Sound is stuttering while seeking or resuming paused video if sound is sent to pulseaudio over network
If you are filing this issue with a regular release please try master as it might already be fixed.
Version, Distribution, Desktop Environment: 0.3.28, Gentoo, Sway
Description of Problem: I found that if I'm using PipeWire to pass data to remote pulse server, sound is cracking when I'm seeking through audio, or when there is no sound playing and notification sounds. I found in previous tickets recommendation to set node.pause-on-idle to false, I set it via sink_properties=node.pause-on-idle=false, but according to pw-mon, link is still achieving "paused" state
How Reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
- Run pipewire 0.3.28 or later, with pipewire-pulseaudio
- Run pulseaudio on some server
- pactl load-module module-tunnel-sink sink_name=remote server=ip.add.re.ss sink=alsa_output.0.analog-stereo sink_properties=node.pause-on-idle=false
- Start video in Firefox, make sure that sound is coming to a remote, seek
Actual Results: Sound is cracking
Expected Results: Sound is not cracking
