I know sometimes during an important live stream on Youtube there could be unexpected problems with volume, it might be hard to hear and it is frustrating.

But there are 2 easy solutions to fix this:

  1. If you use chrome browser, just install this extension to boost volume:

easy to use once it is installed, you just click on the extension icon on the top right and slide volume up.

2. I wrote a small javascript code that could be pasted to browser console and after you press Enter it will increase volume 5 times:

var myVideoElement = document.querySelector('video');
var audioCtx = new AudioContext();
var source = audioCtx.createMediaElementSource(myVideoElement);
var gainNode = audioCtx.createGain();
gainNode.gain.value = 5;


Hope this helps! :)
