VLC increase volume over 200%

I want to raise the volume in VLC over 200%.

I have a video file with very low volume on the audio track. I want to play this specific file with increased volume.

I found a solution bestpctips.com. They suggest:

Click in the video and use the scroll wheel of your mouse to increase the volume to up to 400%.

And to increase it further you can use this small workaround of which I though earlier:

Start the equalizer via a button or via “Tools”/”Effects and Filters”. Set the preamplifier to 20dB. (it’s the first bar) Activate the graphic equalizer. Set the volume to 200%.

It’s not the perfect solution. And maybe you can make it even better if you increase the max amplifier setting of 20dB to a high value in the settings. But at least its an easy to activate work-around.

Please comment if you know how to get rid of the 400% maximum.

Later on I found the tip also on kioskea.net. Nuvvenuvve knows you can also use CTRL + UP-Arrow for increasing the volume past the factor 2.

    thanks I needed the Ctrl + up arrow!! I discovered the scroll wheel first too though its on separate mouse I rarely use…

    VLC should make this clearer… or raise range 0-300% or similar…
