#StackBounty: #audio #volume-mixer #mpv How do I stop SMPlayer from using volume buttons?

Bounty: 50

My question is almost exactly the same as this one, except that I am asking in reference to using SMPlayer, not VLC.

When I press the volume buttons on my keyboard usually the system volume is changed, however when SMPlayer has focus the volume keypresses are sent to its own "volume" while the system volume is also being changed simultaneously.

There is a feature within the SMPlayer Audio settings to ‘use software volume control‘ which is supposed to disable this, however it seems that turning this on and off had no effect whatsoever.

The version I am using is 20.4.3 (revision 9306) (64 bit) on Windows 10 Pro
