Package: src:vlc
Version: 2.2.4-6+b2
Severity: wishlist

Dear Main tainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

Muting audio.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

Loudspeaker logo is counter intuitive: it shows a LS when every other
devices (TV, DVD readers, etc) show a striked LS - this logo also disappears
from display, which isn't logical because users can't know if audio is muted
or not, especially with DVB that sometimes loses audio by itself.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

Once LS logo is not on the screen anymore, nobody knows if audio has been lost
or if it is muted.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

LS logo being striked and visible the whole time audio is muted.
