Verge embedded video player: volume seems very low

Does anyone else find the volume levels for videos played through the embedded player on The Verge very quiet?

I typically have to raise my computer's volume a few notches to hear the audio properly, and have to lower it again when I listen to music, or videos on any other site.

I suppose I could just be going to deaf... or perhaps The Verge just hasn't adopted TV-advert level volume out of courtesy to its audience :-)
