Media volume control

Hi sailors.

Am i wrong saying we just can’t control the volume for media before playing one ?

I don’t know for gallery video playing, or media player (and that’s not the problem here), but in case you’re using youtube on the web browser, you just can’t mute before it begin. Super practical for waking up your girlfriend at 2 a.m.

It’s a complete non-sense for me.
I just can’t figure out how it is possible to conceive of such a thing.

We should at least be able to change it in the sound settings. At least …


I totally agree, handling of media volume is pretty ridiculous…
Fortunately it can be fixed with some shell magic, but there really need to be settings options!
You can force the volume buttons to always control the media volume by running the following shell command:

dconf write /jolla/sound/force_mediavolume true

Thanks for the trick :slight_smile:
Have a nice day.
