Boost low volume in XBMC

AC3 encoded movies usually have very low volume. To fix this edit the /usr/share/xbmc/system/advancedsettings.xml file and add this audio ac3downmixgain parameter inside the <advancedsettings>...</advancedsettings> tags:

<advancedsettings>
  ...
  <audio>
    <ac3downmixgain>24.0</ac3downmixgain>
  </audio>
</advancedsettings>

It’s default value is 12.0 so change it until it fits the volume you want and beware because althougt the option says ac3downmixgain it boosts the volume for ALL codecs.
