I have sound crackling when i run games from Steam (also with Proton) and play videos in Firefox or have a voice chat in Discord (microfon also affected by this issue) even notifications come with cracking.
It seems to some buffers are full or sampling frequency needs to be changed?
When i start any game i have no crackling, it start apearing after a few minutes.
Previously i try this guide ([HowTo] Troubleshoot crackling in PipeWire - Tutorials - Manjaro Linux Forum), but without succes.
