DVD volume issues...

So I've noticed that a number of DVD's I've bought recently have maximum volume levels that are tricky for me to hear on my laptop using headphones (I'm hard of hearing). I've no issues with volume watching vids on YouTube, etc., and it's not all DVD's that are seemingly so afflicted. Is there anything I can do to sort this out?

Did you try using a different DVD program? Could be the one you are currently using is malfunctioning.

edit: You said you bought a a few DVDs lately so that rules out the DVDs being defective so it must be something wrong with your current player.

Check the dvd menu and see if there is a stereo audio track instead of a 5.1 track. that will help since you're listening on headphones.

Download vlc player and you will be able to put the volume higher.
