Video Speed Control extension lets you easily control the playback speed for all HTML5 video elements.

To work with this add-on, please open a webpage that contains HTML5 video elements. Then, play the desired video element and open the toolbar popup UI. Within the UI, adjust the playback speed and then click on the - Play - button (footer section). The playback speed will be changed according to the value shown in the popup. Please note that this add-on does NOT change the speed automatically. You need to open the toolbar popup UI and press the - Play - button each time (needs user-action). Moreover, every time a page is reloaded, the add-on needs a user action again. The minimum playback speed is 0.07x and the maximum speed is 16x. The min and max values are according to the HTML5 standards.

If you have a feature request or found a bug to report, please fill the bug report form on the add-on's homepage (
Risk impact

Video Speed Control requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Video Speed Control has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
