[vlc-devel] [PATCH]Remove automatic handling of volume and mute keys in QT4

With late VLC versions (using QT4 interface) the mute and volume keyboard
keys are processed twice. Once by VLC which then sends same command forward.
So pressing volume up key once while VLC is active will increase both VLC
and Windows mixer volume levels.

Correct thing would be allow user to choose what they want, but since
someone in forums provided patch for this, I think it is just easier to
return old behavior back. (and yes, people have complained about this)

Again, I did not test this, but I am guessing it works OK. Patch credits go
to DataGhost.
