[Issue] Strange popping sounds?

  • Every now and again while I'm watching a video (Mostly from YouTube) I seem to get this loud pop go through my headphones. Doesn't happen when I am just browsing and hasn't happened in any other situation (Different browsers, Downloaded music etc.) Just wondering if there could be any reason as to why its happening.

    Thanks 🙂

  • @ufinexa you added a site or chat blog on your side panel? I'm facing a odd sound when i open my browser, but i added a live tv page and i think that could be from this page because he have a chat pop-up.

  • Nope, With YouTube I don't have any live chat panel. I know what you mean about chatango and the pops it makes for new messages but I don't watch live TV on Vivaldi. It's more like a popping that sounds like a software issue. A hard aggressive pop like when you plug some speakers in but at regular intervals while I am watching YouTube so i have no clue.

    Issue may happen if audio channels are switched, could be a bug in Vivaldi while detecting audio stream, a driver issue or a bug in internal Chromium based code.
