If I edit the video in Sony Vegas its at full volume. Before you even ask.... YES, the volume for both speaker and WMP12 is at max.
I also have this rather odd issue of my left channel on my headphones randomly muting then coming back during use.
This left channel issue was occuring on my 680i onboard so I went out and bought a brand new XFI extreme audio and guess what it randomly mutes the left channel on that one too.
Just to be sure it wasn't my headset I also bought a brand new pair of logitech clearchat's at the time I purchased my XFI card 2 days ago. Left channel goes out on those too, WTH... I used to really love windows 7, but over the last two weeks I have had the craziest audio problems.
I am even considering going back to Vista if I can't fix this muffled audio in WMP eventhough it is at full on the slider and the speaker icon in taskbar.
Hi and welcome. I will try and help you on your sound problem.
Have you tried this?
Open Windows 7 Control Panel
Select System Icon
Select in upper left column Device Manager.
Go down to Sound and Video from the list and open the list by clicking the little arrow on the left of the words.
Do you see your sound card?
Do you see any large exclamation points next to anything?
At this point if you right mouse click on your sound card you can select uninstall.
After this is done you want to shutdown and restart your computer to see if Windows 7 sees your sound card again and installs the drivers.
If you have a CD for your sound card you can install Windows 7 drivers from that but I think if you are hooked up to the internet let Windows 7 find the best driver for you.
At this point we will see what happens then try somehting else.
