why is there no sound when on the 0.25 speed setting?
When I try to watch a video at a different speed it doesn’t change and instead plays at normal speed. Is anyone else having this problem and/or knows how to fix it?
What browser (and version and platform)? URL of the video(s)?
Why, specifically, do some people speed up videos they upload to YouTube? I notice you mention that some people do it to avoid the drag of a meeting or webinar, but why do they do it on youtube? What’s the purpose of speeding up a cartoon, unless in doing so they somehow manage to avoid copyright laws and YouTube doesn’t delete it for violating such. Appreciate a response if you have one….
Mark, it has nothing to do with copyright. Based on anecdotal evidence, some developers like to speed up conference videos or training sessions. These are often posted to YouTube, so they can do it here.
Based on the huge search traffic this post gets, many regular users just want to be done with entertainment videos that much sooner, perhaps in an effort to feel like they are wasting less time.
I do know that users with cognitive impairments, hearing loss, or other limitations like to slow videos down to be sure they are able to keep up.
My examples in the post are tongue-in-cheek.
I think some YT Videos are just slightly too fast Is it possible to slow them down to 80 or 90%?
The only speed options are what YouTube makes available.
I suppose a keyboard shortcut is just way too much to ask for? Presently it takes 3 clicks to change the speed of a video, then 1 more click to get rid of the pop up menu that lingers, covering
¼ of the screen. Freaken ridiculous.
I found a site not only can change the speed , it can change the pitch of the videos also. It help me big time on all those tutorial videos I have to watch , somehow my professor sounds better in a chipmunk voice rofl
With this Chrome extension you can change the speed of a Youtube video more precisely, and also change the pitch: Transpose – Pitch – Loop for videos
is there a quick way to alter the speed using a keyboard shortcut?
Sadly, none that I know of. But I am also away from a keyboard to even play around.
Yes, use your buttons to increase and decrease the speed. See here for reference.
