Hmm, I lied – I have lessons available and I can use these.
So it seems like the problem might be that on both systems I’m using HDMI audio, and the TV/monitors take a second to start receiving audio?
So in Firefox, the problem is actually worse – I can press play on しかたがない and it clips the し every single time. However, if I go back to Chrome and play a youtube video – with the volume at 1% – and press play in Firefox again, I get very clearly the FULL audio clip.
It seems like both of my audio setups are just lazy, and turning off when it’s fully mute – and missing the wakeup. I think Chrome might take a little longer to cease playing audio than Firefox does, so the channel stays open longer, which is why pressing play a second time in Chrome helps.
I guess that will teach me to dare to study WK without a constant stream of “lofi hip hop radio - beats to relax/study to”.
