How to Increase Volume of a Video or Audio with Very Low Voice

It need not record it again if you have a video with very low volume

You probably had a video with a low voice on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, etc., and you might record it once you met this problem before. I met this issue many times, and I used to record it. But once I recorded a video lecture with over 40 minute for a group of students the next day. For me, it is not so easy to create a video at home because two kids are usually around. In the following, I show you how to increase the low-voice video using an open source tools.
