[SOLVED]Video loses Audio when forward seek in Gnome{Music,Videos}

Hi,

hope all are safe and healthy!

I'm writing this post to get help on an issue with audio while playing any media in Arch linux.

my system is runing Arch Linux with Gnome 41.1 on wayland and Pipewire.

Issue is when i forward or rewind the video/audio using the slider there is no audio and audio plays if i forward seek for few more times.
Video plays fine when forward but issue is only the audio stops working.
first i observed this issue while playing Youtube/Vimeo videos.
to rule out network issue i tried playing offline media files but the issue was same with Gnome Music and Gnome Videos.
next i installed all codes required to play media files as suggested in arch WiKi and re booted the systems-still the issue was same.

now i suspected on Gnome native apps so installed Firefox and VLC player as expected the issue was not observed.
so i confirmed the issue is with Gnome apps-Web,Music and Videos.

i like to use Gnome native apps so had not installed apps from other projects.
recently i choose Pipewire during install instead of Pulseaudio does this have something to do with this issue as sound was working fine with pulse earlier.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks!

Workaround seems to be installing pulseaudio again.
