Overview

Control speed of the youtube playback using keyboard. Press '+' to increase and '-' to decrease the playback speed.

[ Added functionality for the extension to work with all html5 videos.

It's a great extension! the only thing I don't like is that now on youtube, clicking + or - not only changes the subtitles' size, it also changes the speed of the video. and there's no way in the extension to disable that keyboard shortcut. would really appreciate the option to disable that key binding.

This is the best extension I've ever used! I use it almost every time on the computer. Works exactly as described. It's probably saved me hours of time over the years.
