Using Mixer, I have set the volume of VLC Media player to be even with the master volume, also, this is even with other applications such as Firefox.

But when Firefox plays a sound, I can hear the sound of VLC Media is reduced, and the slider is animated downwards in the mixer (though a faded piece of the slider remains where I specifically set it).

enter image description here

I would just increase VLC volume to compensate, but then when the next track comes up, its too loud.

Can you tell by this screenshot what is going on? And how do I fix?

  • Phone call - I wonder if this has anything to do with Firefox Hello. I don't know for sure because I didn't have VLC for very long before my first Hello call. – 700 Software Apr 26 '15 at 0:10
  • Yes, sounds plausible (pun intended :). – Karan Apr 26 '15 at 0:11

Go to Control Panel / Sound / Communications tab and set it to Do nothing:
