Using client volume control, I can control Guest sound volume, but I'm not able to control guest volume using guest volume controller in some envs:
Unable to control sound volume inside the guest
- Client Win7, vier-viewer 0.5.6-25(rhev current) / Guest Win7, RHEV-Spice-Agent 4.11.2
- Client Win7, vier-viewer 1.0256(newest available msi) / Guest Win7, RHEV-Spice-Agent 4.11.2
But using client on Fedora20 or using a RHEL7 Guest, I can control guest sound volume inside the guest:
- Client Win7, vier-viewer 0.5.6-25 / Guest RHEL7
- Client Fedora20, virt-viewer-0.6.0-1.fc20.x86_64 / Guest Win7, RHEV-Spice-Agent 4.11.2
The problems stems from the audio sink/src not implementing the GstStreamVolume interface.
In >1.0, directsoundsink implements it, however directsoundsrc is still missing volume control.
Perhaps we should first rebase gstreamer to 1.x series, and fix directsoundsrc upstream.
this all sounds too late for 3.5
Just an update: Last upstream release of virt-viewer is using gstreamer1 and you can control guest playback audio inside the guest;
For the record audio (directsoundsrc), there is a patch upstream at:
The patch for directsoundsrc element is now upstream.
Closing this bug as NEXTRELEASE as this patch should be available in next virt-viewer windows release.
If you find any problems related to volume control, please open a new bug for it.
Closing as NEXTRELEASE is not right. Sorry. Moving it to POST.
The bz for directsoundsrc fix is
The patch is upstream on gst-plugins-bad hash
It should be included in version 1.4.6
