I listened to Paul Frields 2008 fudcon talk fron an ogg I downloaded
[1] from "Fedora TV" Miro channel [2].
The audio is really hard to listen because it is recorded far from the
speaker (my conclusion) so I can hear Paul barely. To hear him well I
need to turn on the volume really high but then my eardrums almost
exploded when I heard first applause because that is much, much, much

To fix that is trivial and here is how I did it.

1. I opened the ogg in audacity
2. selected the whole track
3. under Effect I choose "Leveller" and applied to on the "Hardest" setting.
4. listened to the output
5. again applied "Leveller" with hardest setting
6. exported the audio.

Please listen and compare my version [3] with one on Miro site.

if you can connect me with people uploading audio I can give them tips
like this on how to enhance audio for better quality.
