View Full Version : DVD Sound Control

31-01-2005, 04:51 PM
I have a Toshiba A70 series laptop. When playing CD's. the sound volume can be varied to an acceptable level (when put through external speakers).
When I play a DVD however, the sound volume is very limited. Is there a tweak to this situation (to up the volume when playing DVD's on the laptop)?
Any suggestion greatfully accepted.

Are you using a different program to play the movie as opposed to the CD.
Does that have a volume control on the program as such. I.E. in addition to the master volume control for the soundcard properties.

Whatever dvd playback software your using
go to configuration (or properties or setup, whatever)
click on audio and and advanced and you might see a setting for different audio configurations, one of which might be noisy/boosted environment which is recommended for laptops. Louder but crappier sound. Better than muted quality sound anyway :)

I know what the Highlander is talking about is in PowerDVD and in Doze thats all that I'd use for DVDs.

You could try VideoLAN Client (Region-Free DVD Playback) otherwise, as that has some nice config options which may help.
