I tried to download this. Went to website and ran the commands in the terminal. I am not very good at this sort of thing since I normally just use the graphic interface. I got an error message about unmet dependencies so it didn't work. Anyway, does Cliqz have the Chrome apps? I need the Volume Master app because I have hearing problems so I am tied to Chrome and Chromium.


Frank I don't know if you are aware but in the LinuxMint Mate and I'm guessing the others as well if you right click on the volume icon in the bar at the bottom of the desktop and click on sound preferences you can actually set the volume all the way up to 150% which makes hard of hearing a bit easier and depending on how bad it is you may be able to not need to use the volume master app at all. (and the volume is up for everything not just your browser)
In addition to the  Volume Master Google app, I also have the Linux app Pulse Audio which goes up to 152% which comes with Mate and others. It helps but some videos are really low and I need Volume Master to help.

Hey it was a shot unfortunately not enough.

There's a few Distros that'll let you increase the volume over 100%. I've never found that I need to go more than 100% though.

Some distros come with Pulse Audio that goes up to 150%. Chrome and Chromium have an app Volume  Master that goes up to 600%. You have good hearing. I have a hearing problem so I need to use Volume Master.

In that case, wouldn't it be better to use one of these portable music boxes? I have a small one (a cube, no more than 6cm high) I got for around 15€ a few years back and it can get fairly loud. The things are portable and will sound better than standard laptop speakers or PC boxes while being also rather cheap.

But do they really play any louder than normal, or is it just a matter of labelling? Once an amplifier has reached maximum output it can not become louder whether you label it 100%, 1000%, or 1000000%.

This thread definitely needs a Spinal Tap quote

Marty: Does that mean it’s louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel: Well, it’s one louder, isn’t it? It’s not ten. You see, most, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten – you’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up – you’re on ten on your guitar, where can you go from there? Where?
Marty: I don’t know.
Nigel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty: Why don’t you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel: (pause) These go to eleven.
