Received kodi current flatpak and no more audio at all

I have received about 5 minutes ago the current build of kodi flatpak.
Apparently all it’s installed correctly but when i try to run i have no AUDIO at all.
When i try to start a reproduction it’s stop every about 30 seconds and all video it’s played whitout any audio.

How i can resolve ?

Read on another thread… open terminal and try to run this:

Pulseaudio user configuration it’s the issue ? I don’t have idea and because the previous build work whitout any issue ? This issue it’s appears whit this recent build.

Which distro are you trying to run this on? Does it already have pipewire?

Oh… i’m using Ubuntu 22.04.x (x because i don’t remember right now the exact version reach… lol but it’s the currect latest) LTS

lol, you would have been correct, if you said this two days ago :slight_smile:

24.04 is out :slight_smile:
but that probably won’t help either

So… the exact version of my Distro it’s “Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS”
For install 24.04 i need to reformat my pc… no good and i know some “app” i use it’s not fully compatible.
Anywhere apparently kodi 21.x use pipewire by default and pipewire it’s not available or fully supported on Ubuntu ? I Need to “force” to use ALSA audio.

That doesn’t sound correct, but you do you.

yes, it might be reverted, for now, just remove the file permission to the pipewire socket via flatseal

can you suggest the exact procedure ?

  1. Install flatseal Install Flatseal on Linux | Flathub

  2. Start it

  3. Search for kodi

  4. Find the setting saying xdg-run/pipewire-0:ro and remove it

  5. Restart kodi

On kUbuntu 22.04.4 LTS

Had no sound and video’s stoped playing after few seconds :thinking:
Did copy my old kodi dbase (kodi v. 20.x) from ~/.kodi to ~/.var/app/tv.kodi.Kodi/data.
(Only had to rescan sources for movies and TV shows)

I was kinda flabbergasted and almost went back to old PPA version

Removing xdg-run/pipewire-0:ro in flatseal fixed my missing sound.
Also added all file access for kodi in flatseal.

Now i have playing videos with soynd again. :heart:

ok boys… i have right now installed flatseal from flatpak… now try to remove xdg-run/pipewire and see the result.

in the meantime a few minutes ago I saw that there was a further update of kodi…that I just installed

if I really want to say it all. Inside Flatseal I scrolled through all the “Kodi” options and this “pipewire” option is not there at all.
It was perhaps removed in the latest update?
For example in same section it’s only available this:

yeah, I pushed an update to remove it for the time being

lol :slight_smile: Great. Thanks to maintain all this updated for all of us potential newbies…
