I have the latest version of Apple TV, iPad, and Keynote. We use it to project video via AirPlay on an Apple TV to projectors, and audio from the optical system of the apple TV to an external sound system.


My problem is that when I play video files through the included Photo app on the iPad, the volume is at one level. Perfectly set.

When I embed that same video in a Keynote presentation, it becomes super quiet (over half the volume). The QuickTime inscpector in keynote has it at volume level 10 (max), and I just can't figure out what is going on. Why the different levels?

The iPad volume level is not changed. The change occurs between the two ways of playing the video file.


Any ideas on what is going on and how I can fix this issue? I don't want to make two versions of the movie- one with normal sound, and one with super amplified sound just for keynote presentations.




Thanks in advance.
