  1. A few years back I had the same itch. I solved it with making a Bookmarklet that allowed text entry for the speed you wanted. 0.5 — 2.5 etc. Assuming the code below doesn’t get wiped out, you just put this into the address field of a bookmark. Save it and go to YT and then open the bookmarklet. I opens a dialog and you enter the numeric value to speed up or slow down your currently playing video. Should work in Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

    javascript:(function()%7Bvar%20result%20%3D%20prompt(%22Enter%20a%20numeric%20value%3A%202.5%2C%205%20etc.%22)%3Bvid%20%3D%20document.getElementsByClassName(%22video-stream%20html5-main-video%22)%5B0%5D%3Bvid.playbackRate%20%3D%20result%7D)()
