pulseaudio / totem issue, giving me heart attack

hi
everytime totem starts to play a file, it reset the pulseaudio's volume level, thus boosting the volume up significantly.... I always got shocked by it...
Please take a look at this recorded screen:

Please advise..
thanks

You may want to try removing and reinstalling pulseaudio to see if that fixes anything.
or you can try this

beyond that, I wont know much on why it's resetting your volume controls.
So I hope that helps at least somewhat.

Looking at your video, the behaviour appears identical to my Gnome desktop when it plays any window and/or buttons sounds. I made a post several weeks ago:

Another person seems to be having similar problems. Maybe.

But, yeah, your video duplicates the behaviour I see, but with window and button sounds instead of Totem.

it's a fairly common bug (for some people the volume goes down, not up):

in the pulseaudio manager, I noticed there were two instances of the GNOME Volume Control under the "Clients" tab. So I killed one and now the volume doesn't reset (it was moving to almost-mute on the first track change, then completely mute on the second).

However now my volume-up/volume-down/mute buttons on my keyboard don't work.
