Previews on main page too loud?
« on: December 05, 2008, 07:03:59 PM »
9 out of 10 times, whenever I go to the new Rifftrax page, the riffs and movie audio come blaring out at heavily distorted levels. I have no problems with anything from YouTube, or even downloaded Rifftrax audio and shorts, but it's annoying to have the website screaming at me the moment I go in. The player doesn't remember my settings when I try turning it down, and it autoplays every time I access the page. I may also be watching MST3K reruns at times, so I know it isn't just me having my volume turned up too loudly.

Does anyone else have this problem?

I hadn't noticed because I had the player set to off and it's saved that setting for me.  When I turned it on just now it did seem louder than it should be, compared to the riff I was just editing.

I've noticed the same thing. It's very annoying. Why can't the sound ramp up when it starts, or a delay of a few seconds one the page is up. Something.

Or just a "push butan, receive yuks" option?

I concur.  All one would need to do (one who works on this site) is go into the player's settings and set the default auto-play volume a little lower.

there's a sample player setting in the account preferences, but i suppose that wouldn't help people that aren't logged in.

I agree with this complaint.  I turned off the player because of this but that doesn't help if I'm not logged in.

Yeah we'd turned it down once already but we'll check it out again.

I have noticed that it is better recently. Thanks
