Either go full pipewire or go full pulseaudio. Having a mix of both is the reason why your youtube is not playing. Browsers depend on your audio server. :slightly_smiling_face:

In garuda-assistantaudio section make sure the following check boxes are ticked for using pipewire,

Pay attention that you do not tick any other check boxes of Audio section.

For using pulseaudio setup this will be the exact opposite of pipewire make sure you have,

  1. ALSA support
  2. JACK support
  3. PulseAudio support

ticked and the other two check boxes deselected.

Pipewire and pulseaudio cannot be kept together.
