The GUI documentation is fairly up-to-date. For hpotmeter you'll see at
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/skin-file.html#skin-hpotmeter that the
6th value (i.e. the second '50') is the default for the volume. Simply change
it to any other value you'd like.

Unless you do as requested you may encounter problems with filenames.

I can't make sense of that. Seems to be a shared memory issue.
