I am very excited to share a nice and free resource that I think you are going to love because it can literally help you save lots of time when you watch educational videos online. The tool is called MySpeed plugin and you can get it at no cost at this website www.enounce.com/myspeed.php

I am sure some of you are going to love this tool as much as I do (it is good for any project). It is free and  you can download it right now and use it to your advantage.

You can download the tool absolutely free of charge. Once you’re on their website you will see a big line at the top that says “Watch YouTube Faster With MySpeed”. But after I’ve tested the application it does not have to be only YouTube videos. Pretty much any online video can be controlled with this nifty tool.

Here is what you should do. Once you’ve downloaded the application on your computer (available both for Windows XP and Vista), then go ahead and install it (takes less than half a minute). And it is simple and self-explanatory. You don’t need to do anything else but follow the installation instructions. Once you get it installed on your computer whenever you watch online video you will be able to control the speed (faster, slower or at original speed).

Let’s for example go to YouTube right now and find an educational video to test the tool. So I type “physics lecture” in the search field (I am not interested in physics … it is just an example).

The first video that comes up at the top of the search results grabs my attention as the video has been viewed more than 70,000 times and has a 5 star rating quality (not bad). So as soon as I click on the video to watch, our application starts up in the form of showing this neat slider, which you should use to control a speed of the playing video.

If you want to play a video at the original speed leave it as it is at 1.0x However, if you think that the lecturer talks too slowly for you you can make it play faster by moving the slider forward to adjust the speed appropriate for your viewing/comprehension. Normally, I use 1.5 to speed up the viewing. I must say in most cases increasing the speed to 1.5x does not reduce the quality of comprehension.

Let me know what you think about this tool. Write me your comments. Any feedback is appreciated.
