Does anyone know how I should set the equalizer settings in the android VLC app so the audio it plays back sounds similar to the android YouTube app?
I have tried all the pre-set equalizer settings, and none of them make the audio sound similar to the audio from YouTube videos.
My test example is audio I extracted from a video advertised as free to use. I used youtube-dl to extract the audio at the highest possible settings.
It seems the difference I am hearing in the audio is because the audio is not as loud when playing back from YouTube, and is louder when playing back from VLC. This seems to cause distortions via my headphones.
I have tried using vorbisgain on Linux to try to normalize the vorbis extracted audio from the YouTube video, but I get a message saying that the file I am trying to normalize is not a vorbis file.
The only other option is opus audio files. These files also have the same issue, so will need to be normalized to get them to the same volume level as the YouTube app. How do I achieve the same normalization which is outputed by the YouTube app? Can VLC apply normalization? If not, any idea why the vorbis files extracted from the YouTube video files are not recognized for vorbis files. Or, is it possible to normalize opus files?
It seems I meant replayGain instead of normalization. With this update in mind, how do I replayGain the vorbis files from YouTube? I have tried using the approach in update 2, but apparently the vorbis files from YouTube are not recognized as vorbis files.
