Can I use JS to change the volume of a video in the html5 video component?

I just want to be able to load the video component at 50% volume so I don't blow the users ears out when a video plays?

 

seems like I should be able to do that easily.  I can't find documentation ANYWHERE.

I think I am seeing the issue - I am issuing the command: this.diy1embed.volume=.25;   it works in the console but is unavailable in the movie on click or on frame - I believe its a timing issue.

ok all - here was the solution:

setTimeout(function(){ this.diy1embed.volume=.15; }, 200);

a 200ms delay on the volume change gave the component the time to load
