Fuck chromium devs and their hate for linux. Piece of shit

https://bugs.chromium.org/p/...

TL;DR
Screen share with audio is broken under chromium, because some user didn't want the desktop audio appear when asking for input devices, when there's no microphone available.
The thread doesn't mention a specific cause for this besides "for some reason pulseaudio does this"

So what did the gigabrains working on chromium decide to do? Not list monitors (basically recording devices for on desktop audio) at all.

Why?
* UI is hard
* Because we say so
* Fuck standards

And they only do that on linux. Windows, which uses a similar concept works just fine. Mac? Yeah, just hacked it in. Linux? GL won't fix

Meanwhile they decide to add all shits of non standard, bug causing events for shits and giggles, but when you actually want to resolve issues you're met with silence and arrogance.

Once again, what a piece of shit. Chromium devs must love making things worse with every passing version

    I think they've abandoned it after chrome started smacking them. You can now get chrome on Linux.

    Check if Wayland or Pipewire are involved.

    @NoMad not likely since chromium is the base project at google that chrome is built on ;)

    They created chromium as an open source, then they add proprietary components and release that as Chrome.

    Edge is also built on top of chromium.

    But this means that any functionality that in chrome is coming from for example proprietary drivers or libraries will not exist in chromium.

    @jasongodev pipewire is the same as pulseaudio in that regard (monitor on audio output).

    I'm not sure what wayland has to to do with any of this as wayland is a display server/protocol

    @Awlex take for example Zoom. Zoom can't do screenshare on Wayland. Maybe there's similarity with the issues they are having with Wayland.

    Might be worth switching to another browser. I had similar reasons for switching to Brave initially but now I use qutebrowser and occasionally firefox

    I tried chromium for a couple of months but faced similar issues and not so quick resoution. Brave works well for me. i dont blame them because with browsers there are soo many issues they barely get time to cover them all

    Just use firefox? The only time I touch chromium (indirectly) is for webdriving
