LM 18.3 Sylvia xfce on a 2008 Dell inspiron 1525.
So here is the problem, I am attending an online class, the instructor is using Google Meets. The video is fine but the audio is garbled. Is there a linux program out there ic can install that will clean this up?

Hi chazb,

Is it garbled on your end, their end, or both?

My end.
Pulse Audio will clear up 85% of it, but it also cuts off the audio in Google Meet.

Ugh! This is starting to sound like another failed attempt to code for PulseAudio.

I assume this is a browser app? Which browser are you using (insert Firefox here I'm betting) and have you tried another browser?

Yes it is indeed a browser app. And yes I am using Firefox. Indecations are that all would go well, if I had Chrome. But uppon checking Chrome for linux mint at https://winaero.com/install-google-chro ... x-mint-18/. it is suggested that Cromium might be a better choice. When I had LM 17 I used Chromium, and it is ok I guess.

Well, as you've used it before, you could just apt install chromium-browser and be ready really quick to test it. No outside repo needed for Chromium on 18.x
