View Full Version : [all variants] Very low volume of AC3 in Mplayer

July 5th, 2008, 08:32 AM
Each time I try to play a AC3 on my two speakers it is VERY thiny, like the people are always whispering. I can't understand a word. I even put the speakers on full (250 Watt), set Master and PCM volume on full and still can't hear anything.

Testing it with a MP3 was playing EXTREMELY loud with the setting above.

I'm assuming the AC3 is 5.1, playback on 2 speakers leads to a loss of the other 4 channels i think. Thats why it seems quiet. Try this switch: -af volnorm 2:0.25 should help somewhat.
