    Solved How to record desktop audio on OBS-Studio

    Okay, so I've been at this for a while now.

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...

    No Sound when resuming from suspend & DSBMixer causes init to wait

    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...
