I’m assuming there are others out there who are used to listening to videos/podcasts at > 2x speed. I notice that Ivan’s course material only cap at 2x, but for anyone interest in listening at a quicker pace, here’s a little trick I use on Youtube videos that also works on Ivan’s course material:
- Click CTRL+SHIFT+J
- Copy paste this into the prompt:
document.getElementsByTagName(“video”).playbackRate = 3
Just change the “3” above to any speed that you’d like and TADA! Ultra-fast Ivan
I personally listen to videos at 3x speed to get an introductory overview of what will be covered. I then listen at 2-2.5x for the sections I’d like to revisit.
For those accustomed to listening to videos at 1x, jumping to 2x will be uncomfortable. If listening to videos at a quicker pace interests you, start with small increments and work your way up over time.
