Media streaming is becoming a large part of everyone’s life now. YouTube is the world’s largest community-based video streaming platform. But at times, the volume of these YouTube videos that are being streamed is not enough. Even with the volume of the computer and the YouTube player being toggled to be the highest, sometimes, the audio is not audible. This can be fixed by a number of extensions that can be installed on your computer. These extensions are available especially on web browsers powered by the Chromium engine or Mozilla Firefox.
Increase YouTube Volume using the DOM console
Some of the advantages of using this method over the use of extensions are as follows:
- This method will help bypass any restrictions on a corporate level to the users.
- It will work on any PC platform.
- It does not require tampering of the computer’s integrity in any manner.
- This method does not carry any hassle.
Following this method is fairly simple.
You need to load the YouTube video streaming page first.
Now, hit the F12 button on your keyboard to launch Developer Tools. Navigate to the tab called Console.
In the command line area of the Console tab, execute the following command by copying and pasting it:
document.getElementsByClassName("video-stream").volume = 0.5; //50%
As you do this, you will suddenly notice an increase in the volume of the YouTube video that was being played in the background.
In the code given above, the 0.5 denotes a 50% increase in the volume and can be set respectively in order to boost the volume of the YouTube video being played.
Trust this works for you!
