Lets say i go to http://www.imdb.com/ and then want to watch all the new trailers for upcoming movies, well the movie play nice, but the dang sound is going to 100% every time, and i do really not like it that high, im more a 20% of a guy, so every time i have to go in and set the sound to 20% or so, and then next movie the same shit again every time.

So watching 20 movie gets annoying in a hurry.

Hi Martin,

Based on your message I believe you're referring to the automated volume setting within IMDb videos, I've attached a screenshot below.  This volume setting is automatic and cannot be adjusted within the site settings at this time.

I tested this out and viewed multiple trailers and found that when I changed the volume for one, it still played the next at 100% volume.

To help with this, I recommend changing the volume on your device since most devices should save your individual settings for volume.

Suggestion for a future version of the player:  If possible, use a session cookie to temporarily store and recall the volume level that the user has set?

(If the player software is developed by a separate company, please consider forwarding this suggestion to them?)

@Ava yeah that's the volume :)
And yeah i found out by going to the volume Miser, i could change the Firefox only down to around 5-10% of the normal volume i use on desktop, that way when i watch some thing in like Media player or VLC, the volume is back at my normal settings, and only the firefox will then play a lover volume.
Only drawback is then if i watch a YouTube movie i then have to go and change it again, but thats still way better then getting blown away with the sound when i watch trailers, since i ALWAYS use headsets, so the sound is kinda intense some times :)

I propose that this is a problem, or at least a poor design. This has bugged me for a while and I just finally got the gumption to see if anybody else has reported it. Other websites, like YouTube, don't reset the volume to 100% like IMDb. Asking me to set the volume of the device is woefully inadequate as the OP reported. This forces me to raise the volume for media that properly remembers my settings. Thus, as a consumer this is still a convenience problem.

It seems that this is an ongoing issue that the website is too lazy to take seriously... Oh well.
