    KDE Plasma: ☑ Raise maximum volume

    ☑ Raise maximum volume Before I make a bug report: does this feature work for anyone? I can drag to visually raise the volume above 100%: – however there's no audible increase, and when I cease dragging the slider, it bounces back to the left, to the 100% mark.

    Hello, can someone explain to me how to use the VPC feature of the operating system?

    Solved How to record desktop audio on OBS-Studio

    Okay, so I've been at this for a while now.

Since then, I switched to FreeBSD but also streamed from...
