Increase the Playback Speed of YouTube Videos


As they say: time is money.

Time is valuable.

You can lose money but you can always make money.

Time passes, but we can never create more time or buy more time.

The sand in the hourglass is moving downward, we just don’t know how fast.

Life could end in 60 years or tomorrow perhaps.

We only know for sure that it will all be over one day.

When you love, cherish and appreciate your life, that may be a sad thought.

The power of this fact is that it gives us the opportunity to live our lives to the fullest.

To live our lives mindfully and with intention.

If we could speed up certain things to save time, would you do it?

Well, luckily we can speed up YouTube videos!

There are multiple speeds: 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, and 2.

I suggest speeding the video to at least 1.25.

You will still be able to understand everything the person is saying.

If the person is communicating slowly, you may go for 1.5 or even 2.

it is also possible to slow down the video if you’re following a tutorial closely for example.

In the browser, you find this playback speed option by clicking on the gear icon below the video.

On your device, you want to tap the ellipsis (3 dots) to find the playback speed option.

Of course, this option is not always recommended!

When you listen to your favourite songs this option is an absolute no go!

But for any other type of content (even my videos that’s fine :-D), you will definitely want to make this option a habit.
