I suspect you may have the usual problem of multiple different mixers,
all in series. Check:
- Application volume control
- Mixer (kmix/alsamixer-gui/pavucontrol): has application and master
and maybe more
- hardware buttons on the keyboard.
If that doesn't help, you may find it useful that VLC allows playback at
