I have dual boot with fedora 7 & windows Xp on my laptop. I use rhythmbox, mplayer, totem-xine for music and video. The sound volume is low in linux as compared to the windows XP on same machine. I changed the volume settings in the rhythmbox, mplayer to the maximum, but it was of very little use. Is it because I need good audio drivers for linux, if so which one should I download.
While watching videos, for some it is too bright & for some it is dark and just not pleasing to watch. The same video when watched in Windows XP is coming good. I changed the brightness setting of the LCD to a minimum value. Is it because of the video player, if so can you suggest a good video player, with which you can change the video setting like brightness, contrast of the movie being watched.
