Package: chromium
Version: 63.0.3239.84-1
Followup-For: Bug #884887


this bugged me as well and I found the problem in the:


where audio_capture_enabled is set to false.

Setting it to true fixed it for me:

sudo sed 's/audio_capture_enabled": false/audio_capture_enabled": true/' /usr/share/chromium/master_preferences

@Michael: Can you give a reason for the default? Changelog is only
stating "Stricter default master preferences." Also, can you push the
latest changes to anonscm.debian.org? Thanks!

Cheers Jochen
