    movie player with GOOD dialog settings (modern movies - Mix is poor)

    Hi here

    while VLC plays just about everything you can throw at it (and it's cheap --i.e FREE) I find when watching modern movies the audio mix is just appalling -- effects are humungously LOUD whilst the dialog is often at a very low level -- same problem I have in the Cinema which is why I rarely go any more unless I'm watching classic older films.

    I've often fiddled around with the equalizer on VLC with limited success -- seems for movies - especially action films released after about 1995 I'm forced to use the subtitles to stop myself from going Deaf du to the huge variation in volume between the effects / music and dialog.

    Any players that can possibly do a better than than VLC of correcting te Audio mix and enhancing Dialog while fading excessive sound / music effects. VLC though is pretty good usually.

    Older films seem to work perfectly -- was watching a classic re-run of the old pre 1940 version of Hunchback of Notre Dame -- dialog was perfectly audible.

    Have Sound Engineers just lost the plot these days -- I'd love an evening to the cinema but fear for my ears these days.

    Hi jimbo,

    Try Pot Player available at

    It plays pretty much everything and sound is good from Sony TV.
