Bug Description

Allthough th gnome sound-applet has its volume control, it only controls my local volume, but not the one on my mpd host.

I propose a feature to add a simple volume-control into the sound menu that controls the mpd-host. It should be optional and by default only be visible if the host is not local!

Dear karlrt, since the Sound Menu actions list is generated by the Sound Menu itself (AFAIK) at the moment, I unfortunately can't add the separate volume control to it.

May be Conor can clear up the situation, if such feature will be added in future?

Where would the option for the user to include this volume control exist ?

I don't think we'd need this functionality in indicator-sound. Why not get it implemented in mpd-sound-menu instead? And convert it into an indicator, of course.

Wouldn't it be a break of unification? Instead of gather all the sound applications in one sound menu, we would separate them.

Or may be I'm missing some features in libindicate-qt, that can help me to create a slider with indicator and position it straight in Sound Menu? Unfortunately, it lacks good examples, so I'm unsure if both things (slider and manual integration in Sound menu) could be performes.
