Playback speed


As air video a way to playback at 1.3 ou 1.5. Etc could be a huge enhancement


** mod edit **

Please discuss here.

It’s on the list of upcoming features although will be post 5.8


This feature on ATV and iOS with smb and plex are killers feature for me !!!

and Post 5.8 takes us far far away :wink:

Just FYI, you can get a feel for what new and great ideas are in the works with Infuse on the first post of this thread,

Yes please – variable speed is unfortunately a dealbreaker for me.

I’m using VLC on iOS purely because of this, but it’s very clunky compared to Infuse. I’ll happily pay for pro if it supported faster speeds (At least: 1.5x and 2x)

Yes, please please please make variable playback speed a higher priority to get it deployed SOON!!!

Variable playback speed is a must for me too :frowning: I hope you get to them ASAP.


I made a post about variable playback speeds six months ago and still haven’t heard anything other than “it’s in development.” Are there any other apps you are using for this? I would be open to trying another app until it finally gets added to Infuse.

VLC supports it.

Yes I know, but with VLC the audio seems to get messed up when I go beyond 1.1x or 1.2x, even on the newest iPad Pro.

But even 1.1 or 1.2 is better than 1 for MANY situations/videos!

Yeah that’s a good point, I just don’t like having to choose between easy to use and clunky but functional. I guess I’ll give VLC another try until they update Infuse

I’d love the variable playback speed too!

I’m about ready to switch back to VLC which DOES support speeding up the playback. We’ve REALLY been waiting far too long for this essential feature.

I think for now the best hope that I have of truly getting this feature is if I buy a Surface Go and load VLC onto it. Even on the iPad Pro playback speeds can’t increase TOO MUCH otherwise the audio goes out. If this app had variable playback speed it would be the last video player I would EVER need, but as of now it’s not yet there. I really wish we could get some kind of an update about when this feature will ever happen. Will it be in a future version that I have to pay for?

Well, we’re at version 5.9 and yet InFuse STILL<\strong> doesn’t have variable playback speeds.

I’m now having to use other products more and more since I’ve got many videos that really need to be played back at “higher” speed.

PLEASE, come on Firecore… get with it!!!

At least it’s on the planned list. Upcoming Features (updated 2/23/21)

Other features may be in higher in demand or be faster to implement and or require less coding to add so it’s a waiting game.

The planned list… Ha! That thread’s last post is two years old.

Come on… really?

And if you’d take the time to read it you’d notice it was last updated 2/15/2019 on the first post.

Hey, I’m still watching this thread, I still haven’t totally lost hope, but lack of variable playback speeds will always be a consistant complaint I have about this otherwise great video player. Extremely disappointed that an app that costs this much doesn’t have such a feature.
