Consistent Volume on mac?

How do I keep the volume on my mac consistent in apps other than itunes?

I like to stream movies on my TV thru my mac mini and often I have to adjust the volume 20 times during a movie because it gets so quiet I can't hear the dialogue and during action sequences, my ears start bleeding. I know in itunes theres a way to keep the volume consistent between songs but how to I do this through my chrome browser or general operating system?

Sounds like your playing movies mixed for 5.1 surround on a stereo speakers, which does exactly what you describe. Try and see if the movie you're playing has a stereo option.

I'm pretty sure this app doesn't exist, but it sounds like a good idea! You would have to take control of the global output levels, but Im pretty sure that osx will allow that. This blog talks about something similar.

The program mentioned in the blog post has a limiter, which is exactly what you want.
