We analyzed the loudness of YouTube videos in Japan

Japanese YouTube Loudness Histogram

We analyzed the sound pressure of the YouTube video in Japan .

On YouTube, loudness normalization is introduced. Loudness normalization on YouTube lowers the volume of the video whose sound pressure is too high, but does not raise the volume of the movie whose sound pressure is too low.

If you have lots of videos with too little sound pressure on YouTube, you can increase the volume played on YouTube by raising the sound pressure to the extent that sound quality is not impaired.

Question

How much movie is too small sound pressure on YouTube?

As mentioned above.

Does the sound pressure drop if the YouTube video length is long?

As the length increases, the probability that the peak of the waveform will increase by chance will increase. If you use a limiter, you can suppress those peaks, but if you do not use a limiter, the sound pressure may decrease as the length increases.

From this, if you examine the relationship between length and loudness, it seems to be a material to judge whether the limiter is used or not. There are other factors related to length and loudness, so we can not make a judgment alone, but once we examine the relationship between length and sound pressure.

Discussion

How much movie is too small sound pressure on YouTube?

Looking at "Loudness cumulative density distribution", except for "Lantis", the loudness of 90% or more of the video is -14 dB or less.

Since the loudness calculation formula used this time is different from that of YouTube, I can not show the line that loudness normalization is applied any more, but as I think that -14 dB is sufficiently small as reference here , since sound pressure other than Lantis If you raise it, there seems to be a possibility that the volume at the time of playing on YouTube will rise.

Does the sound pressure drop if the YouTube video length is long?

According to "Loudness vs Length Average and Standard Deviation", such a fact is unlikely.

Summary

I analyzed the sound pressure of the YouTube video in Japan.

"Haruan" is a Japanese YouTuber who is fully compliant with the loudness normalization!

" Haruan " may be YouTuber which is fully compliant with loudness normalization .

Loudness normalization fully compliant What is YouTuber?

YouTuber understands YouTube 's loudness normalization specification and uses it well .

What is Loudness Normalization?

YouTube automatically adjusts the volume between videos.

Have you seen "detailed statistics" from the right click menu of YouTube videos?

youtube video stats

Please pay attention to "Content loudness" in this. This value is a reference when YouTube performs loudness normalization.

If "Content loudness" is positive, YouTube will lower the volume. If it is minus, the volume remains unchanged.

Two facts about sound

To make good use of loudness normalization, the following two facts are important.

A. There is a trade-off relationship between sound pressure and sound quality

B. Larger volume sounds better

How to make good use of loudness normalization

On YouTube, since loudness normalization works, there are points where the sound volume does not rise even if the sound pressure is raised . It is the point where the above "Content loudness" becomes 0.

Since the sound pressure and sound quality are in a trade-off relationship, increasing the sound pressure so that the "Content loudness" becomes 0 or more on YouTube, the volume does not rise, so the larger the volume, the better the sound is heard Instead, only the sound quality goes down .

So, the best solution when raising a video on YouTube is to set "Content loudness" near 0 or below 0 .

"Harukanaru" video content loudness "

Please take a look at "Content loudness" of recent Hara video. I think that every video is near 0 dB .

Video of 2018/12/02 ("Content loudness" 0.0 dB)

Video of September 23, 2018 ("Content loudness" 0.0 dB)

In other words, Haruan's movie is the best balance of sound pressure and sound quality on YouTube. It is unusual for it to happen unintentionally, so it may be intentionally done.

However, in the video before a while, "Content loudness" deviates from 0 dB .

2018/05/25 movie ("Content loudness" -1.7 dB)

Video of 2017/11/12 ("Content loudness" - 8.5 dB)

Recently, it may correspond to the loudness normalization.

Summary

It was an article that YouTuber " Haruan " might be fully compliant with the loudness normalization .

For YouTuber applications and news applications, YouTube's loudness normalization criteria are sufficiently low, so it may be natural to respond like SEO from now on .

YouTube's loudness normalization algorithm

Estimated Weighting Curve Used for YouTube Loudness Normalization

In order to raise the highest sound quality video to YouTube, you need to know the YouTube loudness normalization specification.

However, YouTube's loudness normalization specification is not published. Some people have already been investigated, but specific calculation formulas are not known.

I tried to estimate the formula for loudness normalization on YouTube.

YouTube loudness normalization specification

The following is a summary of the survey results.

The loudness normalization is performed in a manner that the loudness of the sound source is adjusted to the loudness target value as much as possible within a range where the peak does not clip.

The loudness of the sound source is calculated with its own specifications, but by replacing the weighting curve of Short-term loudness of EBU TECH 3341 with the following and taking the maximum value of Short-term loudness, it is possible to obtain the accuracy of 1 dB Can be approximated.

Estimated Weighting Curve Used for YouTube Loudness Normalization

Research policy

We will investigate the framework of YouTube's loudness normalization in detail and the details of loudness calculation.

A large frame of YouTube's loudness normalization

I think that probably it looks like the following when referring to here .

The loudness normalization on YouTube is done in a way that the loudness of the sound source is adjusted to the loudness target value as much as possible within the range where the peak does not clip. When written with an expression, it becomes the following.

Compensation (dB) = Min (- Peak, Target - Loudness)

Peak is the peak of the sound source, Loudness is the loudness of the sound source, Target is a constant, the loudness target value, and Compensation is the correction gain. The overall volume changes uniformly by the amount of Compensation.

Right click on a YouTube video and the content loudness seen from the detailed statistical information is equivalent to Loudness - Target.

Loudness calculation formula on YouTube

YouTube's loudness calculation formula seems to be using its own one. So, I need to guess.

Consider the following model with reference to ITU-R BS.1770-3.

Equalizer -> Cut by window -> Convert to LUFS -> Gating -> Aggregation

Equalizer

Weight each frequency by an equalizer.

In previous experiments, K-weighting adopted in ITU-R BS.1770-3 and other popular weighting did not apply, so estimate direct frequency characteristics.

Cut by window

Cut out the waveform with the Rect window.

Window length and overlap ratio are parameters.

For reference, the momentary and integrated parameters of ITU-R BS.1770-3 and EBU TECH 3341 have a window length of 400 ms and an overlap length of 100 ms (the overlap ratio is 75%). The short-term loudness parameter of EBU TECH 3341 has a window length of 3 seconds and an overlap length of 2.9 seconds or more (overlap ratio is 96.7% or more).

Convert to LUFS

Calculate the RMS of the extracted waveform and convert it to LUFS with Log 10 (RMS).

It also corrects to be 0 with stereo 1000 Hz sine wave. The correction amount for ITU-R BS.1770-3 is -0.691 dB.

Gating

In order to eliminate the influence of silence time on loudness, we discard small sounds among multiple RMS values ​​obtained by cutting out.

Refer to ITU-R BS.1770-3 and EBU TECH 3342 and perform Absolute threshold gating and Relative threshold gating.

The parameters are the respective Threshold values. I also try patterns that do not do gating.

For reference, the parameters of ITU-R BS.1770-3 and EBU TECH 3341 are Absolute Threshold -70 LKFS and Relative Threshold -10 dB. Parameters for calculating the Loudness Range of EBU TECH 3342 are Absolute Threshold -70 LKFS and Relative Threshold -20 dB.

Aggregation

Take the average or maximum of multiple RMS values ​​remaining in Gating.

ITU-R BS.1770-3 takes an average, but it seems there is a possibility of using the maximum value of Short-term according to this .

Test video used for parameter estimation

Prepare a test movie to estimate the parameters of the loudness calculation model.

According to here , it seems that there is a possibility that loudness normalization will not be applied if there is not a certain number of playback numbers, or it will not be applied unless some time has elapsed since posting. Without preparing test videos on their own, there are enough playback numbers, select some of the existing videos that have been posted enough times, and make them test videos.

A list of test videos is described in the Appendix.

Equalizer parameter estimation

By using a sinusoidal test movie with a constant volume, you can eliminate effects other than equalization on loudness. Using this we first estimate the frequency response of the equalizer.

For the sine wave sound source of various frequencies, measure the content loudness on YouTube and estimate the frequency characteristics by taking the difference from the RMS of the sound source. The estimation result is below. For detailed data please see Appendix.

Estimated Weighting Curve Used for YouTube Loudness Normalization

The result was unstable, for example, the results were different depending on the animation even at the same frequency above 16 kHz, so in the following discussion, we will only use data below 15 kHz. Extrapolate with linear interpolation for 44 Hz or less and 15 kHz or more.

Parameter estimation other than equalizer

Next, fix the frequency characteristics of the equalizer and estimate parameters other than the equalizer.

Calculate the loudness of various videos with various parameters. Compare with the loudness (Content Loudess) calculated by YouTube and look for the parameter with the least error. The test video list is described in the Appendix.

background

What is mastering?

Mastering is the task of adjusting the sound. By mastering, it makes it easier to hear, and powerful. Simply put, it makes a good sound. By realizing dynamic range, frequency characteristics, sound pressure (loudness) etc, realize it.

For music, professional, amateur, regardless of releasing the song, almost always, mastering is done. For movies, I think that mastering is probably done on commercially available movies and TV programs, but I think that many videos uploaded to YouTube are not mastered. When you listen to the sound of a TV or movie and the sound of YouTube, especially when you listen to the sound of YouTube, it is difficult to listen by the volume difference between the videos (especially difficult to listen to) Saya, time to adjust the volume), there is a difference.

For movies, the word mixing, mixing, MA may be more popular than mastering. What is the difference between these and mastering?

Simply put, it is an image that contains silence, mix and mastering in the MA. Recording -> MA (sound -> mix -> mastering) -> distribution. Since there is a possibility that opinions may differ more than any other person, I do not get deeply involved. ※ In music, the boundary between mix and mastering is ambiguous.

An era where you can shoot, edit, and upload videos with your smartphone

Already there are many useful video editing applications on the App Store. Combining these applications makes it easy to shoot, edit and upload movies with smartphones.

Furthermore, if you combine AI Mastering, you can also automatically master video and audio. You can expect to be able to create movies that make it easier to listen to sounds than ever.

How to use

Use as preprocessing (sound) of video editing

It is a method of using AI Mastering as the original material before video editing.

I think that when you record with iPhone's standard microphone, noise often comes in. Noise can be reduced by passing AI Mastering before video editing. Since the volume is also aligned, it will be easier to handle as a material for movie editing.

Use as a finishing (mastering) after video editing

Using AI Mastering as a finishing before uploading after attaching BGM or sound effect in movie editing.

Overall quality can be raised.

FAQ

What is Loudness Normalization?

Loudness normalization is a function to make the volume of video constant. Since the volume difference between videos is reduced, you do not have to adjust the volume each time the user switches the video.

Loudness normalization is also introduced on YouTube. However, if the volume of the original movie is too small on YouTube, the volume after loudness normalization will remain small. Such videos are also frequent on top YouTuber videos.

With AI Mastering, optimize the volume when playing on YouTube so that it does not become smaller compared to other videos. You can prevent your video from losing power compared to other videos on YouTube.

Loudness normalization has already been introduced on YouTube. Is there any meaning to increase sound pressure now?

It is necessary to ensure the minimum sound pressure according to the level of the loudness normalization, but there is no need to pursue further sound pressure.

However, as a result of analyzing YouTube's video sound, there are not many videos on YouTube that have reached the minimum sound pressure. Easily securing the minimum sound pressure with AI Mastering makes it sound comparable to the surrounding sound. ※ The results of the survey will be reported separately.

Since sound pressure and sound quality are in a tradeoff, it is best to aim at the very close sound pressure at which volume reduction by loudness normalization occurs. Therefore, the sound pressure setting of the smartphone version of AI Mastering is set lower than the web service version.

Using AI Mastering, you can raise the sound pressure without thinking about tradeoffs with sound quality at minimum sound pressure.

Does the volume rise so much that the sound breaks?

AI Mastering has a mechanism to prevent sound cracking called a limiter. The limiter of AI Mastering raises the volume while checking whether the sound is broken, so it may occasionally crack sound, but in most cases it will not sound crack.

However, please note that there may be a sound crack due to re-encoding. Re-encoding is to decode a video encoded in mp4 format etc. once and encode again. As a result, the form of the speech waveform changes and the peak jumps out, which may distort the sound.

Re-encoding is done when editing video or uploading to a video site. AI Mastering gives some margin to the peak in order to prevent sound cracking due to re-encoding, but how much peak will pop out by re-encoding greatly depends on re-encoding settings and the original sound source.

If you break the sound after uploading the movie, if you tell us the site you uploaded (YouTube etc.), we will respond.

What is the difference with other video editing applications?

The difference between AI Mastering and other video editing applications is where AI Mastering specializes in sound. Because I can not edit video instead of specializing in sound, I think that it is good to use it together with other video editing application.

It is a comparison table with movie editing application that can be used on iPhone.
