#616 equalizer settings not enabled on startup

The version of smplayer I'm running is 0.8.6 revision 36533.

Under the Audio Menu, we have the option of Audio Equalizer, where we can set the equalizer the way we want. We also have the option to ask smplayer to set it as the default equalizer settings.

But after applying the settings, when I open another file, the equalizer settings are not applied.

Is the audio equalizer setting per file ????
When the button option "Use it as default" is present, it gives an impression as being a global setting.

Discussion

  • Apart from the per file settings that smplayer stores, it does have the smplayer.ini file, where, I believe, it stores the global defaults.

    Here's a snippet from by [defaults] section:

    [defaults]
    initial_sub_scale=5
    initial_sub_scale_ass=1
    initial_volume=40
    initial_contrast=0
    initial_brightness=0
    initial_hue=0
    initial_saturation=0
    initial_gamma=0
    initial_audio_equalizer=0, 0, -120, -120, -120, -120, -120, -120, -120, -120
    initial_zoom_factor=1
    initial_sub_pos=100
    initial_volnorm=false
    initial_postprocessing=true
    initial_deinterlace=0
    initial_audio_channels=2
    initial_stereo_mode=0
    initial_audio_track=1
    initial_subtitle_track=1

    With this setting mentioned, I expected smplayer to apply the defined audio equalizer settings for any files, by default.

    If this understanding is correct, this should be a valid bug in smplayer.

     
  • Okay!!! I think I have figured out the problem. smplayer had already created a per-file setting for many of the video files.

    For these video files, it was ignoring the global defaults setting. Once I cleared the per-file settings folder, it does inherit the global default.

    I'm not sure if this bug should be marked close. Perhaps there may be a better way to convey this information (or organize per-file settings). Maybe, when a global defaults setting is enabled, smplayer could prompt to ask if the user would like to override the per-file settings for the same.
