Mplayer keeps resetting volume to max
I recently upgraded to Fedora 12 (x86_64), using the KDE desktop, and mplayer installed from the repos provided by rpmfusion.org.
I've found that every time I start playing a video file in mplayer, no matter what I have the volume set at for the desktop (in KMix), mplayer resets it to maximum...blasting my ears each time. If I turn down the volume in mplayer, it goes back to max the next time anyway. I checked the config in /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf, and there doesn't seem to be any setting in there that would set a default volume level. I've also cleared the .mplayer folder in my home directory and that also has no effect.
It would be ideal if it just started with whatever volume I already had set for the master volume in KMix (as was the behaviour I've expected from other configurations I've used).
Does anyone have any suggestions?
