Default Youtube volume very low..

Well, wanted to watch some youtube movies, but the volume is very low (compared to the rest of the pc.) the volume in the youtube window is set to max, so it the pc's volume. is there some sound volume regulation in internet explorer itself?

edit: I forgot to mention, the 'click' sound you get when you click soemthing (a link etc) is pretty loud now. but the movies volume is fairly low.

this is soo annoying. :|

On Vista and onwards Microsoft introduced individual mixers for appliations; if you want to adjust the volume, right click on the volume icon on the task bar and select "Open Volume Mixer", something like zis should appear:

For me the volume control for firefox only shows up if something in firefox is actually playing a sound, otherwise it isn't there.

Also, if you have a similar problem take this approach:
Trace the sound source to your ears.
(ex. Video --> Video Volume --> In-Computer Volume --> Speaker Volume --> Headphone Volume --> Ears
