Nope! I am not going to teach you to watch or read or whatever faster. Simply, Youtube has started their HTML5 trial, through which you can select how fast you want to watch their videos. They have speeds as follows: 1/4 Speed, 1/2 Speed, Normal Speed, 1.5x Speed and 2x Speed.
All you need to do is visit the Youtube HTML5 Trial page and click on the link that says “Join the HTML5 Trial.” Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to select the speed of the video you are watching. You probably have to be logged in to Youtube. I haven’t tested that part!
