Description Kieran Clancy 2009-11-06 10:43:36 UTC
Description of problem:
Whenever I am playing music and quit without stopping the music first, there will be an audible jump in volume for a fraction of a second while the audio stops playing. This occurs with totem, mplayer, etc. I think it only happens when I set the player/stream volume to less than maximum. My hunch is that pulseaudio notices the application has closed, resets the main volume to whatever it was before that application had changed it, but doesn't think to attenuate or clear any audio currently in the buffer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set master volume really high
2. Start playing a music file, but set the volume really low in the client
3. Exit the client
Actual results:
Audio stops promptly with no volume spike.

Expected results:
Loud spike in volume. With some audio files this can give me quite a surprise.

I should also mention; this occurs when skipping a track in totem too, not just on exit. Possibly due to totem creating a new PA stream?
