I want to ask the "experts" on this mailing list a question I've had
for years. It involves "best practices" for the multiple volume
settings available on most computer systems ...
Say I am playing an audio stream from 'last.fm'.
The way I see it, there are *four* different possible volume settings:
"line" (e.g., PCM) volume, application (e.g., Rhythmbox, TVTime, ...)
volume, mixer "master" volume, and speaker volume.
I would guess that the last (speaker) volume should be set (dynamically
when needed) to whatever is currently most appropriate for the listener.
But what about the other three? Should they all be set at 50%?
If not, what other values should be used?
Can anyone give some guidelines?
