Controller Vimeo video playback rate in Chrome
Sometimes, it is nice to watch long videos at a faster playback rate. Time is money is almost a greater force than knowledge is power. This post expands on another from Mihai Parparita.
- Get the Playback Rate Chrome extension.
- Start the video playing.
- Right click on the video and select a rate. (can be tricky)
This part is tricky as it doesn’t always work due to some weirdness. Right click around near the bottom of the video. Sadly this seems a random trial and error for me.
Trying to change the rate of an embedded video? Try these steps…
Right click on the video and view frame source.
Copy the video ID. Heck grab the bit I highlighted and open a new tab.
Remove the /video part of the URL and hit Enter. you’ve got yourself a proper Vimeo link.
Go down the Simple Path above doing the right click above the scrubber control trick I mentioned above and you should see the Playback Rate UI from the Chrome extension.
