When playing music, the dynamic range for any kind of playback via VLC ranges from inaudible (at 3) to quiet (at 10). Both system and music playback volume adjust properly when called by “set volume,” but the system playback is much, much louder. Playback using the default sound backend (local) plays at an appropriate volume for the current setting. This on on current Picroft.
Is there a separate max volume for vlc or something that I am missing?
