A bit on the subject, youtube has added normalization stats.  It will show
normalization amongst other data.  Right/click on a video, 'Stats for
nerds'.  Taking a video I listened-to recently, "Resistance is futile"
by Laibach, the following is shown:

Volume/Normalized   100%/62% (contents loudness 4.2 dB)
Codecs   vp9 (244) / opus (251)
