Suggestion: Add Playback Speed option in SharePoint video player

Valued Contributor

I am a user using MS Teams for some time and I see that my meeting recordings are being saved on SharePoint where it plays the video on its own video player. I like it from all aspects except one that it does not have the video playback speed feature which can help me to go through the content at a faster rate without skipping it or going at a slower rate for a better understanding of what happened in the meeting. I would like to see the playback options same as YouTube going from 0.5x up to 2x.

Hello, this is coming and is currently a part of the feature gap related to the change going from Stream (classic) to Stream (SharePoint). You can read more about it here, the link is directed to the roadmap specifically


Microsoft 365 Roadmap | Microsoft 365 (Variable playback speed (0.5-2x) for Microsoft Teams meeting recordings)


That's amazing to hear. Thanks for telling :) 


Hello Christian,

Has this feature come out yet or will soon? It says the release is September.

Thank you

Hello, usually the month is a "scheduled release date", meaning it's quite common that the implementation is pushed forward. When it changes from "In development" to "Rolling out" then you know it's about to hit your tenant too.

@ChristianJBergstrom thanks for your responce.

Would you mind doing it kinda faster?:) Our school uses sharepoint for the recorded classroom videos and it takes too much time to watch them in normal speed.

@Marallou Hey I found a way to change speed now. From the SharePoint video, right-click and you should be given an option to "Show All Controls". Then there is a vertical 3-dot menu on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. When you click on that, it gives you an option to change the speed. 

@Marallou Actually they haven't managed to update this one so..


  • Targeted Release: We expect to begin the targeted release rollout in early August and be fully rolled out by approximately early September
  • General Availability: We expect to begin the GA rollout in early September and expect that release to be fully rolled out by approximately late September

In other words, if you can't use it now it won't take long.

That's how you can do through the in-browser controls on any website.
It's the 1st of November and as far as I can see the feature is not available. The roadmap still says that it is expected in October. I was wondering, what is the actual date of release?
Thank you
Status is "rolling out" meaning it's happening right now, and when changed to "launched" all tenants will have the feature. Not possible to get an exact date.
