MX Player is one of the most patronized video player on the Play Store. The app has been in existence for more than 8 years, and it has a huge fan base. MX Player is the goto app for smartphone users that loved watching movies on their phone. It has various features for immersive viewing experience and supports almost all video and audio formats. Apart from being a video player, it can also be used as an audio player.
Today, I will be sharing how Android users can boost the audio volume by 200% when watching video on MX Player. This will increase the audio volume of the video drastically and make the sound twice as loud as before, which will be of great benefit to Android phones with tiny speakers or with poor audio optimization.
By default, when watching a video on MX Player the audio volume is set to be in sync with the phone media volume. This means, when you lower or increase the volume on MX Player you are controlling your Android phone media volume. So basically, the loudness of the audio of the video playing is not determined by MX Player but by your phone media volume.
If the speaker of your phone is not loud, then the audio volume will definitely be poor when watching video or listening to music on your phone irrespective of the player you used. MX Player have 15 audio volume steps that can be controlled by pressing the volume buttons of the phone or by swiping the right area of the screen during video playback.
