Odd. I had to artificially boost the volume of the hi-res cutscenes because for me the volume was much too low when I played it under Linux. I assumed the behavior was the same on all platforms, but maybe I was wrong.

I'll have to ask someone with access to the game and Windows if he can help debug it...

If you're feeling adventurous, it's this part of the code.

Maybe I misunderstood. Do you mean you get clipping and too loud audio with the low-resolution cutscenes? That may be just the way they're encoded, I guess. (Not sure, though.)

When I boosted the audio for the high-resolution videos I *tried* to keep them from clipping too badly.
