When I change the volume inside a pulse-audio client like VLC , the output volume in the
pavucontrol->Output Device->Built-in Audio analog Stereo gets adjusted accordingly.So when I increase the volume inside VLC , the effect gets boosted and increases dramatically which is too loud even in 50% volume and vice versa.
Volume up and
Volume down system shortcuts increase the VLC volume beside increasing the system's. Looks like they're kind of locked to each other.
