Playback Rate

Description from extension meta

Control the playback rate of HTML5 <video> and <audio> elements

Image from store Playback Rate
Description from store Adds a "Playback Rate" context menu to <video> and <audio> elements, allowing the speed at which it is played back to be controlled. Note that Chrome's audio implementation currently has bugs (e.g. http://crbug.com/108239) which may result in the 1.25 and 1.5 rates not working.

  • (2014-04-17) John Murphy: Doesn't show up anywhere when installed with Google Play on ASUS Chromebox when accessing MP3 files. Playback Rate is installed and HTML5 is enabled.
  • (2014-04-16) Darko Jovic: Works great the first time, but after restarting Chrome the menu goes away... fix pls!
  • (2014-03-16) Chaitan Thompson: This isn't working for me, the menu bar does not contain any option like the one shown in the screenshot.
  • (2013-09-12) Pamela De La Cruz: This is great! Now I can listen to my lectures at 2X speed with no problem. As a student, this is immensely helpful!
  • (2013-09-10) Carl Chan: Great Great tool up productivity 10 folds.
  • (2013-04-14) Ken Maclean: Works great. If you're having problems with this on youtube, the playback rate options are with the quality options in the gear menu.
  • (2013-03-14) Misha Mazor: Amazing, can't live without it. Does not work on all embedded Vimeo clips and requires HTML5 versions of Youtube videos.
  • (2013-01-15) Ronny Orbach: Ha, you beat me to it :-) Great implementation. Only issue is floating-point values don't work, because you use parseInt rather than parseFloat, so for example 1.75 turns out as 1.
  • (2013-01-07) London Rook: Wonderful extension for listening to podcasts... I just wish that 1.25x and 1.5x worked!
  • (2012-11-17) Janis Abele: Great tool! I am using for every HTML5 video.
