber, but does not find the directories.

Here I see both Pulseaudio and Piperwire active. Doesn’t that create conflict?

you do not have pipewire running at all as I can see the 2 possible state files are not present…

what says inxi -Aa ?

Latelest change to pipewire causing some issues ion some systems… caused by what they changed when adding pipewire-audio package

PD: It is that since updated (I think I remember was piperwire-audio) from there I stop working the audio.

looks exactly the same as what i see in other threads… where the recommendation was sto downgrade pipewire packages and remove pipewire-audio…

does:
journalctl -b -0 | grep pipewire
show anything error or failing?

As pulseaudio server should be not running…

Here is more than once I have had problems, and for not being sure whether or not I should take it better, I don’t touch anything, do I install it?

By the way, sorry for the delay, I don’t have much time.

so seems you do have PulseAudio installed i would proceed to replace it with pipewire-pulse to get pipwire take control what should solve your issue—

And no problem with the delay happy to keep you solving the issue anyway…
