Hey, all.

In Windows, when I watch videos or listen to music, I use a Winamp plugin called TomSteady to dynamically normalize the audio in real-time during playback. I'd like to do the same thing in Ubuntu, but WinAmp is a bitch in Wine, and I don't think TomSteady works in it anyway.

So, is there some kind of plugin for Totem, or some other media player, that will crunch the sound in real time so that the volume always stays close to constant? It doesn't have to be Totem. Any player will do, as long as it can play back typical a/v formats like divx, xvid, mpeg, mp3, etc.

Thanks!

Hi hurtstotalktoyou! Maybe it's too late to answer, but better late than never. :) Mplayer will do the trick, it has appropriate option in GUI turned off by default.
