bug demonstration video
Every time I reload a page with HTML5 video, the sound volume is reset to 100%. See attached video.
It does happen for various HTML5 videos, not just YouTube ones (I tried one more site). Also it doesn't happen if I play the videos in Firefox.
Note: I was doing https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2013-03-21_Gnome_3.8 and I used the provided x86_64 Live image.
Dupe of #675217 I think
Hm, that report is from Ephy 3.4, but I (and apparently the reporter) are only hitting this with videos as of 3.7/3.8. So I suspect this is separate and probably related to WebKit 2. (But I don't know anything.)
I'm going to up the severity to major as this makes Epiphany unsuitable for watching any videos, which is a core requirement for a web browser. You have to very quickly move your mouse from starting the video to the system volume to prevent it from blaring for too long....
It is a duplicate.
