Strange bug in Firefox with PulseAudio and Soundcloud

Postby Newk » Tue Jan 16, 2018 8:06 pm

when i try to play a track on Soundcloud it just wont start.
All other players or streaming sites work fine.
(using Kxstudio with the PA to Jack bridge)

when i start Firefox from terminal and press play in Soundcloud i see this error:

Code: Select all

[/home/newk/.pulse/client.conf:2] Unknown lvalue 'enable-remixing' in section 'n/a'.

that file is not present.. config is elsewhere
it ONLY effects soundcloud
weird huh?!

edit:
config file is present:

Code: Select all

autospawn = no
enable-remixing = no
enable-lfe-remixing = no

but changing them to "yes" still gave that error with no change for soundcloud, not being able to play anything :cry:
"section n/a" ?

Can you comment out / remove the two options ('enable-remixing' and 'enable-lfe-remixing') from your config file?

Also, on my machine (Ubuntu Xenial) the user-specific config files for the pulseaudio daemon would be located in

Code: Select all

~/.config/pulse/daemon.conf
or

Code: Select all

~/.config/pulse/daemon.conf.d/*.conf
.
Ubuntu, Mixbus32C; acoustic blues / country / jazz

which version of Pulseaudio are you using?

Code: Select all

pulseaudio --version

will confirm if can't see it elsewhere

you appear to have old version of Pulseaudio looking for configuration in ~/.pulse folder
recent pulseaudio versions now use ~/.config/pulse folder instead (@tseaver is using this folder)

Does pavucontrol Playback tab show Soundcloud playing audio even if it cannot be heard?
Is Soundcloud playback stream showing connected to Pulseaudio JACK Sink for playback?

Hi,

See the last post in this thread here, this is what I've seen happen in recent versions of FF:
