To Divitarova,
Have you downloaded and installed the mpeg3 and mpeg4 decoders in the first place? I am giving an advise unasked for: if you want good quality from M Player, download Alsamix and Alsamix GUI from the software manager and in their window just UP the Volume ( i am just passing on a fantastic piece of advise from a "Sound" Pro)! Best wishes! IF THE PREVIOUS POST SOLVES YOUR PROB.,JUST FORGET THIS POST!(Very sorry for the bold type)


regards,
vyver.

PS: My apologies to divyashree! She was faster off the track, while i was composing my post!
