  • (2023-11-01) Jerome Mabbayad (beastfighter1): This is now essential to my YouTube viewing experience now! It's especially useful on streams where there's unbalanced Discord audio. It brings everyone up to a more equal volume helping me understand what they're saying. Thanks so much for this!
  • (2023-09-26) Knackered Ocelot: Works exactly like the compressor I was using on twitch. I use an audio interface which isn't compatible with windows' device properties volume limiter so this is so helpful ^^
  • (2023-07-23) Ömer Aydın: It doesn't work at all. I installed this to prevent loud dialogues and musical inserts in talk shows where levels are unbalanced. It did not work. I doubt it's a compressor. Could be a pseudo app to collect data because it doesn't have a compressor GUI. You need knobs and sliders to adjust thresholds and ratios. It's like a car without a steering wheel.
  • (2023-07-20) Fabio Seminario: Works okay. Would be nice to have some options for the extension like being able to disable the 'V' hotkey.
  • (2023-07-17) Max: dosent work
  • (2023-07-15) Cole Clary: Works exactly as advertised.
  • (2023-06-28) blaze: It was good for a while, but started making videos pause after they start and not be able to un-pause.
  • (2023-06-13) J: Really useful extension! It really helps with both loud and quiet videos.
  • (2023-06-09) Valfaun: don't expect this to magically fix all of your audio woes on YouTube, but it definitely helps smooth out audio levels a little and noticably boosts quiet videos. plus it's a very small and light extension that requires no setup whatsoever (for better or worse), it's a one-click thing that tucks itself into the video player's control bar. no reason not to give it a try and hear for yourself
  • (2023-05-07) Zeno: I would like to change the activation hotkey
  • (2023-04-01) mou mobile: working great. but please add a hotkey for quick turning on/off. (like "V" or something) not every video need to be compressed. it's just a little bit bothersome when you watch different videos at once.
  • (2023-03-20) 1: Where are the settings? how do I evne know if its active?
  • (2023-03-17) Zachary Stand: I listen to podcasts and etc.. while working. Now I don't have to pick and choose what I can watch/listen too.
  • (2023-01-25) Hermis14: Works great so far! I've been annoyed by videos with extremely low sound volume.
  • (2023-01-23) Nibana: Does exactly what I want the way i want it with no extra feature and no audio artefacts
  • (2023-01-14) Arkadiusz Kochalski: EDIT: Sorry, It was a different YouTube extension causing the issue. Works perfectly now!
  • (2023-01-12) SkateSpace2012: Does do the job, no strange compression artifacts
  • (2023-01-09) Роман Шакиров: its a good tool for every person. Just save your ears in case.
  • (2023-01-09) Артём Кобзев: nice
  • (2022-12-30) F. O.: Just tested this on some loud videos (think explosive-type sounds) and it seemed to level-off the volume so its less harsh on the ears. This extension also raised the volume on very quiet videos as well.
  • (2022-12-29) Todd: Simple and awesome.
  • (2022-12-08) Vince R: Awesome little extension! Fixes videos where the audio is just too quiet even at max volume.
