How do you speed up a recorded video?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

To speed up a recorded video, you can follow these steps:

1. Ensure that you have an Android device running on version 5.0 or above. This feature is only available on newer Android versions.

2. Open the video that you want to speed up. You can do this by navigating to your video gallery or using a video player app.

3. Once you have the video open, tap on it once to bring up the playback controls. These controls usually appear at the bottom of the screen.

4. Look for the “More” option, which is typically represented by three vertical dots or lines. Tap on it to access additional settings and options.

5. In the list of options that appears, you should see an option called “Playback Speed” or something similar. Tap on it to proceed.

6. A new window will open, displaying the different playback speed options available for the video. These options may include 0.5x, 0.75x, 1x (normal speed), 1.25x, 1.5x, and 2x (double speed), among others.

7. Select the desired speed at which you want the video to play. For example, if you want the video to play at 1.5 times the normal speed, choose the 1.5x option.

8. Once you have selected the speed, the video will start playing at the chosen rate. You can now enjoy watching the video at a faster pace.

It’s important to note that speeding up a video can affect the overall viewing experience. The audio may sound distorted or higher pitched, and the visuals may appear slightly smoother but may also seem more fast-paced.

Additionally, not all video players or apps may have the option to change the playback speed. In such cases, you may need to explore different video player apps from the Google Play Store that offer this feature.

In my personal experience, I have found that speeding up videos can be useful in situations where I need to quickly review a recorded lecture or presentation. It allows me to save time while still understanding the content. However, it’s important to find a speed that is comfortable for you and doesn’t compromise comprehension.

Speeding up a recorded video is a simple process on Android devices running on version 5.0 or above. It can be a helpful feature for various scenarios, allowing you to watch videos at your desired pace.
