Here in this post, let me share with you some quick tips about the best media player i.e. vlc player. Just launch vlc and then go to tools – preferences and observe the various options and configurations displayed. Adjust any of those as per your requirement.
How to make vlc player always remember the previously set volume settings ?
VLC media player has a unique capability to increase the volume of the sound by 400 % which is really great to hear such files which have low volume. Some people like to listen to loud while some prefer soft. But when you open any file in vlc player, the volume is automatically set to 100 % generally. VlC doesn’t remember your volume setting but you can make it remember your volume setting by the given method.
Just go to tools – preferences – Audio – Select “Keep audio level between sessions”
Otherwise, you may want to set the default volume level so that each time vlc starts, it plays your file at the default level you have set.
