Description

Boxee volume control should change the operating system volume instead of having an internal volume.
Another reason is having Boxee running other components such as flash and changing Boxee volume does not apply to the flash volume which is a problem.

Rafael: when issue resolved, need to stop prompting the application message "changing volume in this video is not supported"

User's Notes:
The current volume controls are pretty flaky:
don't work on lots of Apps and often stop working on Hulu videos. Why not just have the volume-controls change the default operating system mixer level? This would be much more robust.

Linux Note: I have actually manually done this by disabling the controls in my Lircmap file and added an irexec command to my generic .lircrc file that adjust the volume using alsamixer. However, in this scheme no indication of volume change is shown on the screen. I think boxee should do something similar when changing volume.
