Cannot get any media to play after updating

So after new update i cant get any media to play. i am getting these kind of errors in journalctl -b

pipewire[1245]: spa.alsa: 'hw:0,0': playback open failed: Device or resource busy
pipewire[1245]: mod.adapter: 0x55f905c4dac0: can't get format: Device or resource busy
pulseaudio[13302]: ALSA woke us up to write new data to the device, but there was actually nothing to write.
pulseaudio[13302]: Most likely this is a bug in the ALSA driver 'snd_usb_audio'. Please report this issue to the ALSA developers.
pulseaudio[13302]: We were woken up with POLLOUT set -- however a subsequent snd_pcm_avail() returned 0 or another value < min_avail.

erros from also

also this error (pic bellow):
itsucksass

i can only get it to work after restarting wireplubmer
also it sets my sound to 41% after some time and i cant play any media again.

also a weird thing that everything works file in mpv.

i would love if anyone could help me with this, because right now my laptop is just unusable.

You have to decide. either pulseaudio or piepewire
both will be nothing

okay. but it worked before, why doesnt it work now?
and how would i do that? just remove pulseaudio or pipewire?

The proper way to ‘switch’ to pipewire from a previously pulseaudio system would be

sudo pacman -Syu manjaro-pipewire

Doing the reverse requires an extra package or 2 be named.

Probably some quirk of the way you mashed the things together.
In example - installed parts of pipewire that overwrote parts of pulseaudio but its not All of pipewire, so pipewire itself wont work. But you wont have switched to using pipewire properly until a reboot as the pulseaudio services were still running while the previous session was live. etc.

okay, thank you. it worked

does that mean i could fix it without switching?
