Crackling sound in Zoom since 0.3.44
- PipeWire version (
pipewire --version): 0.3.44
- Distribution and distribution version (
/etc/os-release): Arch Linux
- Desktop Environment: GNOME 41.3
- Kernel version (
uname -r): 5.16.2-arch1-1
Description of Problem:
After upgrading from pipewire-pulse 0.3.43 to 0.3.44, there is a ton of crackling in Zoom. This is the only application I've found that has the problem, everything else seem fine.
As soon as the crackling sound starts, I see tons of OVERFLOW errors in journalctl. I've attached a 200 line example but it goes on until I close Zoom entirely.
Downgrading pipewire-pulse to 0.3.43 fixes the problem. It might worth noting also that with 0.3.43, I do see exactly 2 OVERFLOW errors, one for each channel but that's it.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Launch Zoom
- Go to Audio Settings
- Press "Test Speaker"
The test jingle is crackling / distorted
The test jingle is clear
