            Bug ID: 199505
           Summary: [GStreamer] media/video-volume.html broken after
                    switching from cubic to linear scaling
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKitGTK

Reported test failure was,

This failure was caused by r246730, although it's not a regression. I believe it's a bug in the PA project. PA does it's own linear<->cubic conversions, which was part of the motivation for r246730 in the first place. However, despite the APIs for this conversion promising a inverse operation, we get,

pa_sw_volume_to_linear(pa_sw_volume_from_linear(0.5)) -> 0.500001

The reason this worked before was due to the cubic scaling we initially applied. When you cube 0.5, you get 0.125 and pa_sw_volume_to_linear(pa_sw_volume_from_linear(0.125)) -> 0.125, so the cbrt gives back 0.5. The test passes, but not in the way you would expect.

I believe the bug in PA is due to their use of implicitly widening 32-bit integers to 64-bits in their interpolation code, and getting garbage (undefined memory) in the resulting value which when cast back to float, gives us a rounding issue. I am talking with the developers about it.
