Volume Controller

Description from extension meta

HTML5 video and audio volume controller

Image from store Volume Controller
Description from store Most of the websites allows us to stream/play videos, but plays at high volume(100%) which is annoying and immediately the user starts searching for volume adjuster. This extension helps you to get rid of those annoying high volumes and it works similar to your system-level volume manager, which manages for all chrome tabs you are working on. Changelog: v0.4 - Configure volume step size v0.3 - Keyboard shortcuts to increase/decrease/mute volume (see settings page for instructions) Features: - Play audio/video media with saved volume settings. - Remembers previously saved volume level (even after cache clear/reboot). This helps to avoid checking for volume level while opening the chrome app freshly. - A simple controller which controls volume of a video playing in any tab/window while you're working on other tab/window. It helps you to get rid of high volume *auto-play* videos while browsing facebook, twitter, web.whatsapp, youtube and any other streaming sites (html5 videos).

  • (2020-07-01) Danil Andryushin: A good extension that lets you watch YouTube videos at the original volume! Not without bugs, of course, but the extension does its job. I recommend that everyone use it. The author of this extension is a great man.

  • (2020-03-09) Jamleck Muriuki: It stopped working with YouTube
  • (2020-02-10) Brian Sapient: This worked as advertised until the last Chrome update. Now the slider knob is gone, the volume always says it is on 10% and all it can do is mute the tab.
  • (2020-01-26) Arphanne's Vibes: muito bom super recomendo
  • (2019-10-20) Continental Nobleman: Excellent volume crontrol, exctly what I was looking for with the YouTube, which has this tiny ittle volume indicator and so fussy to adjust. With the progam her it gives a full sized slider that is easy to see and operate. Wish I had found this years ago. Rgds and good luck to dev.

  • (2019-04-19) yrLDtLnt: Hope for improvement 1.Hopes to add shortcuts can be used in the background, such as I watch the video full-screen would not be affected. 2.Enable extensions on YouTube, but don't change the volume UI of YouTube 3.After clicking on the extension icon, you can change the volume with the mouse wheel.
  • (2019-02-14) Andrey: omg, where you were before? that is exactly what i always needed
  • (2019-02-07) Adriano Garcez: I can't use a KS to increase/decrease volume - not directly, at least.
  • (2018-09-04) Stan Moore: no good
  • (2018-07-17) Станислав Ганев: works nicely with 9gag :)
  • (2018-07-15) { }: No matter how much I increased or decreased the volume, it didn't change at all. Just seems like an extension only there for looks, doesn't actually do anything.
  • (2018-06-24) Gage Adrian: Working amazingly. I love it. Has a toggle for whether to modify youtube or not, which is super nice.
  • (2018-06-03) Vincent Vega: Works as described - keeps the last set volume on videos. Could not get the keyboard shortcuts working, though.
  • (2018-05-03) pyoxic2010: The only best extension to do exactly what it takes, thank you!
  • (2018-04-04) \ AdoskaCZ /: very nice, works perfectly!

  • (2020-08-16, v:0.4.1) Ni Ndogo: Volume defaults to 10%
    Hi, In the latest (I think version 0.4) There are 2 problems: a. I can not see the volume slider any more. b. It defaults to 10% volume. It can not be lower. I normally leave it at 0% and then control the volume on the video. This is no longer possible. When I set the video to mute (clicking the speaker icon till it goes mute) the next tab I open with instant playing video still has audio.
  • (2020-06-03, v:0.4.1) Karen Delezenski: My volumn
    My volumn is almost gone, but the bar is all the way up full. I assume there is another, I am not tech savy, but I would need easy step by step simple explanations. Thank you.
  • (2020-04-30, v:0.4.1) Hampri Topan: No volume slide bar and it locked on 10%
    How to change volume settings? by default everytime i play videos, it start on 10%, on previous version it have volume slide bar to adjust it.

    can you unblock my app
  • (2019-08-23, v:0.4.1) Lee Hodsdon: Add option to change toolbar icon from black to white
    Windows 10 and/or apps are now adopting a dark theme to be easier of users' eyes (instead of glaring a mostly white screen at them). Alas, this means your dark toolbar icon disappears in the dark toolbar. Add an option to switch between black or white for your toolbar icon's color. Thanks.
  • (2019-05-07, v:0.4.1) Lee Hodsdon: Found a site with HTML5 video whose volume is unaffected by this extension.
    Went to https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-10-tip-more-hibernation-secrets-to-save-time-and-disk-space/. They have an embedded video at the bottom of their web page. It plays at full volume, not at the 10% configured in this extension. I have Flash disabled in Chrome, so it is not the case where the video is Flash that this extension won't control. However, I'm not sure this embedded video uses HTML5. Could be a Javascripted player is used. There are many sites that use Javascripted players, so is this extension effective with those (to prevent them blaring noise into your face and perhaps so loud as to damage your speakers)? When I go to Youtube, this extension works. When I right-click on a Youtube video, the HTML5 <video> play controls appears. However, at the ZDnet site, right-clicking on their video does not show the HTML5 <video> play controls hence why I suspect they are using a Javascripted player for which this extension is ineffective.
  • (2019-04-27, v:0.4.1) pyoxic2010: Steam store video player
    Hi, your addon does not mute the Steam store's video player and it charges with the highest volume! Can you fix it please?
  • (2018-10-26, v:0.4.1) Change icon color in incognito mode
    Currently when in in-cognito mode or when using a dark theme, the icon is still black on a dark background, chrome extensions support tints (https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/themes#tints) so that would be a nice workaround
  • (2018-08-10, v:0.4.1) Metal Quintessence: Customization
    Hello, I've been using the extension for quite some time now and I find it rly useful, even essential in some cases f.e. especially with sites like Instagram where vids are always cranked @ 100% and often your ears suffer severe punishment. But I find it kinda conflicting with other sites where you'd either want the volume to be set to a different level. And popping the extension to change volume for each site every time can be a bit of a drag. I guess a possible solution could be to either add a Whitelist/Blacklist and/or some other functionality like the ability to control the Volume directly through the mouse scroll wheel or with a keyboard shortcut or kb+mouse wheel combo if necessary.
  • (2018-01-31, v:0.4.1) Nupur Jain: Does not work with headphones
    Hi. This seems to work just fine when I'm listening directly from my computer's speakers. However, when I connect headphones/earphones and turn the volume down, it becomes softer for a second before jumping back to the highest volume. Basically, there's no change in the volume level even when I move the slider. I generally listen to music at a low volume while studying, so this creates a problem for me. What should I do?
  • (2018-01-09, v:0.4.1) John De Leon: Instagram
    Will it control the volume on Instagram?
  • (2017-10-31, v:0.4.1) Joseph Soldis: Tech Question
    So I was searching for a fix to allow me to set different volumes for each Chrome window open. For example, I play Music on Pandora at a low volume. But I may want to hear my voip phone through my computer or hear a voice message or play a You Tube video louder than the soft background music. I thought you were the fix. Am I doing something wrong? It still seems to operate just like the natural volume mixers in that all Chrome windows are at the same volume. So I am not seeing how this controller is any different than the native windows 10 volume that allows you to set the volume for all Chrome Windows different than other devices. I am hopeful I just have it wrong and you have the fix (or will be developing one)! Thanks

    love it! Is it possible to maybe create one for Firefox ver 57+ too?
