Hmmhh I can assure you that it works here and was completely messed up
(*here*) up before...

Indeed I am using todays mplayer cvs and did not check how it that was
dealt with in older versions... however the set absolute value seems to be
in older versions...

  { MP_CMD_VOLUME, "volume", 1, { { MP_CMD_ARG_FLOAT,{0} }, {MP_CMD_ARG_INT,{0}}, {-1,{0}} } },

    // Audio
    { "volume", mp_property_volume, CONF_TYPE_FLOAT,
      M_OPT_RANGE, 0, 100, NULL },

This suggests that you should use the 'set absolute value feature' and %d
and round() the value to be backwards compatible...

basically lines 1967 and 2048 ff. in mplayer.c in mplayer cvs...
and line 69 in input/input.c

Sorry for the confusion I've caused...

All the best,
