    I've been using VLC for a while but on certain Songs, Bass crackles in the background no matter the settings.

    What do you queers use as an Audio Player on your PC?

    Whatever app pops up when I click a media file, faggot.

    Nah, for real though, I generally don't do much audio through my PC. Two things I'd say though: Generally it's not your app when issues like this occur; I'd look at your hardware.

    1: Did your driver change?
    2: Speakers, any cracks in the cones?

    Did you tweak settings in VLC or in Windows? Sometimes you adjust EQ type settings for one file and then everything else could sound like shit. Some times with headphones for example you can't have a preamp slider all the way up because it overdrives the master volume (whether that is another slider in windows sound settings or your speakers volume knob). VLC for example, it's slider goes beyond 100%

    Try dropping the files into your browser to see if they actually do sound different than VLC.

    Haven't used them in decades, not sure if still around but try winamp and foobar.

    Could also just try Windows media player. If you're using Win10, the groove music app.

    Hardware is fine. I use headphones. When I use headphones with my phone, there's no bass degeneration. Use them on my PC, and on certain songs it crackles slightly. Drivers for VLC are up to date. Also crackles using WMP, but WMP is shit so...dunno. Kind of odd.

    Will give it a go. I've heard good things.

    Tried the default settings and there's no degen, but the sound isn't level. It goes louder in some parts than others, as though there's no equalizer.

    Sound is perfect. Can't figure out how to get the player to stay on top of all other windows while watching a video though. Pretty sure that's no an option, as I've dug deep in the settings. Boo.

    Have you updated your motherboard's audio drivers lately?

    Saw this as I hadn't posted since I transferred over to media player classic as my default.

    I haven't updated them a damn long time. Might solve things. I'll give it a go.
