Hello everyone,
I require help with an issue while playing YouTube videos.
I'm running a Wayland session using Hyprland as my WM

On Brave Browser (binary from AUR), there's no audio playback

Additional information -
Using Pipewire + Wireplumber (along with it's other plugins)
All the configurations are at their default values, I've not made any changes

$ pacman -Qq | grep -iE 'pipe|wire|pulse|alsa'

alsa-lib
alsa-topology-conf
alsa-ucm-conf
alsa-utils
gst-plugin-pipewire
lib32-alsa-lib
lib32-libpipewire
lib32-pipewire
lib32-pipewire-jack
libpipeline
libpipewire
libpulse
libwireplumber
pipewire
pipewire-alsa

Note, I am testing this using a basic pair of earphones connected to my laptop's 3.5mm jack

mpv can play the video flawlessly, but Brave Browser cannot

Also, if I use the speaker-test utility and run

speaker-test -c 2

The test audio plays perfectly through both the left and right sides of the earphone

Additionally, all services for pipewire and wireplumber are running normally

$ systemctl --user list-units --no-pager | grep -iE 'wire|pulse|alsa|pipe'
pipewire-pulse.service                                                                                          loaded active running   PipeWire PulseAudio
  pipewire.service                                                                                                loaded active running   PipeWire Multimedia Service
  wireplumber.service                                                                                             loaded active running   Multimedia Service Session Manager
  pipewire-pulse.socket                                                                                           loaded active running   PipeWire PulseAudio
  pipewire.socket                                                                                                 loaded active running   PipeWire Multimedia System Socket

Lastly, all packages on my system are up-to-date

Re: [No Audio Playback] Brave Browser - YouTube

This probably won't help you but just in case.  Occasionally I have this problem come up with firefox and it's always because the app itself is muted.  I use kde and just use the audio icon in the system tray to unmute muted apps.

Nope mate,
Thank you for your suggestion, but I also checked this already. The browser itself is unmuted.

Can you give me any other suggestions/ideas?

Sorry.  I suspect pulseaudio is involved in this but you need somebody that knows more than me.
