How to make videos on YouTube (and more) play back at any speed

Do you like watching videos at high speed, or playing them back in ridiculous slow-mo? YouTube offers speeds from 0.25× and 2×…but is that just not enough for you?

This cool tool allows you to adjust the speed of YouTube, Netflix and Disney+ videos by choosing your desired speed in the box below, then adding then link as a bookmark (you can either right-click and add as bookmark or, if there's no option for that, drag it to your bookmarks bar). Click the bookmark when watching a video, and watch it magically speed up or slow down to your desired playback rate!

I wish I'd known about this sooner. I could have saved literally days of my life.

I want my video to play at ×

Bookmark this to make it happen: Video speed: 3×

Or, if it's easier, here is the raw JavaScript which you can add as a bookmark manually:

javascript:(()=>{document.getElementsByTagName('video')[0].playbackRate=3;})();

Alternatively, this version by Graham Harper prompts you for your requested speed each time (defaulting to the value you choose in the box above): Change video speed

javascript:(()=>{const speed = prompt('Enter playback speed',3);if(!speed)return;document.getElementsByTagName('video')[0].playbackRate=Number(speed);})();

Why not try it with this video?
