My Edge Chromium is not playing sound.
I managed to fix Chrome using this flag: --try-supported-channel-layouts
But Edge does not have that flag.
Is there a way to make Edge to support that?

At home I have a SoundBlaster Live 5.1 and my PC is set to use 5.1 surround sound.
When I get home I'll send some screenshots.
But Edge is the only thing that doesn't play sound in my PC.
Stable channel will be released in July 15 2020, for now only stick to the official versions

So only Edge browsers (all channels) have problem, no other program.
I wonder if it has something to do with audio channels, try using Stereo instead of 5.1 and 7.1 see if you can get any audio out of Edge.
there are also a few flags in Edge (i'm using Canary now) that you can try turning off and on
they're worth a shot

Thanks, but I've already tested every "audio", "sound" flag...
The only one that used to work is this one: "--try-supported-channel-layouts"
And I really don't intend to change my computer config because one software doesn't have sound. I play a lot of games that are already configured to work correctly.
The best thing I think will be to use another browser until Chromium fix that...
Oh, and I forgot to say it correctly. The problem is with sound on my headphones. Speakers works just fine.

Exactly, like the last comment user said on Fri, Jan 18, 2019:
"This problem still exists, and these flags don't seem to work anymore.
Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit) Windows 10, Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI Express 7.1 Sound Card."
The only way for surround sound to work is using that flag that appears to be deprecated and I don't know why.
That's the reason why I came here to report it.

This may not be related but there was also a flag at one time that allowed me to cause 5.1 sound to be passed to my receiver.
Below is an old post from when this flag disappeared. Legacy edge is still able to pass through 5.1 sound, but the current Chromium Edge builds no longer seem to have this override available or the passthrough built in.
I'm happy to have any pointers if I have missed how to achieve this in the current builds.

So they never answered you, right?
Why that flag was removed when there is no option to allow surround instead of stereo?
Does your browser has sound in the current builds?

I finally managed to get back old Edge Legacy to get surround working.
It was for me a bit tricky. Ive been reading hundreds of threads and tips. But this finally was the right way to go, at least this date today.
Here are my thoughts
You have a soundcard with probably realtek chipset and if 5.1 aint working in games etc it could be intresting to try out Alan finote software
