    The ridiculously low audio level seems to be a characteristic of all the Town’s youTube videos. We have a fine sound system in Town Hall. Does anyone know why the audio is so poor on the Town’s youTube videos? Maybe the Tech Task Force ought to make a recommendation about this…

      Do we really need a task force to explain how to properly encode video? It’s a mystery to me why the quality control is not better on this important program.

        I’ll volunteer to chair the task force.

        My recommendation is to find the gain control on the recording equipment. If it’s a knob, turn it clockwise; if it’s a slider, push it in an upward direction.
