    Is there anyway to turn the default volume down for these videos that seem to be automatically set to 100% volume???

    My Audio Icon in the Taskbar is set to under 50% for both the Speakers and the RealTek Playback. Yet, when I start a video in Firefox, without fail the volume is at 100% and, in some cases, it's nearly impossible to find the volume control in the video.

    What players are you referring to (flash, java, ...)?

    What, the browser automatically adjusts you system's volume control?! That's strange. I have the main volume control at about 100%, but the browsers themselves are turned down to about 40% in the Volume Mixer and nothing seems to change those settings. Also, most of the video services (like YouTube) seem to remember the volume level on the last video I watched and use it the next time I play a video.

    I'm sorry, I guess that this isn't really helping.m Like jiiteepee asked, what kind of video, what video services, what OS?

    I always have my volume set to 100% and adjust the audible volume by using the speaker system's volume, have done for quite a few years (except in the case of using headphones that do not have volume controls, of course).
    If the master volume is set to 50% in Windows the video volume should not be able to adjust it.
