Audio normalization on output - save my speakers and headphones!

ge flag

Is there a program or command line setting that will boost quiet content on Firefox while also lowering loud volume to a consistent level?

Background: We are running multiple laptops with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (basic default apps install) and I am looking for a setting or application that will regulate the output of volume. Anyone who has let YouTube autoplay while cooking/working/etc will notice that some content is too quiet and some videos are way too loud.

Looking into posts on this topic, the age pre-dates the popularity of deafening TikTok/YouTube shorts. Other attempts to search the topic seems to assume I am creating content, which I am not.

Does anyone have recommendations for this family to save our tiny laptop speakers and headphones? Thank you, in advance! (First time poster)

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
