Youtube and playback speed, working on one...

Jump to solution

I have a roku in my bedroom

3920X - Roku Premiere

This one CAN control the speed in youtube.

 

I have another one

3900X - Roku Express

This one CANNOT

 

So... everything over 3920 can control the youtube speed?

 

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the posts.

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

You can reach Youtube support here: https://support.google.com/youtube/?hl=en#topic=9257498
 

Thanks,

Not necessarily. The higher the number doesn't necessarily mean better features.

For example, my 3810 can control speed. The Streaming Stick+ (3810) is a superior device to the Express (3900) and the Premiere (3920).

So, many times the higher the better, but certainly not always.

DB Dukes:

I have a 4660, s/w version 9.4.0-4210-46 and the YouTube channel I have shows Version 1.0 build 93000138 (when pressing the * button). After entering the YouTube channel, the YouTube App version is web_20210505_10_RC02.

That same app version shows on other Roku models, like the 3810, and the 3920, and shows on the YouTube LG TV app. On all of these the YouTube channel offers Playback Speed options.

But, on the 4660, as I described above, THERE IS NO PLAYBACK OPTION, even though it is the same App version web_20210505_10_RC02.

For anyone that has the 4660, and the YouTube channel loaded on it, please check and verify back here if you have the playback speed option or not, on your 4660 YouTube channel. That would be a great help.
