Hello, as you must have experienced some videos are recorded at low volume. As a result even when you turn your volume control to maximum you can barely hear what's going on.

In general, does anyone use an SW utility to amplify volume, which was recorded at low?

I have a 6 speaker surround sound with an 8 inch subwoofer, with a 140 watt peak power. there isnt anything to quiet to play on my computer. Often you can up these though by playing with the sound mixer provided with windows. just right click the audio symbol on the task bar and click open sound mixer, and adjust all your volumes from there.

I just use 2 Bose Speakers and I can hear everything clearly. Even when I can't, i'll just plug in some headphones.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

Yes, but sometimes I am lazy to get wired with speakers, and just want to use the notebook speakers. But some movies are recorded at low: so even if the volume is turned to maximum, you only hear 50% of what your speakers could do.

So I tho of some software solution for these instances.

Yes, the same way as some pirated movies could be recorded at low, some home videos from friends, or some youtube stuff could also be recorded at all. Basically the creator is not a professional in recording voice. Then you hear like 30% of your speakers capacity even when your speakers at the maximum.

There's nothing wrong with my settings, because like you said, videos recorded by professionals (like original movies) are recorded at the right level, so no problem there.

Well, yes, non-professionals may not know how to make the sound just right. I haven't had many problems except twice on Youtube.
