Increased Video Speed and Skip Forward feature

Is there any plan to increase the video speed up to 3x maybe an also to add a skip forward 10-15 seconds?!

I like the video-based platform learning but it goes a bit tedious and boring at times on the stuff I already know. I was hoping these features above can give it a more interactive feel.

Hey Ednalyn,

Thank you for your suggestions! As far as I'm aware, there are no plans to amend the current options on the video player. 2x is likely as fast as we'll offer and scrubbing forward on a video will be left to using the progress bar. This being said, I'll share this with our product team for their knowledge. We appreciate you taking the time to share this!

Please do add speed control to the video, The pace is so slow I honestly miss information because my mind wanders, I am used to listening at 2x. The first part of the video is so simple, that I could skip a lot of redundant information, if there was a skip function. I am listening because there is information I need, but some of it I don't. It would be nice to choose how I navigate the course.

I'd be all for a button that allows us to skip to the next quiz or code challenge, since I'm running through the introductory courses to ensure I have the prereqs lined up.

Or... even better... an assessment challenge that would peel away beginner courses as befits the subscriber most.
