Discord crashes: Failed fetching module discord_krisp

Yesterday I ran full system upgrade (which did upgrade some stuff) then closed discord, suspended the machine and today Discord crashes when starting.

Crash output

Happens for both discord from manjaro repository and AUR’s preview discord discord-ptb.

Have found this thread on reddit, two months old but someone made comments yesterday too, with one user pointing to arch forum thread [SOLVED] Discord crashes inmediately after start / Applications & Desktop Environments / Arch Linux Forums
where it seems that downgrading opera-ffmpeg-codecs to 85.0.4183.102-1 does the trick.

I got the same HTTP Error: Status Code 403, I uninstalled current version from Manjaro repo, and installed Discord from Flathub (you may need to activate it in pamac settings). That did the trick for me. Your mileage may wary.

https:// bugs. archlinux. org/task/68364 (it won’t let me post a link) indicates that this was fixed with discord 0.0.12-2 so manjaro just needs to upgrade their package.
