Bug/Problem with "device busy"
I'm using strawberry with debian stable and an external USB audio device. So now when Firefox is running (no video turned on), I get this error message in strawberry:
../ext/alsa/gstalsasink.c(869): gst_alsasink_open (): /GstBin:audiobin/GstAlsaSink:pipeline-5-alsasink: Device 'hw:1,0' is busy
In the backend settings under "device" it is set to the usb audio device (not automatically select) and under "output" it is set to "Output to a sound card via ALSA" (in order to have the best possible audio quality)
So only if I close firefox, strawberry is working. but that is not a good solution...
Does anybody of you know a solution?
Ok, thank you jonaski for your reply on:
So pulse audio is blocking palyback. My solution:
I created two Desktop-Shortcuts with two scritps behind. Script one pulse-stop.sh:
#!/bin/bash systemctl --user mask pulseaudio.socket systemctl --user stop pulseaudio.service
#!/bin/bash systemctl --user unmask pulseaudio.socket systemctl --user start pulseaudio.service
So when I want to play audio in Strawberry, I click the stop-pulse-button and when I'm finished, I press the start-pulse-button. Not perfect but works
Thanks very much for the follow up.
Do you know if it's the same syntax for pipewire?
#!/bin/bash systemctl --user mask pipewire.socket systemctl --user stop pipewire.service
Hi, now I tried to activate Pulse and then choose "Output to a sound card via ALSA" in Strawberry and under "Device": "Automatically select" instead of the name of my sound card.
Now audio seems to work simultaniously in firefox and strawberry.
But pulse is active. Is that a problem for sound quality despite the fact that I have chosen "Output.... ALSA" in Strawberry?
