Change YouTube speed: watch videos faster / slower

If you want to watch a YouTube video faster or slower, you don't need a browser plug-in or an alternative app. The video platform from Google itself offers possibilities to play a video faster as well as to slow it down. The good thing about it: the voices of the people acting in the videos are not distorted into higher positions - despite the faster picture sequence, there are no Mickey Mouse sounds;) Here you can find the instructions for changing the YouTube speed on the website and in the app.

Change YouTube speed in web browser

If you watch a YouTube video with a Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera or other browser version that supports HTML5, you can also change the YouTube video speed. To do this, simply click on the small gear in the controls of the video. This can also be used to set the video quality (480p, 720p HD, 1080p HD, 4K, etc.). Therefore there may be a red and white "HD" symbol on the gear. Don't let that fool you, click on it and then select "playback speed". Now you can choose from the following options:

  • 0.25 = 1/4 of normal speed
  • 0.5 = 1/2 of normal speed
  • 0.75 = 3/4 of normal speed
  • Standard = the normal speed
  • 1.25 = 1,25 times the speed of the video
  • 1.5 = 1,5 times the speed of the video
  • 1.75 = 1,75 times the speed of the video
  • 2 = 2 times the speed of the video
In the web browser you click on the gear wheel as the control element of the YouTube video, then select the playback speed and choose whether you want to watch the video faster or slower.
