Get through a recorded webinar faster

April 4, 2020

Tip for getting through a long recorded webinar:

  1. Check if there’s a setting for speed (YouTube definitely has this).
  2. Change the playback speed to 1.25 or 1.5 times normal speed, or whatever is comfortable to you.

The voice and the visuals will be much faster, and you can get through an hour-long recorded webinar in ~30 mins. This is particularly useful when the presenter speaks slowly, or spends a lot of time on one slide.

Obviously, this doesn’t work in a live webinar, just a recorded one, or YouTube videos etc.

  1. I use 4K Video Downloader (or 4k YouTube to MP3 if I just want sound): then I can view as I wish using the options of the MPC-HC video player I use. All three are free. Using Youtube options such as speed and sub-titles is also good practice – sometimes speech quality on videos and webinars is not clear or too fast.

    Similarly if you use Skype you can opt to have sub-titles when the connection is variable or the conversation includes lack of clarity or foreign words.

    Hope this helps :-)
