Wondering how to tweak decode brightness/contrast/levels on VirtualDub

Hey all!

Having trouble with some video I'm importing into VirtualDub created on a DVD recorder. It's a VOB and I'm using fccHandler's MPEG plugin to read the file. In the preview window which is an overlay with hardware decoding the video looks fine, but in the output window where software decoding is used, the video is darker. I can use virtualdub filters to increase the brightness, but at that point the dark end of the spectrum has already been lost, and along with it, all detail in any dark scenes. Is there any way for me to tweak the settings for the software MPEG decoder so it behaves more like the hardware decoder and doesn't lose the darks? If not, are there settings stored in the .VOB file I could mess with that might also fix the problem, and if so, where are they stored?
