Hey! I also tried Chromium today (chromium-81.0.4044.129) since my=20
Firefox stopped working (we have meetings every day). And although the=20
sound is very choppy, almost everything seems to work. I could even see=20
a shared desktop for a while.
_However_, if I enable camera, my microphone seems to stop working. I=20
belive I had that issue in Firefox aswell, but then the microphone=20
started working after disabling camera. Today in chromium, it was
not functional after I disabled the camera.
So chromium without camera seems to work with choppy sound. Always=20
something =3D)
