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.
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:
You can also adjust the video speed in the mobile YouTube app for iOS and Android; also in the indicated gradations. To do this, open the app, call up a video and then tap the three dots in the top right corner of its play area - this works in both player and full screen mode. After tapping on the three menu items you select "playback speed". In addition to "Normal", which stands here instead of "Standard", you will find the individual gradations from 0,25 to 2 times. In full screen mode you may have to scroll up or down to do this.
