It is my log.

They all happens in Epiphany, their developer told me to report here.

Sometimes it doesn't play the video on YouTube, sometimes it plays but losing audio after I fast forward or skip to another time, the funny thing is that the sound comes back when I open the sound page of Gnome control center, but the sound disappears again if I close the Gnome control center.

On the Twitch side, it plays the audio without problem, but I can't see anything in the browser video player.

By the way, these are my webkitgtk and gstreamer versions.

webkit2gtk: 2.34.1-2
gstreamer: 1.18.5-1

Do you have pipewire installed and acting as pulseaudio replacement?

Yes, I do.

Perhaps a duplicate of bug 225857 then, which in the end likely is a pipewire bug (see last comment there).

That's another pipewire bug I think. Was able to reproduce it with a basic gst-launch playbin pipeline, so unlikely related to WebKit at all.

Nope, bug #233861 was introduced after 2.34 was branched.
