I downloaded the wmv file you put in the tutorial as well, and it's the same low volume.

Since this is not happening for everyone, I'll have to try and figure out what's different with my experience.

I didn't want to go off topic in your tutorial so I'll post back here on what I come up with.
Derek, if you could convert the .wmv file to another format - e.g. MP4 or AVI - maybe that would solve the problem. I would use Format Factory for the conversion, but I am sure you have an appropriate tool. I really wonder what is going on with some of you. Must be some epidemic - LOL.

Good idea, I'll give that a try and get back to you, I have Freemake installed so I'll try that first.

Isn't that strange. I really wonder what is going on. I just converted the file to .avi and that works very well (although the .wmv file works here too). Try a conversion and see whether that works on the laptop. Because when it does, I will convert the files before I upload them in the future.

Unfortunately I cannot test this difference here because the problem does not occur on any of my systems - laptops ot desktop.

WHS,
As long as I can hear it on desktop no need to worry about laptop.
24" screen vs 17 is a no brainer.

Understand. But that way I have no input to find out what is best to do the next time. If you have a minute, please convert the .wmv to .avi and let me know how that does on the laptop.

Will try later as I need to get lunch for Donna and do some chores around the house.
Not sure about converting but I am sure there are tuts in here for me to grab onto.

I tried a couple different conversions with Freemake and no luck, I'm trying with Format Factory right now.

By the way this tutorial of yours for Format Factory has good sound for me.

Update: Well converting with FF to AVI and adjusting the dB to 36 like Keith mentioned in the tut thread it now has regular volume levels.
