Browser multimedia doesn't seem to be working


No videos are loading, just endlessly buffering. Audio only, like soundcloud is behaving similarly. Also, my system doesn’t pick up my built-in mic, nor a wired one.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance!

Looks likes drivers issues, just search drivers for Your GPU and Audio card manually.

Some information about your system would be helpful. Please read and post inxi output:

Maybe try the solution (post #2) listed here:

Also, 5.14 kernel is EOL and it is a good idea to have a swap file or swap partition.
