VLC’s Dynamic Range Compression Starter Settings


Here’s the Dynamic Range Compression settings to make your movie more fluid, no sudden loud sound but still audible dialogs.

RMS/Peak 0
Attack 50 ms
Release 300 ms
Threshold -20 dB
Ratio 20.0 : 1
Knee Radius 1.0 dB
Makeup Gain 12.0 dB

We can’t change the settings with exact values, so just move the slider at least close to the values.

Slider can be precisely moved by pressing keyboard arrow up and down after clicking on  the slider. Thanks, Austin!
