When recording anything with my laptop’s internal microphone, only static is recorded. After the microphone is used, playing any sound becoming stuttery and alternates between working and silent quickly, which persists until I restart wireplumber.
If the internal mic is being used and active while the internal speakers are in use the system is likely picking up and cancelling feedback from the speakers. Thus the background noise cancellation may be causing the stuttering.
Have you tried playing audio with the mic disabled (muted)?
To be clear, the stuttering isn’t while I record audio, it’s after. As in, if I try to record something, then it will start to stutter even after I stop recording, until I systemctl --user restart wireplumber
If I haven’t tried to record audio since last restarting pipewire, it doesn’t stutter.
