    Format of captured data from /dev/dsp?.?

    KDE Plasma: ☑ Raise maximum volume

    ☑ Raise maximum volume Before I make a bug report: does this feature work for anyone? I can drag to visually raise the volume above 100%: – however there's no audible increase, and when I cease dragging the slider, it bounces back to the left, to the 100% mark.

    Solved How to record desktop audio on OBS-Studio

    Okay, so I've been at this for a while now. For context: I used to use Arch linux and I recall having to do some loopback command to listen to the output of my default sound device, thereby capturing my desktop audio to stream with in OBS. Since then, I switched to FreeBSD but also streamed from...

    PulseAudio, upstream and down

    If I recall correctly: – this 2020 pull request (with patches from FreeBSD) was made, upstream, with the intention of FreeBSD subsequently benefiting from the merge. True? If so: are we (downstream) still awaiting the...

    Hi, I've switched over to FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE completely a few days ago. Everything runs great and I now have suspend working but with two issues: 1. If I suspend my PC with DSBmixer still running (I'm using Xfce 4), the init system endlessly waits for it to quit. I have to hold the power...

    Using Bluetooth audio devices (speaker, headphones, earbuds) with FreeBSD

    Here’s just a small recommendation if you want to connect Bluetooth audio devices to a FreeBSD machine, such as wireless speakers or headphones. Unfortunately, FreeBSD’s support for Bluetooth audio devices is rather weak. Some devices work via the virtual_oss port, but many don’t work. It also...
