Add speed option for Youtube


It would be really helpful if we had the time scale option that Youtube has.


Thanks for your input! I’m not sure how this would work out when the play speed has to be synced to all members of a room. What would be a typical use case for this feature?


Me and my friends like to watch a lot of podcasts and long university lecture videos where it would really save us a lot of time if we could speed up the video when someone is talking slowly.


That’s for sure a very good use case :wink: I’ll have a look at the Youtube player documentation and check whether it’s possible to control the playback speed through the player API.


Ok thank you! Some people just talk so damn slowly :joy:


This would make a great feature indeed :+1:


Thanks for your feedback :slight_smile: YouTube’s API actually provides an option to control playback speed but I haven’t found the time yet to implement that…
