Very low volume for mp3 youtube or windows media player.

I have windows vista I have the volume turn completely. But it is very low that if I use the speakers that are built into the computer the volume is fine. But if I plug a speaker on the back of the computer volume is very low.


Hi Robert,

Welcome to the Microsoft Community and forums thanks for posting the question.

I see that the volume is very low during playback of Youtube or Windows Media Player. We will analyze and identify the cause of the problem.

1. What is the brand and model of the computer?

2 is this problem limited to Youtube video and Windows Media Player?
3. do you have the codecs installed on the computer?

4. are you aware of changes to the computer before the show?

Because the built-in speakers work correctly, the external speakers may be corrupted.

Method 1:

I suggest you to connect the speakers to another computer and check if the speakers are working properly or not.

Method 2:

Run the Fixit described in the article:

Diagnose and solve the problems of Windows audio playback automatically

Method 3:

Although most speakers have a volume control, you can control the overall level of sound using Windows.

Adjust the speaker volume

  • Invisible MP3 files in Windows Media Player

    After a registry cleanup, I ended up in a strange situation. Windows Media Player 11 will play MP3 very well, if I double click on an MP3 file in Windows Explorer to the media player will start and play the file.

    If however in Media Player, I open a file I don't see any MP3 file, if the file type is defined for media files (all types). In the drop-down menu, I don't see a type of MP3 file. If I select all the MP3s files are displayed and can be read.

    Where and how can I reset the media player will identify the types of media?

    Thanks in advance!

    OK, I found the problem!

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Extensions the following is missing:

    In the Descriptions:

    1 file REG_SZ Audio (*.wav; *.snd; *.au; *.aif; *.aifc; *.aiff; *.wma; *.mp3)

    In MUIDescriptions:

    Hello Matt,

    No, sorry, we do not support remotely. If you want, and are able, you can always do a video or take snapshots of your desktop and post a link to them here. A lot of people do.

    Another thing to try that I had some success with is download and install a new set of codecs. This is the 64 Bit freeware game that I use on my bench, give it a try: (make sure to use the Direct download link).

    Keep me posted and let me know how you fare.

    Kind regards

    Have you received an error message?

    I am sorry to say that this question is out of our support. In fact, it is supported by Sony. I suggest you to contact Sony support. However, you can try the following basic steps, but if the problem persists, please contact you Sony for support.

    Here are the steps through which you can sync your music from media player to Player Playstation Portable:

    1 USB cable to hook between the PSP and the PC.

    2. on the PSP under settings, select USB connection.

    3. your Vista PC should recognize that the PSP is connected. The PSP should be displayed "USB Mode".

    4. on the PC to add music on the removable drive that represents your memory stick PSP. Put the music in the music folder.

    You can also go through the following steps:

    Step 1: Connect the portable music player to the computer via the USB port. MP3 players and other devices notebooks, all updates have this ability, which is scheduled to manage multimedia files easily.

    Step 2: Open Windows Vista and then click 'Sync '. If this is your initial test using the device, your system can choose to sync files automatically or manually depending on the capability of your music device.

    Step 3: Click on the button "Finish". In automatic mode, the entire library is synced to the playlist to your player instantly. In manual mode, however, once you press the button 'Finish', you will need to select the playlist you want to sync with your portable music player.
