      Qt4: limit the UI volume to 125% (about +6dB) · 5ad71b5f
      Rémi Denis-Courmont authored
      Far too many clueless users push the volume far too high[1]. Then they
      complain that VLC distorts the sound... Really anything above 100% (0dB)
      is prone to saturation. In my experience, loss of quality is noticeable
      at +6dB and unbearable at +10dB.
      
      For the references:
      In VLC 1.1, the UI was restricted to 200% (+6dB) by default,
      while the audio output core allowed up to 400% (+12dB).
      PulseAudio recommends +11dB.
      Microsoft Windows limits to +0dB.
      
      [1] I actually compared VLC 1.1, VLC 2.0 and WMP with an external
      decibel metter. They give the same output at 0dB. At 6dB, both VLC
      versions give the same decibel readings and slight distortion. So the
      complaints are purely caused by confusion and cluelessness from users.
