How to Speed Up YouTube Videos
Today I want to share a really cool YouTube feature that’s perfect for watching tutorials, reviews, and documentaries. It helps you watch YouTube videos faster.
How? By increasing the speed of the videos. YouTube has a built-in functionality that allows you to increase the speed of the video you’re watching for whatever purpose it may serve.
First, you want to go to Settings shown below
Go up to ‘Speed’ and set to 1.5 The higher the number, the faster the video will play.
Will the voice be contorted if the person speaking is a natural fast talker?
No. If the speaker talks fast, he can still convey a lot of information. We can speed them up to 50% and still clearly understand them. The only problem you might encounter comprehension-wise, is if you speed up a video with a speaker that has a thick accent you’re not used to.
There are even times when you can speed up to 2X the speed. This works well with videos that have slow speakers in them. I must be one of them. I talk real slow and you can see that in my videos. You will want to increase it up to 2.0.
When you develop the habit of speeding up YouTube videos, you’ll be surprised by the amount of time you’ve saved. When is this particularly useful?
I should say popular answers would be for when you are OBLIGATED to watch videos such as conference talks, fan videos, training videos, and for when you need to go back to past videos for reference. To some, this may be a minor feature, but to me, there are instances where I speed up YouTube videos and notice a dramatic difference.
