upfront: this issue might instead affect gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio,
please see for yourself.
I am using Pulseaudio and their pavucontrol as my main mixer
application. I guess xfce4-mixer was not designed to fit pulseaudio
well, never mind.
But I do use the panel plugin for mains control and so does
xfce4-volumed which relys on the panel-mixer-plugin's choice to control
a channel. This works fine basicly. My trouble is, that I like to stream
audio to several bluetooth devices, which come and go throughout my
marry working day.
In the panel-plugin-properties I can only select a certain device and
only when it's available. As far as I understood pulseaudio, there is
something like a default-device/sink. When bluetooth devices are
available for audiostreaming they automatically become the default sink.
I would like the xfce4-mixer-panel-plugin to also be able to address
pulseaudio's (more or less virtual) default-device, so I can control the
volume of the device where default-streams go to, which should be the
interest of 95% of people using pulseaudio with bluetooth/usb sinks and
alike. (I'd estimate roughly 13 people ;) )
thumbs up for your great work!
