Default MP3-to-OGG using BeSweet/GUI low volume problem

Hello everyone,
I have successfully used the OGG/OGM guide in the past. But I'm having a problem this time.

As explained in the guide, I used BeSweet/GUI to convert an .mp3 file to .ogg (90kbps) . I then multiplexed the .ogg with a DivX .avi (video only) file to create the final .ogm movie file (video + audio) using VirtualDubMod.
My problem is: The audio in the final .ogm movie file is too low in volume; much lower than the original .mp3 file!

I don't know if this problem was caused by BeSweet when creating the .ogg, or by VirtualDubMod when creating the .ogm since I have no way of listening to the .ogg file, although I strongly suspect BeSweet.
(Anyone know of a stand-alone .ogg player???)

How can I boost/amplify the audio? I used all the standard settings mentioned in the OGG/OGM guide (Hybrid gain) and don't know much about manipulating BeSweet/GUI's settings.

Thank you very much,
Maz

play the ogg file separetly to find out if the problem is the ogg file itself or the muxing process later on.

in case the ogg needs boosting, switch from HYBRID to pregain and use some 5-10db.

OK, I used an audio player to play the .ogg file. Its volume was actually LOUDER than the .mp3 file, so I no longer suspect BeSweet.

The problem must be caused by the multiplexing performed by VirtualDubMod.
The settings I am using are:
Video -> Direct Stream Copy
AVI -> Audio1 and 2 -> AVI audio, Direct Stream Copy
OGM -> Show Inputs -> Add .ogg file
OGM -> Save OGM

I don't know what could be causing the problem. Any ideas???
Thank you,
Maz

Sorry, but I am not sure how to do that.
In Job Control, I set Debug -> LogLevel -> 9 (all).
Then I ran the OGM creation job.

In the application directory, the file 'jobs.log' said:
09:27:54-PartSuccess, host 0, part 0, time=173s, speed=0 fps

That's all it said.

And the file 'VirtualDubMod.jobs' said:

// VirtualDub job list (Sylia script format)
// This is a program generated file -- edit at your own risk.
//
// $numjobs 1
//

// $job "Job 1"
// $input "C:\GuildFTPd\ftproot\RobinVideo.avi"
// $output "C:\GuildFTPd\ftproot\rhfinal.ogm"
// $state 2
// $start_time 01c31868 59c64fa0
// $end_time 01c31868 c40f5370
// $script

Is this what you were looking for?

nope it's not


open your ogm file in vd_mod

in former versions of vd_mod go to OGM => show inputs => there you'll find COMMENTS

in latest versions: => streams => video comments

OK, I did what you said and this is what I found:

ENCODED_USING=Made with BeSweet v1.5b16
ENCODER_URL=http://DSPguru.doom9.org
LWING_GAIN=0.055

That's all it said.
Thanks,
Maz
