One good thing about the VLC players before version 2.1.1 was that the volume can be raised very high to 200% which makes it easier for you to watch and enjoy your movies in a noisy environment without using headset but video LAN organization for reasons best known to them decided to remove this feature right from the version 2.1.1 and dropped its maximum volume to 125%.
A lot of people have decided to stick with the older VLC player versions as a result of the low volume in the recent version but i have found a way to increase the maximum volume of the recent version of the VLC player to 200% or 300%.

Disclaimer: Please take note that I will not be responsible if your speaker(s) is damaged or affected as a result of the high volume because I have heard of such cases in recent times where VLC has damaged laptop speakers that are not too strong.
1. Open your VLC player and click on TOOLS and select PREFERENCES
2. Select ALL under show settings
3. Expand MAIN INTERFACES on the left hand panel and select QT
4. Scroll down to the buttom at your right hand side and change the maximum volume
