HTML5 video provides native APIs to accelerate playback of any video, but most implemented players either hide or limit this functionality. This extension fixes that, plus more... 

It will help you optimize your video viewing by allowing you to make quick playback speed adjustments, as well as rewind the video to hear the last few second one more time. We don't read at a constant speed, and we talk much slower than we read - there is no reason why we have to listen at a constant speed and at a (very) slow rate.

Once the extension is installed simply navigate to any page that offers HTML5 video, and you'll see a speed indicator in top left corner of the video player. Hover over the indicator to reveal the controls to accelerate, slowdown, or rewind the video (10 seconds + lowers playback speed). Or, even better, use your keyboard:

- S - decrease playback speed.
- D - increase playback speed.
- R - reset playback speed.
- Z - rewind video by 10 seconds.
- X - advance video by 10 seconds.
- V - show/hide controller.

If you prefer other shortcuts, want to change the increment value, or want the player to remember your playback speed in the future, head into the settings page and customize it to your heart's content.

  • This is the extension i use the most and that i recommend the most. I've saved probably hundreds of hours using it for the past couple of years. So thank you igrigorik for creating this extension! I got worried yesterday when it stopped working, giving some weird errors in the console about not being able to connect to something. Fortunately it is now working again. Anyway, I just wanted to say "thank you" to the developer and to show this extension is loved by the community, hoping this plugin is not affected by the changes Google is bringing to Chrome.

  • One Click and it works perfectly! And it is unobtrusive in the upper left corner of the video. Thank you.
