Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 Iceweasel/31.6.0
Build ID: 20150331233809

Steps to reproduce:

My new laptop uses the digital audio autoput by default, but my speakers are connected by analog cable, so I had to tell ALSA to use the correct output channel:

wouter@gangtai:~$ cat .asoundrc 
pcm.!default {
	type hw
	card 1
}

ctl.!default {
	type hw
	card 1
}



Actual results:

Sound seems to be produced through card 0


Expected results:

sound should be produced through card 1 (as is done by all other ALSA-using applications)

Hi Wouter,

Are you still having the issue on latest Firefox versions? 
 - Firefox 43 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/)
 - Firefox 46 (https://nightly.mozilla.org/)

Closing this as incomplete due to inactivity and lack of response from the reporter. Feel free to reopen the bug if the issue still reproduces on a current build.

Sorry, I forgot about this a bit.

Yes, I'm still encountering this with ff 43.

Does PulseAudio work?

it works with pulseaudio, but that's not what this bug is about. PulseAudio, when I last checked, was not a hard requirement for sound on Linux. There is a reason for a .asoundrc, and by using the "default" alsa audio, things should "just work". For some reason, Firefox seems the only application which ignores that.
