    I am wondering if there's any easy way to boost the volume on an already-authored DVD of stuff taken from VHS tapes...

    I have TMPGEnc express and dvd author. Any help much appreciated, I hate to hand out dvds that need like a whole turn of the knob on the stereo amp to be heard at a proper volume.

    Demux the audio from the file produced by tmpgenc xpress.
    Load into Goldwave.
    Select Effect, Volume, Double.
    Save it as .wav
    Re-encode that .wav in tmpgenc to mp2.
    Remux with the video.
    Author.
    You can also try tmpgenc's volume increase/normalize during the original encode, but this can add a lot of time to the encoding.

    Rip the mpeg from the vobs. ReJig will do it (to elementary streams, which is what you need anyhow), then increase volume, and reauthor.
