  2. On the Right side of your screen, three dots appear, and click on that.
  3. A drop-down list appears, go to the ‘more tools option’ and click on the ‘developer options’
  4. A coding screen rises on the side of the main screen.
  5. It has 4 rubrics on top named, ‘Elements, Console, Sources and Network’
  6. Go to the Console window and type the following code: $(‘video’).playbackRate=4
  7. This code will automatically increase the video’s speed by 4 times and one can thus enjoy their screening.
  8. If the speed by 4 times, doesn’t suffice you, you can just enter 8 in place of 4 in the aforementioned code in the same, Console window. $(‘video’).playbackRate=8
  9. You can even reduce the speed by entering the command value of your choice until 16.
