Yes, it is a real nuisance. I think that Ptlib does not have control
over the volume settings of the Windows Multimedia interface when
opening the device, but Ekiga just relies on it. Attached patch fixes
that. This does not yet allow Win32 Ekiga to restore output volume from
the last run. I work on that using an extra config key.
I've installed Ekiga 3.2.5 on Windows XP and as far as I see it works
fine, but... :-)
I used the call back service 530 ekiga net for my test.
When the incoming coming window pops up the volume for WAVE in the
audio mixer goes to maximum.
After clicking anwer ("abnehmen") the volume of WAVE goes to zero and I
Doing a 500 ekiga net echo test has the same effect: After the
connection is established the volume is zero.
This happens on a reals XP machine as well as in VirtualBox.
I know there is a small speaker button in ekiga where I can raise the
"wave" volume, too.
But the default seems to be zero, is only configurable during a call and
doesn't save the value between restarts.
The zero setting of the volume slider is a third different shortcoming.
