Last month, I wrote about speeding up videos (1) and how I often liked to watch my videos at 1.5x the speed. This morning, my husband sent me a link for an even quicker way to speeden up Youtube videos. Even quicker than a few clicks – I like it ☺
It’s an extension for Chrome called Youtube Playback Speed Control (2), sorry if you do not use Chrome. If you do, when you add it, it appears in the toolbar of Chrome. I selected Options and went to Setttings (3).
You can pick the key you want to increase or decrease your speed. I picked the Down button to decrease speed and the Up button to increase speed as shown in the picture.
It’s a nifty little keyboard shortcut that allows you play your video faster or slower without having to click around. Ok, maybe I am a little bit of a geek at heart and I like these little productivity tips.
Hope that you can benefit from it too and watch videos at the right pace for you. Happy watching!
