One of the features that video sites like YouTube, DailyMotion, Google Video and such lack is the ability to control the playback speed of the video. There is only the play button, no fast forward. Often we wish that YouTube provided some controls to slow down the speed so that we could watch a particularly elaborate dance move or an intelligent magic trick. Also, sometimes we would like to hurry up the video speed to skip the boring part and save time.
MySpeed from Enounce is a free plugin for YouTube, and in fact, any flash video site that gives you this functionality. MySpeed sits on the system tray and whenever you visit a YouTube video page, or any page that contains a flash video, it shows a little slider. Using the slider you can change the video playback speed.
The MySpeed plugin works on most browsers including IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Google Chrome.
FYI – Windows Media Player 11 (and 10?) offers playback speed, too.
1. right click top of player
2. click “View”
3. click “Enhancements”
4. click “Play Speed Settings”
Yet another software you might mention is Video Surgeon. This software has the ability to change the speed of the playback, zoom-in, and to set loop points so you can play a section repeatedly. It also automatically detects the URL's of videos playing on Youtube and thousands of other sites and helps you download them.
Windows media player does not allow you to play videos slower if they are youtube downloads.
