Playback speed option on YouTube videos

Would it be possible to make the playback speed option available on YouTube videos that are embedded in the apps? This is possible if the video is played in a browser, even on smartphones. We have an app with sign language videos and for the deaf it’s good if they can slow the videos down a bit, if needed.

Any comments on this? This is very important for Sign language videos and hopefully shouldn’t be too hard to implement?


Videos in SAB are embedded into the HTML displaying in the main part of the window. Online videos are inserted as an iframe and embedded videos are inserted using HTML video tag.

Doing some searching, I have found:

@richard maybe these would work for SAB if we provide some UI to initiate these changes?


Thanks for looking at that!
