    I recently found an old MacBook Pro (2008) of mine, formatted it and installed Yosemite.

    Primary use: watching movies while working out.
    Problem: the volume output isn't high enough. Dialogue is rather hard to follow.

    That's why I was wondering if there's a plug-in of some kind that'll let you boost the system audio output past the standard 100%? Kinda like VLC does in-app..?

    Before you ask: "why don't you just use VLC then?"
    -> I do ... for downloaded content, but also watch Netflix and other in-browser VOD content.


    Thanks in advance

    I use a program called Kodi (formerly called XBMC) which has a separate audio output level option. I can raise the volume gain level of a video separate from the system volume level. Check it out. A simple web search will find you the website.

    Thank you for the suggestion,
    but while I'm already familiar with Kodi,
    this doesn't allow me to raise the volume level of videos playing in a browser, right?

    Kodi does not run in a browser. I guess I missed that portion of your original post.
