Summary0007700: LV2 Plugin Studiolink does not work
DescriptionWhen using the Studiolink LV2 plugin from in Ardour as a plugin i dont get a connection to any of the test accounts (i.e. "") if using from within ardour.

If using Studiolink-standalone it works (via pulseaudio).

It also works when using via "jalv
" which is a LV2 standalone host.
TagsNo tags attached.

A quick look at
It seems the plugin dynamically links against openSSL. Does it also and rely on system-wide certs?

PS. A quick-look at the binary confirms this. The plugin pollutes the global namespace with its own TLS and undefined X509:

 `nm -g ~/studio-link.lv2/`

It likely fails in Ardour because Ardour itself uses curl with openSSL and comes first (while jalv doesn't).

In short, please link your plugin statically. Plugins should be self-contained and not expose any symbols that may conflict or interfere with other plugins or the host. Many other plugins also use openSSL internally for license checks so this is crucial.

Check with `nm -g` and `objdump -T`

try CFLAGS="-fvisibility=hidden -fdata-sections -ffunction-sections" LDFLAGS="-fvisibility=hidden -fdata-sections -ffunction-sections -Wl,--gc-sections -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,--strip-all" for the plugin and all dependencies
