Would you please consider adding the playback speed feature to the YouTube channel. Like it is on the Android mobile version of YouTube. Thank you, Chris

YouTube is the one that creates, provides, and maintains their Roku channel app. Roku just provides the platform to run it on. You should take your request to YouTube.

Me too.  But whether they do or not, they're the only ones that can do anything about it.

I sent YouTube a feedback about play back speed. Let's see what happens. Thank you, for idea.

Seems like the prevailing thought is that this has to be enabled by the app.  But I'm not sure that is the case.  Why couldn't there be a master setting, similar to the hidden bitrate menu, that sets the playback speed on all video at 1.25, 1.5, 1.75x, etc?  If that were the case, it would be transparent to the apps, and just do it at the system level.
