Truly variable rate video playback in YouTube

If you use the HTML5 player for YouTube, you can use the UI to increase the playback speed to 1.5 or 2.0.  While I do like my talking heads to talk a bit faster, I don't like them to take a full 50% faster.  This bookmarklet will allow you to set the playback speed to an arbitrary value.


Here's the easier to read version of the same code:

  var v = document.getElementsByTagName("video")[0];
  v.playbackRate = parseFloat(prompt("Playback rate? ["+v.playbackRate+"]"));

Drag this link to your bookmark bar to create a bookmark you can use on YouTube.
