  • @jonas Thanks for: Removed use of deprecated gstreamer "low-percent" (Minimum buffer fill setting) and Added buffer low and high watermark settings to backend settings.
    But how do I know the best settings for my desktop? Is that the installation setting that comes with the hardware or is that an average? I am using Ubuntu Studio.

  • You should not change the watermark settings unless you have a problem.
    And if you have problems it is usually the buffer duration you should increase anyway.
    The low-watermark is the equivalent to low-percent except it's a double value instead of percent like before.
