I'm an avid fan of WinAmp, but there seems to be an issue with how volume is controlled with this program.
Whenever I start WinAmp, it works perfectly. The problem arises when I try to watch a YouTube video or something else with sound. When I begin playing a YouTube video, the sound is at the same level as that of the WinAmp sound. So for example, if in WinAmp, the sound is at 80%, the sound will be at 80% in the YouTube video, regardless of the YouTube volume setting.
What I have done to try and fix this
I've tried the procedure suggested of going to "Preferences / Output / waveOut output v2.1 (d) [out_wave.dll]" and un-checking the "Enable" attribute check-box underneath "Volume Control", but unfortunately, this then prevents me from controlling the volume from within WinAmp. In my opinion, I should be able to control WinAmp's volume...
Do we have to pick between the poisons here? In my mind, I keep thinking that we should be able to adjust every volume of every application in respect--or proportion--to the system's "master volume."
Any help or insight with this is appreciated.
