So after about an hour trying to find a solution for this problem, I've had no luck.
Audio playback in Google Chrome is way too fast/high pitched/choppy.
Steps I've taken to try and fix this:
Website used for the test between Firefox/Chrome: Google Music (music.google.com)
Tested other browsers (Firefox). Audio was fine.
Went to chrome://plugins. Disabled the Adobe Flash plugins one by one to test. I have the following plugins installed:
and the flash plugins:
Neither of those worked. Additionally, disabled the VLC plugin to test. That did not work.
Uninstalled/reinstalled alsa and pulseaudio. That did not work.
Changed sample rate in pulseaudio to 48000. That did not work.
I'm really at a loss for what the issue is. Like I said, the audio in firefox is fine.
