           Summary: Please make Gnome as good as Windows for playing
    Classification: Desktop
           Product: GStreamer
           Version: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: don't know

      GNOME target: ---
     GNOME version: ---

This is a very annoying problem.  I have labeled this as an enhancement but
IMHO it really is a bug.  It is the most aggravating Gnome problem for me.

The problem is the 99% of the time I can't hear videos.  The Gnome volume
control is all the way up and my speakers are all the way up.  Videos that play
nicely on Windows are barely audible on Gnome.  Pretty please fix this problem.

I searched bugs and I found one, Bug 325224: "Normalize audio volume"
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=325224) that is marked
"Unconfirmed", but believe me, I can confirm that this is a problem for me.

Maybe I don't have the right plugin or codec, whatever that is.  FWIW, I
installed every GStreamer plugin I could find and I looked on the web, but the
problem lingers on.  Am I the only one with this problem?

Thanks guys.  Gnome rocks.  I just can't hear it!
