Possibly a very simply problem but I'm not as familiar with OSX as I am with Windows or Linux.
When I watch anything on Netflix on OSX (10.7.2) which uses Silverlight (5.0.61118.0) whether I use external speakers or internal speakers, the volume is frustratingly low.
To make a film watchable, I have to move the system volume slider to the top, and on my external speakers (which are amplified) I have to turn the volume dial to 80% or even higher on some titles.
Suffice to say, any sound notification alerts that come through literally scare the living daylights out of me and have woken my child/wife at times!
I've seen various things on the App Store that purport to amplify certain sounds, but I can't bring myself to pay for something that seems so obviously missing from the sound driver set.
Am I missing a mixer/EQ preference or do I need to go poking around elsewhere ? As well as alert notifications, iTunes/VOX/VLC all have correct volumes.
This is the kind of Mac:
Model Name: iMac Model Identifier: iMac9,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.93 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 6 MB Memory: 4 GB
Basically, 2009 24" iMac using the built-in Intel High-Definition audio.
