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.

  • (2020-04-08, v:1.2.1) Customer Review: Increase speed rates
    It works for the videos I am forced to watch for a course. and the website doesn't allow me to just scroll through to the end. this tool serves my need, I am wondering if you can implement faster speed rates, more than 3x. Of course one cannot make sense of the video at such high speed rates, but it helps for people who are being forced to watch videos for sake of completion. Thank you.

  • (2015-01-07, v:1.2.1) Simply Does Not Appear.
    I have NO idea how to use this product and the information is utterly non-existent. I have a similar product, and its logo appears to the right of the URL bar. This one appears nowhere.
