I just faced some problems with You Tube videos on Ubuntu… Some didn’t have enough volume. Even though I took the system speaker dial to 100%, still it’s not enough. If it happens while playing a video on VLC, we can easily increase the volume to 200% within the media player. But what if we are not on VLC? What if we are using a different media player or watching an online video?
Its simple, you can simply boost your volume through system settings. Here’s how to do it :
- Open the dash and type “Sound”. Select the “Sound” menu item (Not Sound Recorder).
- That’s the sound settings (Also accessible through Settings > Sound) in Ubuntu. To increase the volume, check the volume control at the bottom. Here, you have the ability to increase the volume beyond 100%!
Now, use it wisely! Don’t increase your volume too much if you have a fully functional brain behind that thick skull! I’m serious!
