For busy professionals trying to stay on top of their learning and development, the task of watching recorded webinars or trainings can be a daunting one. But with the help of the Chrome plugin “Video Speed Controller”, you can speed through these and other online videos in no time. Let’s take a look at how this plugin works and why it can be so helpful for busy professionals.

How Can Video Speed Controller Help You?

One of the most significant benefits of using Video Speed Controller is the flexibility it offers in controlling the speed of the videos. Viewers can speed up videos to quickly watch through tutorials or lectures, saving time and allowing them to cover more material in a shorter period, making it perfect for busy professionals or students who need to acquire new skills or knowledge quickly. On the other hand, by slowing down videos, viewers can better understand complex concepts or procedures, particularly when watching videos on technical or scientific subjects, where the presenter may be speaking quickly or using jargon. This allows for a smoother understanding and absorption of the information being presented. Most videos can be comfortably watched at 2.5x to 3x speed depending on the speaker.
