i downloaded and installed your plugin. here's what's interesting. i tested a file with my current output settings and confirmed i still had the problem. then i changed the output to WASAPI and played the same file, and it was LOUD! that solved it. then i switched it back to Nullsoft DirectSound, and the volume was just as loud.
now that i know they both work, what is the advantage of using this plugin for output instead of the nullsoft one?
thank you for your help. i was getting sick of windows media player.
