Description Alex Merry 2012-05-02 07:03:01 UTC
org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player should get a Mute property (boolean, read/write).
Comment 1 Víctor Jáquez 2017-08-27 10:39:11 UTC
IMO, this bug is invalid since when volume property is set to 0, it means mute.

    <tp:simple-type name="Volume" type="d">
      <tp:docstring xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
        <p>Audio volume level</p>
          <li>0.0 means mute.</li>
          <li>1.0 is a sensible maximum volume level (ex: 0dB).</li>
          Note that the volume may be higher than 1.0, although generally
          clients should not attempt to set it above 1.0.
Comment 2 Alex Merry 2017-09-02 19:11:13 UTC
The problem is that setting the volume to zero forgets the previous volume. A separate mute property would allow the user to mute the audio, then unmute it again and have it go back to its previous level.
