YouTube - Hurry Up

https://youtu.be/nxI5Si9PEu8
We never have enough time. Even a short video takes too long
Why not speed things up, it's quite simple.
Play YouTube videos or parts of them at double time.

Very handy Bob, this is something that will save me some considerable time.  I have just been using the mouse to advance the progress but you completely skip ahead and frequently go back.  This way you can monitor the action and lift off when you hit something of direct interest to you.

I have been following the War in Ukraine and some of the youtube channels, clips can be quite long.

Happy to help. I use this also for longer videos. I always make the time for the shorter ones. :)

Unfortunately this doesn't appear to work on Reddit only YouTube, but really helps skim view.
