    Netflix, utube, player.siriusxm.com all have horible audio

    Fresh install of Ubuntu 19.04. This is on an AMD 8 core Rizen 7 I think it is called with 32 gig ram. Anyway this fresh install fixed most of my issues. Before player.siriusxm.com wouldn't even make any sound, with 18.04 but now it works, kinda. Siriusxm plays alright but I will get 5-20 seconds of lagging. Just horible audio. Then it will play like normal for a while. Netflix I get the same lagging audio but it makes it unwatchable. Utube is just as bad. Now my pc is decently new so I don't think that is the problem. I can't be the only one with this problem but either my searches are not finding the fix, or I just suck at searches. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Ok searched some more and may have found a fix. Atleast made it better.

    Might take longer to see if this completely fixes the issue.

    Is it because I replied to my own post that no one else replied? Or is this forum just dead? Still having this issue. Thanks.

    Most likely it is because you need to bump your thread once every 12 to 24 hours to keep it in view of the volunteers here on the forum.

    While it's true that people might not have seen your thread (I hadn't before now) a big problem is that you haven't given any details of your hardware or configuration: there's nothing to go on for someone to help you with.

    There's a stickied Sound Troubleshooting thread that will show you how to provide detailed information, and there may also be something there that would help directly.

    I've not had any real trouble with audio on Ubuntu, but I use external devices that I knew would work in advance. Onboard sound can have all sorts of quirks.

    I will look into that. Thanks. I'm using an ASUS AMD ROG STRIX B350-F Gaming motherboard and yes using the onboard sound. It's late here to look for that thread, but will do. Don't know if that is the kind of info you were wanting.

    Well, that's enough to know that they've given the sound chip their own branding (SupremeFX in this case), which is often a sign that it's been monkeyed with as a "value add." Support for the underlying chip (S1220A) appears to have been added relatively recently, and there are quite a few reports of various sound problems being fixed by a BIOS update.

    Hopefully someone more versed in the quirks of onboard sound will be able to give you more concrete help once you post details of your configuration.

    Tried streaming on Cromium and there are no audio issues. So it is isolated to Firefox. Is it still my onboard sound?

    seems highly unlikely.
