I'm experiencing very low volume on my MacBook Pro (running Snow Leopard) while using Netflix Instant Play. All of my other video sites are working fine, and my computer's volume is set to full. I've had the same problem on a Leopard MacBook Pro. Are there fixes within Netflix or for my computer itself that I can try?

I assume you've checked the volume slider within the Netflix playback window itself (I believe it's independent of the computer's main volume control.) – Andrew Maiman Sep 20 '11 at 22:14
Yes. I've also checked the main volume control. – Christine Letts Sep 23 '11 at 17:34
Did you ever get this fixed? – newenglander Sep 18 '12 at 8:29

You could use the fine Mac program Audio Hijack Pro to amplify your entire system's volume while you watching Netflix, as described here.
