Windows 7: Is there a freeware software-based volume amplifier for Windows?

Is there a freeware software-based volume amplifier for Windows?

I have a problem with certain Youtube videos where the volume is very low, even though I have system volume and all other volume sliders at max. I'm assuming the issue is with the base volume of the video itself since it's only in occasional videos. Is there some sort of program I can use to amp volume beyond that? Something that won't require I spend money on a headphone amplifier box.

Hi Diosoth

Some Video Converter applications can enhance audio play back to (eg) %200, some are free and some are retail .. but Google is your friend

For those who want to experiment (do some backup\create restore point first) take a look at Equalizer APO Free Download

Works fine here (am not using any of the EQ) for adjusting overall level , set a Preamp +\- value in config.txt and save it, it then immediately applies the change, adding or substracting to the system volume.

I use XBMC and YouTube add-on to watch YouTube videos (and almost everything else), XBMC allows volume aplification.

I am not sure if this question is regarding YouTube add-on for XBMC mentioned in my previous post? XBMC is a free media player, not a browser add-on which has the volume amplification feature natively.

Links to both XBMC and its YouTube add-on in my previous post.

No I'm saying that OP can use their normal browser if they can find an extension. Installing and setting up xbmc for just YouTube sounds counter productive. That being said all my movies are on Gotham and i recommend it for that hands down lol.
