How to Speed Up YouTube Videos? (2x, 3x, 4x and Faster!)

Is there a way of watching YouTube videos at higher than 2x speed?

Solution 1

  1. Go to the video.
  2. Press CTRL + SHIFT + J or COMMAND + OPTION + J to open the JavaScript Console.
  3. Copy and paste the following:
    1. document.getElementsByTagName(“video”)[0].playbackRate x
      1. x equals the speed you want; you can have it very specific, f.e. 1,15312 still works
  4. Close the Console with CTRL + SHIFT + J or COMMAND + SHIFT + C.
Example for YouTube 3X Speed
document.getElementsByTagName(“video”)[0].playbackRate = 3

Have fun. 🙂

Tips and tricks:

  • You have to do that for every new video, except when watching a playlist.
  • Videos with higher speed than “4” won’t have any sound.
  • This command works for ads too 😉
  • It definitely works on your desktop PC using Chrome.
  • Save a note with the command on your desktop.

Solution 2

Making a bookmark with:

javascript: r = prompt(“Enter Rate”); document.getElementsByClassName(“video-stream”)[0].playbackRate = parseFloat(r);

as the link allows you to choose your speed everytime. I personally make a couple different default ones with:

javascript: r = 4; document.getElementsByClassName(“video-stream”)[0].playbackRate = parseInt(r);

Replacing 4 with what I want. The first will allow non-integers like 1.5. The second only works with round numbers, aka 1,5,7 etc. I think it will not work above 15x though.
