Chrome Remote Desktop - PipeWire

Has anyone been able to get audio working with Chrome Remote Desktop? On my other Arch install I would symlink the crd generated default.pa file, restart pulseaudio and it would work.

With PipeWire I have manually loaded the module, i.e. pactl load-module module-pipe-sink sink_name=chrome_remote_desktop_session file="/home/arch/.config/chrome-remote-desktop/pulseaudio#586293e168/fifo_output" rate=48000 channels=2 format=s16le

This creates the audio device successfully but when I play audio nothing is sent. Volume is at 100% on the remote and local ends.

I presume I am missing some additional step I need to do to make the pipewire-pulse functionality work?
