Music and effects louder than speech?

Hi all,

When I watch numerous .nsv streams from the Shoutcast TV list in Winamp, it seems the music, and even more so the sound effects, are SO much louder than the speech/dialogue. I notice this on two different computers I've tested it on, so I doubt it's my actual PC audio setup. But I'm open to any suggestions in remedying this problem. I hate always camping the volume controls, turn UP when folks are talking, turn DOWN when things are exploding, heh.

Thanks,
Oy.

That problem is due to the way people encode the audio portion of the video, so there is really nothing you can do.

Yeah, you should go complain to those giving you the FREE stream :P Anyho, as sankt said, the encoding might be the problem, or the movie itself might have been the problem before it was encoded, who knows

Thanks for the replies. I just assumed the problem was on my end.

I've been messing with some of the "volume leveller" plugins, but none seem to work well. Any suggestions?

Best,
Oy.
