Is there any way to change the speed of youtube videos on Roku tv?

Jump to solution

Sometimes I speed up youtube videos to get through them faster.

Is there any way to do this when watching tv?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the inquiry.

For more information about that channel's features and functionality, you'll want to contact YouTube TV support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. 

You can reach YouTube TV support here: https://support.google.com/youtubetv/?hl=en#topic=7071745

Thanks,

You can adjust the playback speed by clicking on the little gear shape near the CC (closed caption) box.

I'm not aware of any playback speed adjustment available in YouTube. I doubt if the YTTV version is any different.

No such setting using YouTube on my Ultra 4640. They've recently released a YT update, and there's no such icon to be found. Perhaps YTTV has a different interface.

This does not work.  There is no speed available.

I have TCL Roku TVs.  There have been YouTube updates, and on my newer TCL tv, I now have the speed setting option in YouTube.  However, on my older TCL tv, even though I've been checking for YouTube updates, I still do not have the feature on that TV.
