Hi all,

i have a powerbook and ive noticed that whenever i watch things
on youtube or play songs or anything that my sound is often at full capacity
and scaled to the highest setting...

what kinda throws me off is that its only at this level (the highest setting)
that the audio is "just right" ...

shouldnt it be much louder? i dont know what is wrong..ive made sure
each audio setting on the separate player (whether it be the embedded player in youtube, or quicktime, etc.) is set at the highest as well

what gives? anyone know?

can those of u who have a macbook tell me how your audio is when at full capacity? is it super loud or "just right"? logically it should be abit louder than "just right" considering its at the highest setting....

QUOTE Thanks

I have a problem as well whenever I am listening to music with iTunes or online I turn the volume all the way up on the Mac and it is kinda quit, but while watching a movie in VLC I can hit Command and the up arrow and turn it up louder.... much louder within the program. If it can do this then why doesn't Mac add it?
