I came across this gem while watching a YouTube video that wasn’t recorded loud enough. My speakers are cranked to the top, and the player is at Max volume? What to do? I did a Google search, and came up with this solution.
You just open VLC media player. Download it if you don’t have it. Then click MEDIA then OPEN NETWORK STREAM.. and paste the URL into it. Now the Video is under VLC’s control, and you can do lots of things to it, including pump up the volume.
Great stuff! I’d had this problem on lots of videos that had the audio set too low.
Full screen mode is much better too.
