As of today, Debian testing has upgraded pulseaudio to version 2.
Jitsi doesnt seem to like it, the sound is distorted and there is a
pronounced echo to it.
Thank you for the feedback!
We'll try to look into the issue as soon as possible and in accord
with our priorities. In the meantime, patches fixing the problem will
be greatly appreciated.
I have a workaround. I edited the /etc/pulse/default.pa file and replaced
load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0
restarted pulseaudio and it works. BTW i later observed that skype too
had this issue along with vlc. Sflphone worked well though as did
audacious and mplayer.
So it might be related to some pulseaudio internals after all. Maybe its
some killer combination that has to do with my specific card's (Nvidia
MCP77/78 HDMI) drivers (intel-hda) and setup. Maybe others will test it
Additionally, if the pulseaudio server is shut down or restarted when
jitsi is running, the interface works until the audio tab is selected
(the sound isnt working). After that, the whole program freezes, i had
to kill the process with -9. Not nice if someone uses jitsi and for some
reason the pulseaudio server restarts.
Do you know whether the behavior is specific to version 2 or it is the
same with version 1? How do you go about shutting down or restarting
the PulseAudio server (if you know it off the top of your head)?
I think its the same. Having said this, almost all programs have roughly
the same behaviour except maybe the mixers (for example pavucontrol
tries to reconnect automatically).
I use pulseaudio -k or killall pulseaudio. Pulseaudio respawns but
audio-using programs that use pulseaudio directly pretty much hang until
killed or just lose audio and not "recover" it. It would be nice to
"proof" jitsi against this, maybe falling back to portaudio or trying to
