Pipewire does more then just audio, it can handle video stuff, and that is what its being used for in this case
Yes, I understand it's more than audio, and the video part is the one allowing screen/desktop sharing on wayland. That's why I'm wondering how to just use its video component but not its audio component, so I can keep using alsa, and still use pipewire without its audio component.

I do understand pipewire is required on wayland to be able to share the desktop. Is its audio component required as well for desktop sharing on wayland? I'm talking future wise, and mainly about some applications which allows audio and video conferencing as well as desktop sharing, like zoom, slack and perhaps webrtc. If its audio component is not required, is it possible at all to let pipewire without its audio components? Would it be enough to avoid installing its alsa and pulse plugins? Any additional configuration required?
