Way 1: Edit JavaScript in One Browser

The fist way about how to make YouTube louder is by editing JavaScript in one browser. How to do that? The whole process of editing JavaScript is quite easy:

Step 1: Open your browser. Here I take Google Chrome for example.

Step 2: Click the three vertical dots icon in the upper-right corner and then select More tools > Developer tools.

Step 3: You will see a page appear on the right side of the current page. Navigate to the Console tab.

Step 4: Paste the following codes after the symbol “>” under the Console tab and press the Enter key to run these codes.

var videoElement = document.querySelector(“video”)

var audioCtx = new AudioContext()

var source = audioCtx.createMediaElementSource(videoElement)

var gainNode = audioCtx.createGain()

gainNode.gain.value = 2 // double the volume



YouTube videos should immediately become louder after you run these codes. If you want to make YouTube videos even louder, you should replace the number in the gainNode.gain.value = 2 // double the volume with higher values. You can also decrease the video volume by switching the number to 0.8 or 0.5.

The volume will go back to normal if you refresh the web page or open another YouTube video. So, to increase volume of another YouTube video, you should run these codes again.

Way 2: Try an Online YouTube Volume Booster

To increase the volume of local YouTube videos (click here to know how to save YouTube videos), you can try VideoLouder. VideoLounder is a free online service that allows you to increase the volume of video files online without re-encoding the video files. The video size should be smaller than 500MB.

Step 1: Go to the official website of VideoLouder.

Step 2: Click the Browser option to load the downloaded YouTube video. Choose the Increase volume option and then select decibels you want to increase.
