Lately I’ve been switching the playback speed for videos mostly to 1.25 or 1.5x. This way I manage to watch videos that I watch to learn something new in less time (and still understand everything). Especially with long videos this makes a difference. Is it only me who feels this way? I was really happy to find out that this feature is not only available on YouTube, but also in native video players in Firefox.

Especially since I now follow the Tagesschau as a video feed instead of the articles on a national news site (I wrote about that in German), this feature has become closer to my awareness. Videos also have the particular advantage that consumption is easier, viewing pictures is usually easier than reading text. 😅
