Sets whether audio auto-normalization is ON or OFF

Sender-Side Option! (&push)


  • &agc

  • &ag


Example: &autogain=1



audio auto-normalization off


audio auto-normalization On


Audio auto-normalization is ON by default in VDO.Ninja.

You can turn off auto-normalization by adding &autogain=0 to a source link (guest). If you are using &proaudio, auto-normalization gets turned off. You can enable it again with &proaudio&autogain=1.

You can also switch it on or off via the audio settings. If you want the guests to be able to change the audio settings by themselves, use &mediasettings on the guests' link, as per default only the director can change the audio settings of the guests.

Your browser will try to keep optimum audio levels.

Known issues with auto-gain

Some microphones or devices with software-based gain controls can have problems with auto-gain. The microphone volume might go to high, causing clipping, for example, or it might interfere with the gain of other applications.

If using a Chromium-based browser, like Chrome, Edge or Brave, you can either disable auto-gain or you can go into your browser's settings and disable the browser from being able to control the device's input volume. The link to this option is here: chrome://flags/#enable-webrtc-allow-input-volume-adjustment (as of March 2024 at least) Please note that this issue seems to be a Chromium-related issue, and it is not VDO.Ninja specific. If you do disable auto-gain within VDO.Ninja, the option to manually increase your gain is still normally available also.
