    VERY low video volume within RoadRunner

    I have been beating my head with this one.

    When I play any video within Roadrunner, you can barely hear the volume. When I play music, it is very loud. Getting out of RoadRunner, if I play the same videos, it is as loud as the music (as it should be).

    I have tried this playing video with winamp, windvd and media player and they all exhibit the same characteristics as far as volume when played within RoadRunner. I did change the skin to several others and the same thing happened in all of them.

    Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?

    Thanks

    I've tried this doesn't really correct the problem. I have had this same problem. Play a movie in Mediaplayerc in RR and you can barely hear it, play the same movie in MPC standalone and it's just fine.

    Exactly! Did you find a way to correct this?

    What a pain in the ***. I was having problems playing a few .mpg files so I downloaded a few codecs and media player classic worked great. It played every video file I have without a hitch...until I tried to play them thru RoadRunner then nothing. Those same pre-problem videos will not play in RoadRunner but play great outside of roadRunner. I tried the cofig'ing NOT to use external player so I assumed it would use the classic. I tried config'ing Use External and pointed to media classic and still the same thing.
    ANY IDEAS?????

    Media Player classic...

    If I have RoadRunner to use the default player, doesn't it run the media player classic in the road runner folder? And if so, shouldn't I see the process within windows task manager? Why the hell does classic play all videos great (including the volume) outside of RoadRunner but when within, it can't play all the videos and the volume is WAY too low. There has to be some ini settings somewhere that is screwing this up.

    Would appreciate any ideas. Cripe, I'm screwing around with this crap and I have to get up in 3 hours for work. FRUSTRATING AS HELL.

    Hi all,

    I had exactly the same the problem, and nobody could help me. If you do a search you can see I posted the same thing about 2 months ago.

    What I found is, RR doesn't actually use MPC on my system - it uses Windows Media Player!

    So try to play a video in WMP, turn the volume up in WMP using its slider, and try again in RR. This fixed the problem for me.

    Thanks.
