Can anyone think of a reason why (and a possible solution) the volume on my ITunes player is lower than other apps (like for example playing videos on youtube or music in grooveshark)?

Perhaps you're not aware that there is a volume slider on the iTunes window?

Also, Are you using an Equalizer? (Window -> Equalizer)

Change the preamp setting if you feel it is too quiet.

Hey, some people may just say "doh, I hadn't even noticed!" – ghoppe Apr 5 '11 at 22:14
@Pablo I added to my answer with another method to affect the volume in iTunes. – ghoppe Apr 5 '11 at 22:15
That did it! Thanks a lot @ghoppe – Pablo Fernandez Apr 5 '11 at 23:07
