How to Change Video Playback Speed on Twitter

Twitter is very popular social networking app for everyone. Using Twitter, not only we can send tweets to our friends and family members, but we can also directly message (DM) celebrities, politicians and other important people. Even if you are not tweeting or sending direct messages, you can use Twitter to stay in touch with whatever is happening in the world. We can follow some newspapers or news channels on Twitter and they will keep our timeline populated with all the latest news along with the video clips.

When we are watching some of these videos, we do not always want to watch the whole video or want to quickly go through the video. Similarly, there are some interesting videos that we want to watch at a slow frame rate.

Here is how we can change the video playback speed of videos watched on Twitter on your smartphone:

  1. On the Twitter app on your smartphone find a video and tap on it to play it.
  2. On the video playback screen, tap on the cogwheel icon near the top-right corner.
  3. You can now select the playback speed from 0.25x, 0.5x, 0.75x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, or 2x. Depending on the speed factor selected, your video will play faster or slower.Twitter Video Playback

If you use Twitter on your desktop web browser, then you can follow these steps:

  1. Visit Twitter and find a video that you wish to watch.
  2. As you are playing the video, click on the cogwheel icon from the bar that appears when you hover the mouse cursor over the video.
  3. From the menu that appears, you can select a playback speed for that video from 0.25x to 2x.Twitter Video Playback

If you change the playback speed of one video on Twitter, then it is not permanently going to change the speed for all the videos on Twitter.
