How to Play/Watch YouTube Videos in Slow Motion

YouTube is one of the biggest video portal fetching millions of views daily. Now if you have to search for any video like latest movie trailers, latest clip, video songs or video tutorials then YouTube is the first place to go. Sometimes we want to play YouTube video in slow motion, because the video tutorial you are watching is too fast to understand and the only way is to play that YouTube video in slow motion for better understanding.

Fortunately we have just two methods by which you canplay YouTube videos in slow motion with desired speed. The first method is an integrated in YouTube itself, but is a less know feature because it’s not available to every viewer by default. In the second method we will be using the ever popular VLC media player streaming service to play YouTube videos in slow motion. So without wasting much of your time let us see how to watch YouTube videos in slow motion online and offline.

Play YouTube Videos in Slow Motion Method 1#: YouTube HTML5 Video Player As I said earlier YouTube HTML5 player is not available by default for the viewers, but you can get it easily by following the below link. Once you visit the link click Request the HTML5 player and instantly your default video player will be changed to HTMNL5 player. Now search and open any video, click on Gear icon (bottom right) and choose speed. Below is the same in steps by step procedure.

Step 1:Go to youtube html5

Step 2:Click onRequest the HTML5 player button and wait for few seconds until you see the button has been changed to Use the default player


Step 3: Now search for any video and open it

Step 4: Now click onGear icon(bottom right)

Step 5:Next click on Speed, then select your video playing speed from 0.5 to 0.25 and you are done!

I would recommend you to use 0.5 speed, because when I chose 0.25 the video was playing in slow motion but I was not able hear the sound. You can also play video in fast motion by following the same steps, but instead of selecting 0.5 or 0.25 select 1.5 or 2 to increase the speed.

Method 2#: VLC Media Player

If you don’t want to use first method then proceed with second method, but unlike inbuilt YouTube HTML5 player we will use the ever popular VLC media player for this tedious task.

Step 1: Launch VLC media player on your PC

Step 2: Click on File, then open Stram

Step 3: Now paste your YouTube url and click on Play

Step 4: Now Click on Play back and adjust video speed according to you need These are two best ways to play YouTube videos in slow motion.
