Ultra-wide monitor support – Screen resolution, Video and Audio Raspberry Pi 4 B

Ultra-wide monitor specs:
34 inch WHFD (2560 x 1080) IPS Display (21:9) – HD 10 AMD Free sync

OS:
Arch linux with Openbox (lightdm)

Issues:

  1. Managed to get 2560×1080 pixels with "hdmi_enable_4kp60=1" in /boot/config.txt but the default DPI is less meaning that text and icons are too small.
  2. When playing video in full screen mode with aspect ratio beyond 720p , it’s not smooth as if its skipping frames but still plays, but plays smoothly when played at 720p or below.
  3. No audio over HDMI, not sure what I am missing in config.txt

Required information given below, please ask any addition info needed.
Thank you in advance 🙂
