Error opening PCM device for ALSA

Hi there guys,
I started using the awesome library in my opengl c++ project under linux.
Everything works fine, but it seems like the access to the audio device (I'm binding the device with ESOD_AUTO_DETECT) is exclusive, meaning I can't play music from irrklang and from another source (chrome for example) at the same time. My main concern is that I can't even record my screen with the music coming from irrklang, as obs will try to access a locked device.

The error I get when trying to start irrklang while another source is playing is the following:

irrKlang sound library version 1.6.0
Error opening PCM device for ALSA

I tried both with pipewire and without, it didn't solve for me. What could I do?

That's strange, what OS are you running exactly?
