    I made a dvd, burned it and deleted the files off my hdd and I noticed that I burned it with the audio volume way to low so the only way to hear it is when I'd put the tv volume way up. So I copied my home made dvd back into the hdd and now I'm wondering if there's a way that I can open the vob's somehow and raise/increase the audio volume and then burn those new vob's to have the proper volume level permanently. So is there a program or something that can help me do this? Cause I don't wanna have to remake menus and buttons all over again.

    With the source DVD folder:

    Using Pgcedit, demux the video, audio, subtitles and chapters to a folder.

    Use the likes of 'Audacity' (with the ffmpeg library) to open the demuxed ac3 file, apply some amplification and export as a new ac3 file.

    Using Muxman, mux the video, new ac3, subtitles and chapters to a new DVD folder.

    Use Vobblanker to open the source DVD folder;replace the source Title with the new Title (from the new DVD folder) - 'Process' and you now have the new Title with the source menu.

    The current Audacity release, if you click 'Edit' > 'Preferences' has the option to download the required library.
    All of the programs are freeware and are available at Afterdawn or Videohelp.

    The awkward step is the audio.
    Not a lot of programs handle AC3 directly - most want it converted to WAV format first, then you have to get it back to AC3.

    Is there a simpler program? like one that can open vob's, tweak the audio volume level and then spit out the new vob's with the new audio level?
