Yes, it's not that useful for movies or TV Shows but for some people would be useful watching lectures, knowledge base series and things like that.  You get a speaker who goes at a snails pace so you tweak the speed a bit to move faster.

I'm sure others have additional uses for slowing or speeding up video but that's the only time I personally use anything like this.

I tend to watch stuff or listen to stuff as i do something else, like play a video game. I think there are certain circumstances that i find myself in where i would watch movies and tv shows at a 2x speed or at least 1.5. I have conditioned my brain by listening to audiobooks and podcasts at faster speeds (up to 3x) and i now almost exclusively watch any youtube video at least 1.5x. so i think this feature would get used a lot with movies and tv shows. some may not use it, i know i certainly would. I am not familiar with the emby codebase or how this type of feature would get implemented but I am a developer and if getting this feature required me to spend some nights and weekends helping where i can. i'd love to contribute. if that's possible please let me know.

I agree fully with audiiobooks, podcasts as that's sort of the type of thing I was talking about.  Who knows, I might even do this for shows or movies when I using them only for background noise while working.  It would be a useful feature to have regardless of how each of us use it.

One of the "stumbling blocks" I'd see possibly happening is someone speeding up videos that need transcoding and not keeping up and getting stuttering. But that's bridge to cross later.

"Hey doc it hurts when I do this".  "Well then I'd advise you to stop doing that". :)

This will be in Emby Server 4.5. You'll be able to use the controls in the video player to set the playback speed.

That's great! Thanks Luke.

Presumably this would cover audio playback as well as video?

@Luke Any chance this will enable FFWD/RWD improvements to allow for a non-skip style version on apps that use skip only navigation?

Something along the lines of one press of FFWD gets 2x realtime, a second press gets 3x, a third 5x (rates are meant as an example only).  Play or fourth press returns to realtime playback.

Note IF this changes enables it, THEN I will open a feature request in the specific apps.  No sense asking for something that is not possible...

Perhaps, but initially it will be in a speed menu option under the settings cog in the video player.
