This should be resolved by enabling audio over network using Paprefs
This is what you need.
From the script of starting chromium-dockers
This will be cpu accelerated as there is no video hardware acc yet in rpi.
This have hww acc but only for x264 and x265 which was done recently.
Hard to say but try armbian while I don’t think they’re interested in getting widevine support with all these hacks that we do at Manjaro ARM project.
Btw the solution is available and used by many Manjaro ARM users idk why you’re not able to archieve the same results, maybe you’re not following the steps.
What I mean about “toggle the voice” is that the audio is too low for me. I wanted to watch it with full volume though.
I found the solution to it using @spikerguy post by enabling the audio over network using paprefs then reboot and I could see it in my Audio Volume Settings > Audio > Applications and there listed my chromium-docker and could toggle the volume to 150% max.
Where would you want to output your audio though? You got audio jack, HDMI, and bluetooth options. But then you can toggle them by clicking the Volume at your system tray.
If you want simultaneous audio output you could toggle it also in paprefs > Simultaneous Output and check the Add virtual output device for simultaneous output on all local sound cards
Well, the answer is right in front of you. You just have to follow the steps.
Gents, I am doing all that stuff you posting here and I think I am following your advises.
As I said before:
By saying this I mean:
When I play Youtube in chromium-docker, I can’t modify anything related to the audio. In another words, The youtube audio plays even I disable all devices in Audio Volume system tray. And for any enabled device, if I switch to it, the voice comes from the same source - from HDMI (so Analog Output).
What is interesting:
I do not see Chromium-docker in Audio tray / Devices.
If there is any way to diagnose remotely my issue, I would be very glad to do so.
Thank you @spikerguy and @Ace for so far support.
What’s the best way to use Widevine now ?
Is there an official ARM-64 Widevine support available now ?
Should we still use chromium-docker ?
If yes should we do other things after installation or is just a pure installation working now ?
Set host IP for Pulseaudio
/usr/local/bin/chromium-armhf: line 4: hostname: command not found
Enabling XHost Forwarding
non-network local connections being added to access control list
Searching for Docker image ...
Found and using
"docker run" requires at least 1 argument.
See 'docker run --help'.
Usage: docker run [OPTIONS] IMAGE [COMMAND] [ARG...]
Run a command in a new container.
Nothing is returned while the command executes successfully on running docker images -q hthiemann/chromium-armhf:latest
Running the following parts of this file made is possible to run chromium-armhf without sound:
echo "Building Docker Image - This will take sometime"
docker build -t hthiemann/chromium-armhf .
# Enabling xhost forwarding
echo "Enabling xhost forwarding"
docker volume create chromium_home
install -m 755 chromium-armhf /usr/local/bin
I now have 2 problems:
Mouse is too small when it enters the chromium-armhf's GUI window.
I doubt that it will not have widevine but yes it might not be able to play anything anymore as Amazon prime needs newer widevine version and I have not been able to find the right combination of User Agent, browser and widevine version yet.
I will try this tonight to see if it comes up or not.
