Video Speed Controller is a Google Chrome extension. This means that you need to have Google Chrome as your default browser in order to use the tool. However, I am sure there are similar types of tools for other browsers as well, so you can look for those if you are a Safari, Internet Explorer, or Firefox user.

Video Speed Controller allows you to speed up almost any type of video on the Internet. This is a great tool for lectures, classes, Youtube Videos, Netflix, etc. It is really great because it does not affect the video quality that much, and it allows you to speed up a video to as much as 3x. However, unless it is a really slow video, I am normally only watching on a speed between 1.5-2x. Still, if you are able to watch a video at 2x speed, this means that you can watch an hour video in 30 minutes, which can save a lot of time in the long run depending on how many videos you watch.

I know that there are many people who do not like to watch videos sped up, or they think that it is too difficult to understand; however, if you are a fan of listening to podcasts or audio formats sped up, I think that this extension is a must for videos. This is my favorite tool because unlike many other speed controllers, this extension also works on Netflix and HBO.

Video Speed Controller Recommendation Rating: 5

This post has now been updated to reflect a new ratings system that I have implemented, which is scored as follows:

1: Something worth checking out if you have time

2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone

3: Something worth prioritizing if interested

4: Something worth making time to check out

5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
