Description Kevin DeKorte 2009-04-04 09:23:16 EDT
Description of problem:
The new flat volume feature of pulse audio is frustrating to use. I liked the feature in F10 where I could have my music player set to a lower volume but leave my system alerts high. That way I could hear IM's or alerts even though the music was playing. With the new release I don't have the level of control I would like "within the applications" I realize that using pavucontrol is an option, but I won't want to have to be able to bring up a separate app just to adjust the volume of my music player

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pulseaudio-libs-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.i586
pulseaudio-module-x11-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.x86_64
pulseaudio-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.x86_64
pulseaudio-utils-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.x86_64
pulseaudio-libs-zeroconf-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.i586
pulseaudio-libs-devel-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.i586
pulseaudio-libs-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.x86_64
pulseaudio-module-gconf-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.x86_64
pulseaudio-libs-glib2-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.x86_64
pulseaudio-libs-glib2-0.9.15-8.test7.fc11.i586


How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start mplayer with -vo pulse and adjust the volume
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
System volume is adjusted

Expected results:
Used to be in F10 that just the apps volume went down, particularly useful if you happen to have a loud file.

You can still adjust the mplayer and event sound volume independantly. The flat voilume logic has nothing to do with this.
Comment 2 Kevin DeKorte 2009-04-05 09:55:49 EDT
I found the "flat-volumes" option in daemon.conf and setting that to 'no' made everything work as desired.

I think the problem with mplayer is that it is adjusting the wrong volume, Master vs some application level setting, but there does not seem to be a way to alter which volume to adjust.
