Be Cautious with your VLC Media Player

Every one knows VLC media Player is a global awesome player for playing both Audio and Video Formats, it plays almost all available Formats. It has lots of advantages, one main advantage is its Volume Option, in VLC media Player you can Set 2 Times Higher Volume than other Media Players. This Volume can be Easily increased using Ctrl + UP ARROW or Scrolling mouse Wheel up.

When you keep the volume at 400%, it amplifies sound than normal output. The Speakers Used in Desktop Computers Can Produce sound than normal, but if you take laptop speakers there is a limit for producing the sound, it is designed for portable purpose, If the limit exceeds your Laptop Speaker will get Spoiled so always keep low sound in VLC media player if you are using it in laptop.

The Other important thing is “You Can’t Claim Warranty From the Manufacture” because its your mistake. You Have to Spend Your own Bucks to Repair it. So Keep your Volume Lower or Use Headphones or External Speakers.

I hope you Guys keep this in your mind and save your money ?

  1. Thanks, but I’m not VLC user know. Movie player on Ubuntu is enough for all 🙂

  2. ohk….hey Karthik, what a coincidence…it has happened to my laptop…I think so. No sound comes from the laptop speakers. It happened a long back. And if I am not confused, I was using VLC media player when this problem happened. I must have played with the sound settings 🙁

    Without sound, my laptop looks dull. I would have gone for repair but I delayed. I will soon go for a repair. Thanks for sharing this info.

  3. oww thanx for the info… i hav been using VLC recently due to the volume extending option… 🙂

  4. I’ve been using this K, and it’s good!

    Good day!

  5. Hey thanks for sharing this 🙂 i keep the volume low.

  6. it is wrkin gr8 for me….. 🙂 i do sometimes find tht black screen prob of VLC vry annoyin…..thnks bro 4 d share…..
    happy bloggin… 🙂

  7. Im a VLC fan. I use VLC when I’ve problem with other media players that do not read certain video format. It always works fine.

  8. ohh no man, i was completely anaware of that. i have been doing this same mistake for last almst 1 year since whn i got my 1st laptop… i always kept 400% volume… i need to change it.. i love laptop…thanks.

  9. Hi…

    Thanx for letting us know about this info. I’m a great fan of VLC. I use to listen to songs in high volume. I think that I’m the right person to keep this thing in my mind.

  10. oh gosh! i was not aware of it. I have been using it on my lap for a long time.. thanks for letting us know.

  11. VLC is mt favorite media player, in my lap sound is always below 10 % 🙂

  12. Oh that quite true. One must be careful with VLC from now on.

  13. Well, usually I am not hearing-impaired and like to keep the volume down.

    But after reading your posts, as a test I increased the volume to 400% (with the laptop volume at it’s full limit too). No sign of any speaker damage it. Hmm… 🙂

    P.S. I have been using VLC since half a decade now and the laptopn on which I did this test is a still-under warranty 9 months old Dell Inspiron with Core 2 Duo.

  14. Oh thanks I knew about the double volume but was un aware of the fact about lappy speakers.. 🙂 But anyways these days I use only Klite because VLC crashes regularly showing some Hardware-X or directX problem, where u can hear only the audio.

    BTW karthikeyan you have a nice blog!! Keep it going!

  15. I hardly listen to music on my laptop and whenever I listen I keep the volume at 60-70%. So no risk for me 🙂
