Alex welcome to the group.
Anyone going to see the new Jurassic Park movie when it comes out?
I have tickets, if that counts. I'd invite you to come, but I think the plane ticket might be a little more expensive than the movie ticket.
The Avengers movie is coming out in a few weeks - anyone have plans to see this movie?
Dulce Rubio welcome to the group.
Plinius welcome to the group.
Hmm, the volume that various YouTubers output at is definitely inconsistent. If I'm watching a playlist made up of various, random videos, it can be a pain in the ass balancing it against other audio sources on my computer. I usually watch YouTube while playing a game of some sort on the other screen, since I have a dual monitor setup on my desktop computer, including the television, so turning the main volume up or down isn't a solution. Of course usually, I'll be watching a series put out by one YouTuber, for a couple of hours, so the volume will be fairly consistent.
And yeah, I do have my desktop hooked up to the surround sound system, but even on my laptop, with the external speakers I have hooked up or with headphones, I don't have that issue. Not sure. Has your hearing just gone that badly?
Do you mean that the videos are too dark, relative to other things on your computer? I haven't noticed that at all. Have you used a gamma adjustment tool to adjust the brightness on your monitor or the gamma slider in your video settings?
I notice YouTube leaves the audio slider where I put it, for any other video I watch, but only most of the time.
I usually check the slider on each video I watch because most YouTube videos have a maximum volume that is still too low, whether I use the computer speaker or earphones.
I've been saying for 20 years that I'm going to connect my computer to my movie system to get as much volume as I want, but it doesn't get done.
Another problem I have with YouTube videos, is many of them are much too dark.
It wasn't anything that anyone did. It's just a glitch that YouTube throws, from time to time, for some reason.
Just like with any other tech support issue. Do we know why certain glitches happen, even when it happens in the same situation when the user does a certain thing? Sometimes, but usually not. The best explanation for "Why?" that we get for most issues is, "Yeah, that program screws this up sometimes. No idea why. When it does that, you just do this, and it clears the error."
@Joseph &Cat: Something worked! I don't understand how the slider got all the way over to the left, but it did. (I'm not the only one who uses this computer....) Anyway, as a Thank You, here's one of my favorite pieces of music....I hope you enjoy jazz:
The first time I heard this, I was driving home from work at the Cat Hotel, late at night, and I nearly stopped the car in the middle of the street so I could get out and dance...
