How to Watch Videos at 1.5x speed

Boo to YT; what are you thinking?

Did you mean the variable speed option on YT? AFAIK (and I often use the feature) it is available to those viewing from the U.S. Cannot speak for other viewing regions.

FYI.....YT recently "changed" the choices....whereas it used to be 1 or +1.5 and +2.0. Now there are "intermediary speeds" of "+1.25" and "+1.75" (although, your speeds may vary! ;) ).

(ALSO.....0.25 and 0.50.......slooooowwwwwwww mooooootion......)....No, not "Moo-tion" (sorry, couldn't resist a very terrible joke, here! No cows were harmed in the creation of this joke).

I've been begging my co-workers for years to hold the damned meetings in 1.5

Unfortunately, their brains have trouble keeping up with their mouths even at .5 :oops:
(and sometimes Mario gets a bit pixellated @ 1.5)

Is that to save time?

Edit: Dumb question maybe, probably the only logical reason.

Not entirely, it also makes the videos easier to watch even if you have lots of time. A slow trickle of information just makes my brain shut down in frustration. And some people just speak annoyingly slow.

Try it on this interview with William Gibson. His slightly slurred normal speech sounds vastly better at 1.5, even though the interviewer sounds a bit rapid.

I don't have that option. Not available in the Netherlands I guess.
But I get why you want to listen to this interview in 1.5 speed.

This is soooooooooooo useful to me. I hate clicking on something and there is no article, just a YouTube video. And yes I am Type A.

Cool feature and time-stretching the audio instead of pitching it.

Tried two browsers on ipad, both do not support it for this location. I guess I never get the time to watch that ten hour video of black screen.

It is working now for me. The time-stretching of the audio sometimes makes it hard to understand at 1,5x speed. I really have to pay 1,5x times more attention to English and German. For Dutch language it's alright.

Now when people accuse me of replying to quickly in a thread and not watching 2,5 hours of 'undeniable proof' from beginning to end, I can blame it on the speed control. :rolleyes:
