I use Watch2Gether to watch Twitch and primarily YouTube, and something I really would like support for is playback speed. Both of these services have these options for their player, but the Youtube’s embedded code used for W2G hides the buttons to use the W2G controls so there is no way to access this without console scripting I imagine. I can sync with others while watching Twitch with a faster playback speed, but all members have to apply the change manually.
I would love to see official support where playback speed can be changed by any users with video control, where this change is applied to all viewers.
I understand that not all video services provide playback speed, so I would suggest hiding the button when the video host doesn’t support it.
Here are some API links I looked up, idk if you actually need them or not, but I figured I’d drop them here.
For Twitch, I couldn’t find anything, but I would think it’s possible but it is a fairly recent update to Twitch so maybe the API page isn’t updated.
With that said, I want to thank you for making this website. It really makes watching videos with friends possible no matter where you are.
