Short description of error
Audio in Chrome, e.g. YouTube or Spotify, will crackle/glitch/click when Blender is open and set to output audio, even on an empty project with no plugins. Setting the audio device to Null in preferences fixes it immediately.
I think this is a buffering issue as it's the kind of noise I associate with buffer underruns.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).
- Open default startup
- Play music on YouTube or Spotify in Chrome browser
- By 30s or so, there will have been at least one audible crackle, perhaps half a dozen
- Changing from OpenAL to SDL will not fix it, but changing to Null will
