[pulseaudio-discuss] How to prevent certain applications from changing recording volume?

It changes the device volume. I often have to use web-based conference
tools and apparently browsers like auto adjusting the microphone gain.
However, this annoys as it is perfectly calibrated for other applications
already. There is no way to stop these applications from adjusting the gain
and so I'd like to do this at a pulseaudio level.

I already had that line in my daemon.conf.
