It's very nice that http://www.youtube.com/html5 allows to change video speed.
Hover on 1.5x is hard to listen speech. 1.25x usually very popular option of educational content.

For future reference: on YouTube page with HTML5 video in JS console type:

document.getElementsByTagName("video")[0].playbackRate = 1.25

to change the playback rate.

When you're on a YouTube page turn on Developer Tools console - you can do it by pressing "Command - Option - J" on Mac or "Control - Shift - J" on Windows/Linux.

Then just paste:

document.getElementsByTagName("video")[0].playbackRate = 1.25

and press enter. That's all. You can test it with a higher rate (e.g. 2 or 3), to see if it works.

It works only for HMTL5 videos, not for Flash ones. If you right-click on a video and see "About HTML5" instead of "About Adobe Flash Player..." then it's HTML5 video.

Hope this helps

Is there a way to do this when the YouTube player is embedded such as the ones found on udacity.com?
Re: HTML5 player needs 1.25x speed. Szymon Nowak 10/18/12 1:25 AM
Yup, but you need to do one more thing first.

On Udacity pages the video player is in an iframe. So after you open Developer Tools console, you have to  change the current frame.  Here's how to do it:

At the bottom of Developer Tools console there a bar with "<top frame>" button. Click it and select "video-view( www.youtube.com )". Now you can use the same code as before to change the playback rate:

document.getElementsByTagName("video")[0].playbackRate = 1.25

I would like to listen at x1.75 speed, so perhaps continuous speed slider would be better solution?
