Low volume on Fedora 14

Recently I' ve bought a new pc and i' ve installed on it Fedora 14 64bit Gnome edition. When I try to see a video on youtube or play an .mp3 or .avi file they run regularly but the audio volume it' s very low also after turn it up both from the speaker both from the Gnome audio utility. If I try to play something with this volume level on Windows it blows me up! What can I do? (I use the sound card built in the mother board)

If you don't have the pavucontrol package installed, then install it.
Open pavucontrol, in the menu it should appear as "PulseAudio Volume Control". Explore and play with the volume settings there. It should solve your problem.

Re: Low volume on Fedora 14

Are you checking both the "Output Devices" and "Playback" volume settings in pavucontrol? Use pavacontrol settings in conjunction with you your regular "mixer" application settings.

Re: Low volume on Fedora 14

And you've checked the "Configuration" tab in pavucontrol and also the "port" setting on the "Output Devices" tab? If you're audio output is going to external speakers, how about the volume control knob on those speakers? Somewhere, there is a setting that should work.

Re: Low volume on Fedora 14

If I remeber correctly from when I was running F14, I had to adjust the alsa volume
Code:
alsamixer
and save it
Code:
alsactl store

Re: Low volume on Fedora 14

As a last resort, you could open a terminal and do:
Code:
alsamixer -c0
F6 key to select the correct output device and make sure you're on [Playback] in the "View" setting.
Alsamixer may show you volume sliders that you are not seeing in your regular "mixer" application.
