I’ve installed Fedora Desktop FC35 on VMWare Workstation 16 (on Win10). I’m having two issues:
- No audio
- Very slow video playback performance in YouTube
I checked that the sound device is enabled in VMWare and video RAM is set for 8GB. I checked that vmware workstation tools were installed in Fedora. I followed the steps to install ffmpeg-libs. Lspci detected the VMWare SVGA II adapter and Ensoniq ES1371/ES1373/CT2518 sound controller. I’m not seeing any errors in the system log related to video or sound devices.
I saw a post on /r/Fedora that pipewirer doesn’t work under VMWare and to revert to pulseaudio. I don’t know if that’s accurate, and am also not sure how to make this change.
Any pointers would be welcome.
