    Hi there,

    A lot of my rips from DVD are playing strange. I have 2 normal computer speakers (not surround sound) and when playing in VLC, on the quiet bits of movies such as 'people talking' for example, it's very very quiet so i have to turn it up. Then when say an explosion happens (on the movie) it deafens everyone and i have to rush to the speakers to turn it down.

    Media Player Classic tends to handle this a bit better but not a great deal!

    Is there a function in either VLC or MPC to properly resolve these issues?

    Thank you.

    Try Kmplayer, which has a Dynamic Range Compressor (DRC) plugin available. VLC might as well.

    Settings->Preferences->Audio codecs->A/52->A/52 Dynamic Range Compression

  3. Go to your AC3 decoder and set it to downmix to stereo. Also, make sure your sound card's speaker settings are set to stereo.

    In MPC: View -> Options -> Internal Filters. In the Transform Filters box double click on AC3. Set AC3 and DTS to Decode To Speakers -> Stereo.

    From Control Panel: Sounds and Audio Devices, Volume tab, Speaker Settings -> Advanced -> Desktop Stereo Speakers.

    Maybe 'Normalize' in MPC 'Audio Switcher'? And with VLC, 'Volume normalizer' in 'Audio Settings'?
