I am searching for any app, tool, plugin or anything of that sort, which could help me to view YouTube vedios faster than the normal speed, like 2, 3, 4 x normal playback speed.

I cetrainly did my home work of searching the Internet and I have got below options:

  1. Download and play using VLC player, which is time consuming…
  2. Use HTML5, support for limited vedios not all are HTML5 enabled.
  3. Enoumce’s Myspeed, which can be used only for Windows and Mac, and not Linux and Ubuntu

I hope you can help me with some kind of app that can allow me to do this easily on Linux!

I appreciate your help!

    You don't need to download the YouTube video to play it. Just stream the video by going to Media>Open Network Stream and paste URL of YouTube video there and click Play. While the video is streaming, you can change the playback speed as you want.
