SpeedMaster is a free Google Chrome Extension that allows you to adjust the playback speed for each individual YouTube channel. Once you modify the speed of a certain YouTube video, the settings are saved for that particular YouTube channel and will be used when you play any video from that channel in the future.

Many YouTube users prefer listening to audio books, podcasts etc on YouTube at an accelerated speed of 1.5X or more to save time. SpeedMaster is a great tool for such viewers and listeners and can also have a variety other use cases also.

I tested SpeedMaster for YouTube and observed that it works fine. It is a very handy tool to adjust the playback speed of any YouTube video. Since it saves the speed settings for individual YouTube channels, you need not adjust the speed of any video in that channel when you play it once again. This results in saving a lot of time especially when you listen to audio books and podcast channels.
