    This is my favorite speech and there is only one version that can be found online. The volume is very weak. I tried to upload it to video.google, but them the volume went away completely.

    Here is the text, but nothing can match his presence that day.

    It is a .mov file. How can I enhance the sound and upload it to google?

    Thank you very much. This looks like a great forum.

    I'm not familiar with tools, dedicated to work with audio in .mov files.
    I have converted .mov files to AVI format and replaced the existing audio track with an adjusted version of same.

    'VirtualDubMod' loads a text file which 'AVISynth' uses to feed it video.
    The existing audio is saved as a .wav file.
    'Audacity' opens the .wav and you adjust the sound as required, then save it as a new .wav.
    The new wav is loaded into VirtualDubMod and compressed along with the video to a new AVI file.

    The text file (script) is a one liner created by Notepad and saved as 'filename.avs'
    The file is dragged onto VDubMod, and it loads the .mov in uncompressed format, hence the reason why the output video must be compressed - else the file would fill the hard drive.

    God willing, someone will come up with a one click solution.
    If not, you can try it.It's less complex than writing about it.
