volume problem in mpcstar 5.2

Recommended Posts

hi im a great fan of mpcstar but only one reason keeps me away from using it instead i use vlc.

reason is when i increase my volume above 100% , voice becomes dispropotionately high and corrupted.

i am using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit with all my video n sound card drivers latest and updated.

this roblem existed in earlier versions also .i thought with 5.2 it would solve but it still there.

can u please suggest some workaround or improve this in new version.

i like mpcstar better then vlc or ne other players but because of this sound problem it annoys me to watch movies so i use vlc instead.

plz improve this bug so i can use ut all the time. B)

thanks in advance n waiting for reply.

Video and audio files have encoded audio levels that are designed to play upto 100%. Forcing them to play higher distorts them. What you need to do is turn the volume up on your speakers or sound card.

Anything above 100% will reduce quality.

u r right, i do agree with u, but it doesnt distort in vlc player,even if u go beyond 100%.u can check it with vlc player.

i think distortion is much more higher, sudden and out of proportion.

means if from 100% u go to even at 110%its so loud n then till 300% it hardly changes any.

wht i do, i keep vlc and mpcstar both in my system ,movies which sounds ok till 100% i see with mpcstar n for movies which r having low sound n i need to increase sound more than 100% i see with vlc player.

but honestly i like mpcstar more than vlc.

because of this reason only i keep vlc in my system.

means i think u ppl can do something for smooth increase of sound onwards 100%, it should be techanically not much probelamatic for u guys.

and thank u very much for quick reply.

Ok, I see what your saying, and I think I found the cause. This setting is like an audio boost service, and if you turn it on while your regular volume is on full, it can sound distorted and annoying.

Try this for a work a round...

Open volume control panel and reduce sliders to about half volume.

Then go to increase volume levels above 100% (I used 150% for my test).

Then you can adjust the sliders to fine tune your volume.

Let me know if this works better for you.

yup, actually i've tried it already and worked also.

but i m thinking of something permanent solution.

though i can bear with it, hope u consider it important enough to include in ur future version 5.3.

but honestly its the best player around, ive tried almost all other players.
