Description Tom 2008-11-15 19:27:09 UTC
Smplayer has a very useful option which, when volume normalisation is enabled, adjusts the playback volume just before actual playback is started.
It passes mplayer the '-volume' option.
Mplayer needs a patch for this to work.
As smplayer and mplayer itself are both in portage, I think that both programs capabilities should be 'synced', so it would be really useful to be able to integrate the patch when needed, via a USE-Flag. 

Reproducible: Always

The patch, startupvol.diff used to be availible in smplayer's svn repo at sourceforge, but I couldn't find it right now. But I'm sure you're aware of it anyway...

You should propose/push the patch upstream...
Comment 4 Ben de Groot (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-16 22:01:26 UTC
The patch is already applied upstream, although I don't remember which svn revision. But if you get current svn (for example with the live ebuild in berkano overlay), you can be sure that patch is included.
