    Disable auto-mute (snd_hda)

    Hello, I have kind of a unique problem. I setup the audio server to enable my headphone jack in the front to work as well as the rear jack (Line-out). This is on a dell mini desktop. Unfortunately, it seems that the driver is designed to auto-mute either output when one is in use (i.e. when the...

    No Sound In FreeBSD :(

    So the title is pretty self-explanatory. First, let me say this: FreeBSD DEFINITELY sees my Sound Card, but I'm unsure as to how to make it work. Here's the output of dmesg | grep pcm: pcm0: <Realtek ALC282 (Analog)> at nid 20 and 25 on hdaa0 pcm1: <Realtek ALC282 (Analog)> at nid 33 and 18...

    Getting audio/spotifyd to use the correct sound device /dev/dsp4.0?

The laptop is now recognised by the Spotify app on my Android phone as a Spotify Connect device. I can hand over the stream and spotifyd seems to work perfectly with it. My problem: spotifyd...

    OSS Sound Quality

    The default settings of oss are insane. These settings are for pure quality without cracking or any other kind of distortion and low-quality annoyance. This is an passthrough, bypassing some features you don't need. This gives you full quality without thinking about it anymore. sysctl.conf...

    Solved Get current playing sound streams

    I remember recently having used a command to get a list of all current playing streams, but I'm not able to remember what was that command. It dumps a list of current playing sound streams on channels (with process name, ex. firefox, mplayer). Any hint?

    Using sndio in place of pulseaudio

    Like me, you might be struggling a lot with sound, ever since pulseaudio came up. However, there actually is an alternative that sparked out of the OpenBSD community. It's a light weight and just works. Sadly it isn't what applications use per default, so one is currently forced to use ports...
