Sometimes the music is just to cover up loud wind noise and people talking about nonsense while they film. I have a handful of videos on youtube and 1 or maybe 2 have music playing. The wind noise on the comp course at RC was so loud the end result was 3 minutes of loud static noise during playback. I picked whatever fast paced rock n roll music youtube offered. But I also have the option of just turning the volume off, as do you.

Sometimes you have no control over what somebody else puts together but a 30ft backwards bounce followed by a upright landing to a flop is awesome even when muted.|

Sometimes subtlety is lost when all you can hear in a video is thrash death metal and yes I could turn off the volume. Geeze, what an easy fix! Why didn’t I think of that before I started this thread? J
Watching a Jeep go over an obstacle with loud music blaring in the video masks how much gas they are using, or their lockers clicking, or a myriad of other sounds. On the trails I don't want to hear a loud loping cam cacophony directly in front or behind me the whole time I’m wheeling either, any more than have my eyes burning because the rig in front is using nitro fuel for their 600 hp modified rig. This happened to me in Hot Springs about 10 years ago and it was awful. A number of us pulled off the trail and let this fellow get way ahead of us, as he was also running open headers. We all had ear plugs in, it was so loud.
I prefer to hear the normal vehicle noise in a video and all the surrounding noise, than loud obnoxious music that attempts to induce adrenaline in the viewer, or boost the adventure, which IMO, does not.

music as the only sound is one thing. Can be ditched without any loss. However, music playing when there is voice is a totally different issue.
The producers need to take a simple course in listening to what their veiwers hear. That is especially true to us old guys and to those younger ones who seem to think their ears are immune to volume damage. (good idea to invest in hearing aid stock because there are generations coming up who are going to need them at a very early age.)
As your hearing degenerates, either from age or loud noise/music, you lose 2 things. One is the high frequencies. The other is the destinction between letters. The combination of these two make it difficult to ascertain just what word is being spoken. Usually hearing aids don't do much good until there is extreme degradation.
The result of this is that the voices fade and the music is amplified to the listener. That makes it virtually impossible to hear someone speaking if there is any background music or unless it is very muted. Typically the sound is at least 6db (4 times) what it should be to someone 70 years old.
To those who insist on listening to the loud sounds, just put some cotton in each of your ears and you will have a preview of what your hearing will be like in 10-15 years. And just pray that you don't develop the ringing in your ears that goes with some instances of hearing impairment.
It isn't a case of IF, but WHEN. And then it will be

I didn't even watch the videos. (THE OP'S POSTED VIDS) I know what you're referring to when you say loud music.
And I personally don't like loud music either.
But like other said, if you don't like it, then don't watch it.

In my videos personally, I ditch all of the vehicle noise because I do film with a gopro. A go pro on a jeep typically just picks up wind noise, some rattling, and quiet motor noise. If I used a higher quality camera that recorded sound well, I may consider using it in my videos...but I would still include music as well. I think music is much more fitting on an edited video rather than a short random clip, but thats just me.
Here are a couple videos Ive done on a Gopro, where I edited out the sound for the reasons I mentioned.

I picked the 2 videos at random to prove my point, but evidently I didn't do so well in that area.
I have a feeling if I posted a topic that I didn't like farts, there would be a phew(!) who would defend their own.

ya i dunno either.
3 million food views and 1k wheeling views. elevator music ftw

|Chris M||I'm not a big fan of the music when watching wheelin' videos. I'd rather hear the natural sounds of the action taking place. However, if there is music and I don't like it, I just turn the sound off. Simple solution.|

It's probably the music they are listening to while wheeling. And if they're having fun listening to it and wheeling all the power to them.
Someday the OP will know what it's like to actually wheel.
And hopefully, he'll be playing some elevator music in his youtube videos going over large rocks.

|Ballandchain||Man, why does everybody bitch and moan when something isn't exactly how they like it. Turn the volume off and make vroom vroom noises in your head. 95% of the time I don't like the music but I listen to maybe find something new that I haven't heard before.... Start a music vs no music thread. Looks like that's the popular thing to do....|
|04-03-2012 10:01 AM|
95% the time I have my laptop muted, including watching videos.
How else will people know it is XTREME!!!!! if there isn't loud music?
|04-03-2012 09:56 AM|
I think, if the music is done right (regardless of type), it can be extremely effective.
Years ago I was at the Eddie Adams Workshop in upstate NY, and saw a slideshow shot by students at a local chicken slaughterhouse. Very graphic and disturbing photos accompanied only by the music from Metallica's "Fuel for Fire".

|Casotakar1229||lol, just won't watch them op, or turn on mute and open your windows in your house if you like bird chirping noises. problem solved and no more hate has to run through your veins...hate after all, is worthless.|
|04-03-2012 08:12 AM|
|baytownbert||I would rather hear how much gas a person is using to get over the obstacle or even a bird singing in the great outdoors than crappy thrashing music, but the banjo stuff was okay. I could still hear other sounds.|

|Cruise missile||My choice for music was to cover up the horrible sound of my 3.6. Still working on getting the dealer to fix it.|
