I am on Fedora 38 Cinnamon and I have microphone problems especially in videoconferencing. I think it’s a driver issue but i’m not sure.
Device-1: AMD Renoir Radeon High Definition Audio Supplier: Lenovo
driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel pcie: speed: 8 GT/s lanes: 16
bus-ID: 04:00.1 chip-ID: 1002:1637

Thank you very much
This implies that it works sometimes and not all the time. Which video conferencing tool? I suggest that if you have set a microphone in Zoom or Slack that you reset it to use System Default and change it in your desktop environment. Also, auto-volume settings in Zoom/Slack/etc. can do weird and unexpected things sometimes. In general, if you let the wireplumber system handle it, you’ll generally have a better result than using the 3rd party video conference tool.
You could try Pulse Audio Volume Control for checking built-in audio or any external devices like a headset. For more control, alsamixer may help you.
@vwbusguy : The video conferencing tools that I used are Zoom, Google meets and Jami with by default settings. I’ve also tried to modify the setting without results.
I think the problem is about driver. If you look in my 1st post the output of Device-2 seems to have no driver. Thank you for your help!
@hankuoffroad : I’ve also tried external devices such as micro-headset and alsamixer that doesn’t recognize the microphone that’s why I think it’s a driver issue as I said to Scott Williams. Thank you for your help!
