wmc volume is very low

I am using WMC and the volume is really really low when playing .avi
when I play .mkv I can crank the volume using ffshow (I use shark007)

anyone point me in the right direction to resolve this?

Doing this may help, change to DVD 48000, this helps sometimes.

I'm going try that too. I have the same issue. Usually I just crank up the TV volume, but if I forget and go back to live TV it scares me to death.

Yea change the quality and, I feel stupid I didn't notice this, but there are a ton of settings for sound in the control panel. Go to the enhancements page and check "loudness equalization" or something like that. That makes all the programs on the pc the same volume. I'm used to xp where is you needed a 3rd party software for decent sound settings ha.

Even with 3rd patry software on XP (pre-sp3) you are restricted to CD audio quality due to a hard-coded limitation when XP was developed and the fact there was no high-quality (above CD quality) sound cards and it was believed there never would be, A patch was released after SP2 and included with SP3 that removed this restriction however.

It did work for me. I had it at "Studio" since I thought it would sound better.
