Default Windows Media Player - Low Volume!

I downloaded a Prison Break episode and when I played it with WMP the volume was so low that I could barely hear people talking in the episode. My speakers are up full and the volume adapter within WMP itself is full as well.

I've tried playing it with VCL Player, the volume is much better but there's spells when you can't hear people talking at all..it's just background noises/music. I'm no lip reader!

Is there anything I can do or is just a faulty download? Thanks in advance, Parky.

Sorry? The actual quality of the file is brilliant, just poor volume.

Dont pirate shows?

Have you gone thru the Windows Audio setup? Are you sure the Windows Volume control is up?

While it may be a good quality viewing episode, then sound quality may suck. Sounds like the person who made it didn't do a very good job.

I think your probably right my friend. It doesn't really matter now as I've downloaded another one which is perfect.

Cheers everyone for the replies.
