I'm not sure if this happened with 5.55, but with 5.56, when I hit the volume up or down on my keyboard to turn the sound down for everything, it turns down winamp's volume bar too. Sometimes I can move winamp's volume bar up and down and it won't even be working. What causes this? It's pretty annoying for the music to turn down twice as fast or winamp's volume bar to not even work at all.


EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

I have Winamp 5.56 and a volume control on my keyboard (an IBM multimedia keyboard, 73P2620), but my system isn't working that way. The volume control on my keyboard controls the system-wide volume (the sound card) and the Winamp volume control controls only the volume of the Winamp application.

I've had the same thing for ages, when adjusting volume usingspecial keyboard keys it always changes both system volume and Winamp volume. And is has been in defferent versions of winamp too. I'm used to it, but now that you asked I think you can turn off volume control for winamp using keyboard solving half of the problem at least.

That's' the way mine used to do, Capn. I noticed just the other day my volume bar in winamp would always be turned down a bit and knew something was up.

I know what you're talking about nathan. I actually did that, but you're right, it fixes half the problem since the volume bar for winamp doesn't work at all, haha.

Oh well. I guess I'll just have to get used to it.
