    I know this topic has come up before but I still haven't found anything that works, specifically for movies and video.

    I installed a music player that works well for audio files but I've had no luck on audio volume for video. I've tried both the free and paid versions of volume plus and they're just not loud enough.

    I went into settings and placed speaker and headset on max volume and it still sucks. Head phone jack has good connection, etc

    Any ideas? I'm at the point of getting rid of this tablet as primary use is for watching movies when I travel for business.

    Thanks in advance

    Maybe the video files you're watching are encoded at too low volume? Music being loud enough but not video seems very peculiar.
    Try playing video with mx player and try software decoding, on the off chance there's something going wrong with hardware decoding.

    Have you tried one of the audio booster apps? Something like noozoxide? Folks have said that has helped with volume issues in the past. I know it's made a good difference to me on my phone.

    It might be just a trait of the videos themselves. I know a few of my movies have their audio mastered at a really low volume, probably to preserve dynamic range. Which is good when you play it on a nice surround sound system. Not so much when your playing it on a low powered tablet headphone jack or speaker.

    In whatever audio enhancing app you use, enable compression, since it may help get rid of quiet and loud noises. Maybe rooting and install a different kernel, since that seemed to improve the volume on my tablet.

    We all know that the biggest issue is the audio volume is horrible on this device. The hacks such as Volume+ do not seem to work with 4.2.1. I have tried several including noozoxide and none of them have any real effect. Unless I want to re-encode all my videos and music to boost the volume it will continue to be our burden. Hopefully one day Google will figure it out and make a fix.

    It seems that once I rooted and installed a different ROM, it got rid of the volume issues. So its definitely software related and can be fixed.

    Although the movie thing isn't really something you can get around. That's just the way the files are.
