This is driving me crazy.

1) I have my Android muted
2) I have the slider all the way to the left (off)

But the media Audio seems to be independent of the Mute and Slider. It drives me crazy because if I accidentally play a video everyone in the office hears it even though I think my phone is silent.

I would like to have all the sounds (System, Notifications, Media and the RingTone) all locked to the slider position.  Anyway to do that? I'll write an Android app if I have to to get this to work the way I want.

How do I do this?

This seems to be a new issue I am seeing after an OS update.
