Fixing No Audio on Kodi 21 Flatpak on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

April 17th, 2024

Somehow my new Flatpak Kodi 21 install stopped outputting any sound after an update.

As it seems the Flatpak update is now by default outputting only PipeWire sound, (or with higher priority than before) and that doesn’t work on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

To fix it, simply run Kodi with --audio-backend=pulseaudio:

 flatpak run tv.kodi.Kodi --audio-backend=pulseaudio

That’s all. Sound is working again on Ubuntu 22.04.

I guess this will be fixed on another Kodi Flatpak update.
