Is your video a little too quiet? This has probably happened because you were too far from the sound source, or you accidentally covered the microphone on your camera. No matter why it happened, you can still fix it if you increase the video volume.
There are several approaches for how to make a video louder: you can use a desktop program or, if your video is stored on a smartphone, get an app for iPhone or Android. Movavi has software for all these situations. Download the Movavi video sound booster for your computer or mobile device and adjust the audio volume of your videos in just a few short steps.
