I noticed a problem with certain video files where speech volume component is just too low. I googled a bit and it seems that the problem is that it tries to play surround sound on stereo speakers and it fails to blend everything in as it should. If I play the same video in mplayer, everything is normal.
Does anyone else have the same problem? Anyone know how to fix this? I tried changing the output module in vlc audio settings, but the problem would remain no matter what I chose. Thanks.
Version of VLC that I am using is 1.1.12 on Arch-Linux (KDE 4.7.2).
If you any additional info is needed, I will provide it.
