This may come from a variety of problems. For me this was because I was using firejail (a sandboxing application) and pulseaudio, the default sound server in Fedora. Apparently Pulseaudio added something called 'srb channel' at some point, which does not play nice with certain configurations.

You can try to edit the file /etc/pulse/ as root (sudo gedit /etc/pulse/ in a terminal for example) and change the line load-module module-native-protocol-unix to load-module module-native-protocol-unix srbchannel=no. If this solves it good, if not I would revert the change (no point in disabling things for no good reason).
