Loudness normalization for mp4 videos
:: This drag-n-drop script for windows uses ffmpeg's loudnorm
:: filter to correct the perceived loudness (not technical loudness)
:: of mp4 videos without video reencoding or changing metadata.
:: This will make the audio of your videos more even and you won't
:: have to adjust playback volume when watching.
:: loudness-part from
