Description from extension meta

Speed up, slow down, advance and rewind HTML5 audio/video with shortcuts

Image from store Video Speed Controller
Description from store HTML5 video provides native APIs to accelerate playback of any video, but most implemented players either hide or limit this functionality. This extension fixes that, plus more... It will help you optimize your video viewing by allowing you to make quick playback speed adjustments, as well as rewind the video to hear the last few second one more time. We don't read at a constant speed, and we talk much slower than we read - there is no reason why we have to listen at a constant speed and at a (very) slow rate. Once the extension is installed simply navigate to any page that offers HTML5 video, and you'll see a speed indicator in top left corner of the video player. Hover over the indicator to reveal the controls to accelerate, slowdown, or rewind the video (10 seconds + lowers playback speed). Or, even better, use your keyboard: - S - decrease playback speed. - D - increase playback speed. - R - reset playback speed. - Z - rewind video by 10 seconds. - X - advance video by 10 seconds. - V - show/hide controller. If you prefer other shortcuts, want to change the increment value, or want the player to remember your playback speed in the future, head into the settings page and customize it to your heart's content.

  • (2022-07-19) Allan Cristhian Kath Kipfer: Wonderful! To bad i can't change by using the options tab, his location when minified player and as well when on fullscreen, cause most of the times it goes right under the title of the video, and i cant click it..I use a lot of hotkeys so, it's ok but some times, some times it's handy to be able to actually click on it without some shenanigans
  • (2022-07-17) Eli: could use help
  • (2022-07-17) Chelle: Dont know how to use it!!! Need to show proper instructions and WHERE to find the info on increased speeds!?!? Not a good extension sorry!
  • (2022-07-12) Cena Bale: I need new adding pause/play and loop shortcuts :( And "Tab" doesn't work shortcut pff Please new adding zoom in and out, scroll up,down,left,right
  • (2022-07-10) Eve Nhi: Finally an extension that works with Zoom recorded meetings!!! So good to be able to speed up meetings >2x beyond what the web player allows. This seriously saves me so much time at work.
  • (2022-07-08) Deb: Funciona perfeitamente e é muito útil
  • (2022-07-06) Thiago Henrique: Não consigo usar de jeito nenhum no Vimeo.
  • (2022-07-04) 19UCS031_A_Samadrit Sarkar: Very handy and easy to use. The shortcuts just get into hands and hence it becomes very comfortable
  • (2022-07-01) Collin Lund: Very simple and useful. Works so well. I can blow past adds and slow down content that moves too fast. Highly recommend.
  • (2022-06-30) Fish Chi: The default position is overlapped with the "back" button on Netflix, I think that's why it doesn't work on Netflix now. I successfully moved it a little when paused, but it went back to homepage right away. It'd be great if we can set its position beforehand, or set it through keyboard shortcut.
  • (2022-06-27) Andy Ann: 腾讯视频不能用了,好像被遮挡了,块修改下,我的五倍速,求支持
  • (2022-06-26) Alireza Ahmadi: This is the best thing I found for easily adjusting video speed. What I like the most about this is that, we can quickly increase/decrease video speed with keyboard shortcuts and it's so easy to do that I can do it many many times according to the difficulty of content I am watching. I also like that there is no limitation to the speed, so you can increase the video speed as much as you wish. It always annoyed me that youtube has only 2x for example but sometimes 2x is still slow and boring! Thank you for the amazing extension. I am using it every day.
  • (2022-06-24) Joe Fitzgerald: Very useful

  • (2022-06-19) Каверы и не только: Очень давно искала что поможет мне экономить время и нашла)) К сожалению, не на всех видео можно менять скорость, но с этим расширением всё отлично!
  • (2022-06-08) Erick Rafael Ibarra Coronado: wooow simplemente lo que buscaba, muy sencillo y util ya el 2x no me era en nada suficiente
  • (2022-06-07) Sarah Preston: great accessibility tool. also lets you skip youtube ads, which is very slay.
  • (2022-06-07) Aditya Sreerama: An absolute must have for me. To the point where I'm unable to shift to a non-chromium based browser (Safari) coz no other video speeed extension works as seamlessly.
  • (2022-06-05) Cai gi2 nhin: quá là ok luôn

  • (2022-05-30) Jayanth S Shekar: This extension is a life saver, Thank you
  • (2022-05-29) Rachael Moore: Great for speed control, but on some streaming sites (paramount pus specifically), it causes the screen to vibrate because the player is constantly trying to show and hide. Even when I disabled it, it still did it until I had to uninstall to get it to stop.
  • (2022-05-29) Trippygawa: GREAT! WORKS WITH PH TOO! 🤣
  • (2022-05-28) kendel duke: you can set whatever prefferred speed on the video speed controller
  • (2022-05-25) Benj Lancion: WOWWWWW
  • (2022-05-21) Tannington Tannie: i rate 5/8 best extension
  • (2022-05-19) Mariele Oliveira: Gente, como faz pra funcionar ele? É só ir no video que voce esta e clicar a letra D? Eu faço isso e não vai, ou tem algum atalho junto?
  • (2022-05-18) Kino thri D: sehr hilfreich, top
  • (2022-05-16) Natan: Perfecta!!
  • (2022-05-14) David Oloan: Amazing! 100% recommended
  • (2022-05-12) Derk Poortenga: This is my favorite extension to use in my lineup. It's useful for skipping "un-skippable" ads by either forwarding time or just speeding them up, and it works wonderfully for all the streaming services I use - especially the ones who don't offer speed controls at all. The speed window is moveable and is close-out-able. So don't be worried about it's location, or visibility when watching content. A quick refresh of the page will bring the speed controls back.
  • (2022-05-08) Processor: Works great and easy to control.
  • (2022-05-06) Tuure Piitulainen: Thought I would have no need for this extension, but turns out I was wrong. Unobtrusive and makes controlling video speed via keyboard shortcuts so satisfyingly smooth. Very flexible settings for setting the increments just right.
  • (2022-04-27) MJ Habib: Very useful, powerful and amazing. Thank you
  • (2022-04-23) Hugh Yu: Really great, cannot live without! Anyone know how to use the extension for local videos?
  • (2022-04-23) Gunhee Lee: the best speed controller i've used so far.
  • (2022-04-22) Nico Chua: Very convenient being able to adjust video speed quickly with S and D keys
  • (2022-04-20) Marc Vigod: It works! Tried it on Discovery Plus and works like a charm. I'm so used to watching higher speeds on youtube this is what I need for sites that don't natively support changing playback speed. Also like you can go in .10 increments if you need more granular tuning. 5 stars
  • (2022-04-20) Yash Gada: Its good. Just works. Perfect for me at least
  • (2022-04-19) Oscar Wilmerding: Been using for 3ish year, such a good tool. I use it all the time, and it literally works on anything. It is most useful for sites that you cannot speed it up (mainly homework sites).
  • (2022-04-19) Matt Read: it super great however i find it difficult to watch things at 1x speed and this just won't work on bbc iplayer, when I first installed it it worked on everything but now it won't work on this particular website, which is upsetting as I want to watch the new doctor who episodes but i cannot

    I record me and my friends D&D sessions using OBS into mp4 files. When I want to play them back to take better notes, I started opening the files from my desktop in Chrome and I noticed this extension doesn't appear on the video like it does for everything else I watch (I love this extension by the way lol, use it everyday). Luckily the video can be speed to 2x speed just through the browser, but I was just thought it would be nice to use for this as well. Figured I'd share to see if it's something that could be added.

  • (2022-04-28, v:0.7.1) Steve Condylios: Set a default speed for all videos
    It would be really nice to be able to set a global default speed for all videos. It's a desperately needed feature. E.g. I would set mine to 1.5 or 1.75, and in rare cases where I want slower I'd press s to slow it down to normal, but the rest of the time I'd leave it. That would save manually adjusting the speed every single time a video autoplays, instead it would simply be fast by default.
  • (2022-04-12, v:0.7.1) cjla8ok: Добрый день, в браузере firefox video speed controller не корректно работает.
    а именно плагин отзывается стрелки left и right , скидывая скорость видео до 0.2х то же самое при наведении курсора на шкалу длительности(перемотки) видео,при переходе в другую часть видео тоже самое скидывает скорость на 0.2х

    Of all the extensions we have, this is the one we use the most. We love it because videos seem generally too slow, especially lectures. The only thing that would make it more useful to us is if embedded audio files could be sped up as well. Thanks for creating this!

  • (2021-12-13, v:0.7.1) Lolli L: Subtitles
    I think it'd be great if you somehow made it so that subtitles sped up as well. Currently, the subtitles tend to overlay each other and lag behind when a video is sped up. Youtube's playback speed does this when you choosen any of their speed options so it is possible to change the subtitles along with the speed of the video.

I am not sure what the new video format it that the extension detects the video but when i try to make a change nothing happens.

  • (2021-09-30, v:0.7.1) Paul Edward: shortcut mapping won't persist beyond refresh (Chrome only)
    Suddenly, in addition to the positioning problem many others have mentioned, I seem to no longer be able to remap some (but strangely, not all - others still work) shortcuts. Those that don't remap simply revert back to the their prior state upon refresh (which strangely enough, is not the default setting but my own set up long ago). also, perhaps of some interest; this very extension, downloaded the same way, i.e., via the web store works the same as it always has for Vivaldi; perfectly. It's just the Chrome instance that appears to be experiencing myriad issues of a suddenly. kindly provide an update with a status if a solution cannot be reached or is not being sought out, preferably with a suggested alternative with feature parity. My preference would be to continue using this extension, though. thank you
