Jump to solution

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.

I can play in 2x in LG TVs, Android, Windows, Amazon Fire But not in Roku. It's easy for Roku to say that is a problem from Google, but I will not buy any other Roku products because ONLY them does not deliver the experience I expect.

FYI, the YT app for 4K/HDR-capable Rokus is now Speed enabled (.25x to 2X), so if you have a 4K/HDR model you should be able to use the Speed setting.

Roku doesn’t bother to update their software often enough. On my 4200x Roku 3 there’s been no update since June. 

software version 10.0.0, build:4209

Not for me.  I have a 4K-capable Roku and I can set it to 0.25x, 0.5x, etc., but the playback is always 1:1 speed.  What am I doing wrong?  Can anyone please help me?
