    Hey folks,

    For a lot of video files I've transferred, the maximum volume is just too low. I've checked to make sure that Sound Check and Volume Limit are both off. Is there anything else I can do to boost the maximum volume? Some setting file I can edit?

    Failing that, is there a good video conversion software package that lets me boost the volume in the conversion process? I'm mostly working from digital files, DivX and such.

    I'm on a PC, WinXP, iPod Touch 32gig.

    You can change the volume level in iTunes. raise it to what you want. I did that with a couple movies and it worked fine.

    Raising the volume in iTunes will do nothing for the sound level when playing the movie on your Touch.

    Actually, raising the volume level did seem to do the trick. Great call! Thanks for the help.

    actually, i can confirm that this does work. i do it all the time with all of my music, and my videos. i raise the little volume bar in itunes and when i transfer those files to my ipod, the volume level is where it's at in itunes, so it remembers it somehow...

    Im going to assume you are in the EU, so your touch is capped, Jailbreak it and you can uncap the volume, makes it MUCH louder.Also ditch the ipod headphones and get some in the ear canal headphones like the cx300 which are much louder, the combo of an uncapped ipod touch and cx300 is so much louder than before its a joke.

    Ummmm... Right click any song/video > Get Info > Options = Volume Adjustment Slider. . . TaDa! Call me crazy, but that's all there in my iTunes and has been available ever since I started using iTunes years ago. Heh. :cool:

    Hey everyone,
    I have exactly the same problem. I do not know if this volume is too small for you, but I have to increase it because it is simply too quiet.

    Setting your equalizer within the iPod touch to, "Late Night" will also increase the volume across the board. A neat trick I learned here on the forums a couple of years ago.
