Watching videos faster

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

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).

I was really happy to find out that this feature is not only available on YouTube, but also in native video players in Firefox.
