      if you or a loved one has been affected by loud movie volume follow me on twitter @Gusbuckets

      1. Truth-Freedom

        I actually thought that you exaggerated a little. But that's just my opinion.

      2. Cypherus15

        THANK you for this.

      3. Kevin Malibu

        Bruh, this is REAL LIFE. I’m sick of that shit on Netflix 🤣🤣

      4. El Mehdi Boussalhi

        We want a .flac download for that twitty Conway album

    2. howlmao

      we not gonna talk about that catch

    3. Properly Gaming

      I swear. You can't watch movies without subtitles because their music and some effects blare over the dialogue

    4. Magnus Lysø

      It's called dynamic range. And it's art.

    5. here2watch08

      Even movies that were released in theaters have this problem when watched at home. Like, why?

    6. Ryko_Et _Irish

      I thought it was just my tv that was vroke

    7. Gurre Kurre

      how tf is this guy the ultimate *MR RELATABILITY*

    8. Shaghig Parseghian

      I want to know what gus's soundtrack at the end of every video he makes is... it's really nice and addictive :(

    9. Taco Joe

      So true.

    10. twothirty

      Again very amusing

    11. selftaughtinfection

      For real, so annoying, I can't believe lt's EVERY movie too. Not a single one that doesn't do this I swear.

    12. TheTalisman616

      Saints and soldiers is THE WORST. ugh

    13. Elise Davies

      I'm actually in the industry and this happens

    14. King Oreo

      Just finished watching Brightburn! This is so fucking accurate

    15. ZAds Azhad


    16. Hiro Bray

      Idk why but explosions and other loud sounds are always really quiet on my tv/stereo set (idk what does it). Like I get the music and dialogue bit, but for whatever reason my thing gets way too quiet whenever there is a sudden loud sound.

    17. Drake 883


    18. christina

      That’s why I always have subtitles.

    19. Thalia E

      So hurts it's accurate

    20. Gabriel N

      Step 1. Go to Google Step 2. Search this keyword: 123moviesdaily Step 3. Enjoy! how they mix the audio for home release movies I've never been lonely. I've been in a room -- I've felt suicidal. I've been depressed. I've felt awful -- awful beyond all -- but I never felt that one other person could enter that room and cure what was bothering me...or that any number of people could enter that room. In other words, loneliness is something I've never been bothered with because I've always had this terrible itch for solitude.

    21. Leo's Hi-Fi

      "Dynamic Range"

    22. SuperSash Bros

      Hot take: sound design in most modern films is terrible

    23. 10,000 Subs 1 Vid

      This guys a 1 man key & peele

    24. DamageIncM

      Actually inaccurate, but anyway.... Streaming-services like Netflix and Spotify suffer from level-compression. But while, sure, many physical home-video-releases do suffer from that as well, there are also plenty of great ones that are well-balanced and dynamic. - Maybe you've been getting the wrong ones if you think it's all the same. (Yea yea, I know it's a joke. But it's just highly inaccurate.)

    25. Wolf The Gentleman

      It's fucking EVERY Polish movie for last 20 years, both cinema and dvd version

    26. Rats

      It's so true and I'm so goddam sick of it. Bus Johns strikes again

    27. Barbb ONYX Ultra

      Smosh sent me

    28. Lane Mosser

      Just watched Avengers Endgame on blu-ray. This could not be more accurate.

    29. headfonic

      You have got the most impressive videos.

    30. Kenny

      Why though?!?! I have to set vlc audio settings special just to deal with this crap.

    31. lung butter

      It's true. Sux in an apt when you have to constantly turn the volume up and down.

    32. Neon Demon

      It's because most people have shit speakers istead of a good quality 5.1 or 7.1 surround setup.

    33. Pascual Didier

      Why would you say something so controversial yet so brave

    34. Monica

      No words 😂😂😂😂

    35. The Freaky Bean

      Hunger games be like

    36. Free Music

      What's the outro music ? Anyone?

    37. Lautaro Ortiz


    38. et de stellis

      Hahaha 💀

    39. Inflake

      Love how the outro song is so calming. It makes you completely forget about the chaos throughout the whole video

      1. Free Music

        Do you know the name of the outro music?

    40. Polkatown

      Actual footage of Diamond is Unbreakable audio mixing

    41. K- Town

      Besides the fact that this video is a masterpiece, I’m sad US-new didn’t even recommend it to me :(

    42. Sadie Peterson

      R u ok?

    43. Morgan P

      Anyone else get a roller coaster tycoon 3 vide from the outer music?...

      1. Free Music

        @Morgan P nevermind I found the song its "guess you could say"

      2. Morgan P

        @Free Music I don't know 🤷‍♂️

      3. Free Music

        Do you know the name of the outro music

    44. Spinks

      Absolutely Sir...or anyone you probably need a Fucking Drink. People are fucking do you know if the Next Fucking Person is Sane or not....

    45. Ian Ballesteros

      That was garbage

    46. Barnabus Wut

      They're just channeling their inner PS2 startup.

    47. Baby Hercules

      Sven is so beautiful yummmm❤️🥰

    48. Michael S

      Same situation with tv show reruns from the 50s-80s. You change the volume to hear the dialogue and then the commercials are louder then a garbage truck in your living room.

    49. Jack Angel

      This is the unfunniest content on youtube

    50. Adrian Pelaj

      Loudness equalization

    51. Poor Angus

      That’s why I keep the volume low and use subtitles.

    52. Erekai

      Sorry, I couldn't hear this video, I was deaf from a movie I just watched at home.

    53. Julianne Pyron

      Gus I had a dream that we were dating and have since had a crush on you...hmu man

    54. Parmpreet Gill

      Interstellar in a nut shell

    55. Kirk House

      Only solution I've found. Get a surround setup with a good center channel. Turn up the center channel volume only. Turn up the treble, turn down the base. If your receive has it, turn on the dynamic range compression. Or, if you don't have a receiver/speakers, check in your tv menu for "voice" audio modes which should help.

    56. Michael Smith

      How old are you? You could be 23, you could be 32

    57. Jennifer Baez

      Looks like Gus has irish armour (when you drink and your face and chest get all red)

    58. Danzews

      Gus i have that same shirt! from walmart for 4th of july!

    59. whitefeather

      You need to do one on.. How many times Disney advertises Disney on one of its own bluray before you can watch the damn movie. At least 3.

    60. The Epic Oshawott

      Can you please stop being so accurate, this pains me

    61. Danielle Pallares

      Hey Gus so It's my boyfriends birthday today and literally the only thing he wants is for you to sing him happy birthday, not even the whole song just like "hap birf"

    62. Cassie

      been called one of the greatest superhero movies of all time.

      1. Cassie

        This is the only reason people didn't like Watchmen, it's impossible to hear the dialogue so you don't even know what's going on, if they mixed the audio properly it would've

    64. Puppet lover

      Why did i fucking subscribe to this virtue signalling motherfucker again?

      1. less kiss

        i just watched the different version of tokyo drift... its terrible

    65. Angel

      damn cool outro music, is it yours? what chords are those?

      1. less kiss

        Hey gus when is the postmates video going to be released?

    66. Need you now


      1. Puppet lover

        Micheal Bay with the explosions is a good example

    67. Frida M.

      ...IM I RIGHT! *smug face

    68. Willaim R. Kirkland

      Boys, this is just plain stupid. No BS.

      1. Need you now

        When in doubt, go to STOUT

    69. Jinxfire

      I fixed the volume issue by changing my audio to 2.1 instead of 5.1 which is default on Netflix. Most people have 2.1 speaker systems but play 5.1, thus causing the loud background noise.
