I just updated to Fedora 23, and now whenever I have a change in video, music, or even browsers, my volume is automatically cranked to 100%. I've tried all the suggestions on the pulseaudio troubleshooting site with no success.

Pavucontrol doesn't seem to have anything I can use either.

You guys have any idea?

I think this is a know problem , please try disable flat volumes :

vi /etc/pulse/daemon.conf , and uncomment :

flat-volumes = no

and restart pulseaudio (as normal user , not root)

killall pulseaudio
/usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog ( if daemon doesn't restart )

This is listed in the link I posted above that I tried. Didn't change anything.
