2. How to Increase the Sound on a Prerecorded Video Online

VideoLouder is a volume increaser for your videos that works online. It is accessible from any browser and completely free to use. VideoLouder is incredibly simple. You only have to upload a file, tweak a couple of parameters, and download the result.

3. How to Increase the Volume of a Video on iPhone

iPhone users can try out Video Volume Booster. It is a simple video sound amplifier that can increase the overall volume of a video. But the free version has little to offer beyond that. Paid users can enjoy the luxury of features like voice processing. This feature helps make the speaker’s speech louder or turn down a vocal track in a song for you to sing along. Let’s see how to increase the volume of a video file with this iOS app:

  1. Install the app. Get the Video Volume Booster from the App Store. Open the app once it is ready to run.
  2. Open the needed video. Tap the Open File button and navigate to the clip you want to make louder.
  3. Turn the volume up. A slider will appear. Move it to the right to increase the volume. Then tap the Apply button.

4. How to Boost the Video Volume on Android

If you are not an iPhone user, try Video Volume Booster for Android.

The downside is that the free version of this Android volume booster doesn’t process videos longer than 30 seconds. But for social media reels and stories, this might do. Let’s see how to use the video audio booster for Android:

  1. Get the app on your device. Download the volume booster from Google Play. When the installation is done, start the app.
  2. Open your video in the program. Tap the Folder icon and find the needed clip in your media gallery.
  3. Turn the volume up. A slider will appear on the screen. To increase the volume, move it to the right. Tap the Apply button and let the app do the processing.

5. How to Make a Video Louder with Adobe Premiere

If you have access to better hardware, why not try using more powerful software for video editing? Adobe Premiere Pro is renowned and beloved for its immense depth. It can perform any trick you can think of – chroma-key, color correction, audio processing, and much more.

However, it aims at a more hardcore audience. If you have no editing needs other than raising the volume, it might be better to find an easier solution. But if you already have this program or want to get the most out of video editing, let’s give it a shot! You can also learn more about volume control from this guide. Here’s how to make a quiet video louder in Adobe Premiere:

  1. Open your video. Upload your video file in whichever way you like. Go to File > Import and find a clip via the file browser or drag it to the project panel.
  2. Select audio clips. Pick a clip (or clips) from the clipboard you want to work on with the Selection Tool.
  3. Adjust the gain level. The program displays audio and video tracks of your clip separately. Right-click the audio and choose Audio Gain. In the opened menu, pick Adjust Gain by and enter a dB value. A positive number will make the clips louder. Then click Ok. Alternatively, you can move the white line over the audio track upwards to raise the volume.
  4. Save the result. When done, go to the File menu, select Export > Media, and save your new clip. You can export your file in AVI, FLV, MOV, MP4, HEVC, and a ton of other formats.
