Mandy has the patience of a Monk and watches more TV in the same amount of time. Together we can finish an entire Game of Thrones in one 40 minute sitting. That extra 20 minutes? Homework, Exercise, Family Time, or… More Game of Thrones 🙂
More jokes, more laughs, more drama, more suspense – same time.
Like an assembly line, if we increase the speed of the line, we will see more completed.
Same jokes, same plot, and at 10% faster – you wont notice a difference.
Speed up your media player by using a playback of 1.1x speed or higher.
60 minute TV show
Speed up 1.1x
60 minutes/1.1 = ~54 Minutes.
6 Minutes saved, every time you watch.
1.3x speed is my standard, but I’ve watched really long movies at 1.5x speed. Didn’t have to stop to hit the bathroom. Watched the whole way through -no intermission. Wouldn’t that be nice?
I suggest using 1.1x speed for a while, taste how great 6 minutes a day – at no loss to you is. Wouldn’t it be great to sleep in another 6 minutes? Or have extra time to get ready in the morning?
Youtube is great for this, given the variety of content. Documentaries, cartoons, people jumping from high places.
VLC is my go to for watching movies I have on my computer. DVDs or Files, VLC makes saving time easy.
Netflix takes an extra step, but the time savings will be well worth it.
Thanks Haley for this request, you will be saving other people literally thousands of hours of time.
Even if it takes you 20 minutes to figure it out how to get your playback faster – you will recoup 24 minutes that within watching four, 1 hour TV shows.
It wont take you 20 minutes 🙂
Protip: Closed Caption is amazing, and will allow you to conquer great speeds.
