Description of problem:
Occasionally, when switching to a new song (either ogg or mp3) in the
playlist, xmms will use its maximum value. The volume slider does not
move to the end, the music volume simply increases. The slider can be
moved freely, but this has no effect.
If you then stop and restart the track (click stop, then click play)
the volume behaves correctly -- it is set to whereever you have the
slider. Pushing pause and play does not fix the problem.
This only occurs at the beginning of a track. I've never seen it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load many tracks in playlist
2. set xmms volume low
3. begin playing tracks
Actual Results: eventually, one of the tracks will be played very
loudly. At this point, moving the slider has no effect.
Expected Results: well, the slider should always work :)
Can you narrow this down to particular songs?
Also, have you tried FC2?
I was never able to pin it down. There were no songs that would
exhibit this behavior every time, and it's clearly impossible to show
that a song NEVER does it.
However, at some point, something changed and the problem went away.
I think it was probably an xmms update, so you can probably close this
bug. I have used xmms a little on FC2 and haven't seen this behavior
