           Summary: Webkit API provides no volume control
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.6
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit API
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: me at haravikk.com

Title says it all really; the WebKit API doesn't seem to provide any way to control the volume of the content it's rendering, specially media files.
This is a bit troublesome as it means that an application cannot easily control the volume of WebKit content, meaning you can end up with an application that has muted all other sound sources but WebKit will continue to play at the system's volume.

This issue appears to affect Mac OS X the most, I expect the issue does exist in some form on other platforms, but they are better able to control sound output at an application level.
In any event, it would be nice to be able to better control the volume of sound produced by WebKit.
