At least some changes done to the VLC player configuration are not propagated to Phonon. In my case, I tried to change the FluidSynth MIDI soundfont from the default FluidR3 to a custom one, and while the VLC player does acknowledge the change, the Phonon VLC backend does not, it keeps using the default settings.
Nothing changes if I create a ~/.config/Phonon/vlc.conf file (by copying ~/.config/vlc/vlcrc).
I would also test other settings, but unfortunately I can't find a good setting to test right now.
Well, the VLC application is totally independent of the phonon-backend-vlc, the backend uses the libvlc library, not the player or its settings. So don't be astonished if one does not propagate to the other :)
That's fair enough, but the matter is that there still should be some place to configure the backend. As it is, it just runs on defaults, which is obviously not always ideal. But then I suppose I would have to open an enhancement instead?

Yes that should be a feature request.
