Empathy turns input/output volume to 100% at the beginning of a call
Submitted by Lyude Paul
So, it seems whenever I start a call successfully with empathy over VoIP, it automatically adjusts the volume on my system all the way to 100, regardless of what it was set to before. In addition, it also changes the volume of the microphone to 100%, which makes it pretty hard to do calls since my microphone is very difficult to understand at 100%.
This has been observed with empathy version 3.12.7, telepathy-rakia version 0.8.0, sofia-sip 1.12.11, and pulseaudio 5.0.
