I would suggest trying the Play menu and then clicking "Audio and language tracks". But other than that, I'm not sure. VLC is an extremely versatile player, leaps and bounds above WMP. It may be likely that you cannot change this is WMP. Now you're seeing the video as it should be. Some video players mess with the video and you don't get what you truly expect, either too bright/washed out or too dull/dark.

With MPC you get all the stuff you were intended to get, not much if any post processing. You could try installing a codec pack like CCCP, and use Media Player Classic, that should solve all your problems. A number of people recommended Media Player Classic (MPC).

I installed it and it worked fine. If anyone knows another 3rd party plugin for WMP that is an alternative to Morgan Stream Switcher and runs with Vista and WMP 11, I would appreciate hearing about it. Otherwise, I will just use MPC for my videos with multiple audio tracks.

If you say, No. I didn't. You have to configure first your computer for music playback. Many of us are often anticipated that digital audio never degrade the audio. It is important to realize that digital audio sources like computers, CD & DVD transports and other digital media services that can cause if improperly configured and the effect will be distortion.

I know after reading my first paragraph, you will think how can configure it? Am I right? Before you go to the next step, I recommend and you should read the whole thing about the specific operating system and media player you are playing. Though, you can practice these general procedures or guidelines to arise the performance of audio into the highest level of playback system of your PC or laptop.
First, must keep the 100% volume controls. Second, you should have sample rate to set the audio if you're using iTunes or Mac OS X. As you mentioned that you like to use the windows media player, I suggest to set up is Quick Time for Windows and retain 24-bit setting not 16-bit audio.
Afterwards, you have to turn-off the OS sounds and plug-ins and retain all DSP. And before I forgot, i highly suggested to disabled the following plug-ins and audio DSP likes Surround sound simulations, bass boost and sound enhancer. Hope I can help you about your dilemma. Have fun!
