Package: mplayer
Version: 1.0~rc3+svn20090405-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

When using the PulseAudio output, mplayer sets the audio output to 100%.  For 
some sound cards this probably isn't a problem, but for my emu10k1-based (SB 
Live!) card, the PCM mixer's 0dB setting corresponds to 74%.  Mplayer makes 
this go to 100%, which gives me a 12dB gain and all kinds of clipping and noise 
because of it.  Totem, Rhythmbox, etc. all play nice with PulseAudio.  

There is a very simple patch available [1] that has not been accepted upstream 
yet, but I have no clue why it wouldn't be/isn't.
