I've had sound in all previous versions of Chromium. Pulseaudio works with all other applications that use sound. When I visit a page that provides sound, Chromium does not show up in the Playback tab of pavucontrol. Pulseaudio is version 13.0.

Any debugging hints will be gratefully received.

[SOLVED] Many thanks to jerb for pointing out the relevant bug report. What works for me is launching chromium with chromium-browser --no-sandbox. In portage, version 78.0.3904.87 works correctly while both versions 78.0.3904.97 and 79.0.3945.29 have the bug described in the bug report. [/SOLVED]

[UPDATE] Version 79.0.3945.36 (in portage) works correctly: no sound problems. [/UPDATE]

I'm having the same issue, also on pulseaudio 13.

Here's what comes up whenever I attempt playing a sound in Chromium:
Code:
Failed to create secure directory (/var/run/user/1000/pulse): Operation not permitted
ALSA lib /var/tmp/portage/media-libs/alsa-lib-1.1.9/work/alsa-lib-1.1.9/src/pcm/pcm_dmix.c:1108:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
[12326:12326:1108/170613.094478:ERROR:alsa_util.cc(204)] PcmOpen: default,No such file or directory
ALSA lib /var/tmp/portage/media-libs/alsa-lib-1.1.9/work/alsa-lib-1.1.9/src/pcm/pcm_dmix.c:1108:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
[12326:12326:1108/170613.094969:ERROR:alsa_util.cc(204)] PcmOpen: plug:default,No such file or directory


I'm currently emerging 78.0.3904.87 to see if it's an issue with Chromium 79 or if this is the result of the @world I ran overnight, but everything else still has sound properly.
