On Windows, VLC's playback speed can be discovered on status bar, but the Mac version doesn't have a status bar. Where should I go to see the current playback speed?

On the Mac version of VLC, to see the playback speed, you have to click the Playback menu. It won't be shown on the default window.

You can also setup the OnScreenDisplay which will display playback speed changes, step forwards, step backwards and other changes during playback.

Go to VLC -> Preferences -> Subtitles/OSD -> Enable OSD.

Save settings and quit the vlc app so settings get applied.

  • This doesn't when playing audio without video, right? May 27, 2020 at 16:19
  • My experience is that this doesn't work on Mac 12.2.1 with VLC 3.0.16. My OSD is enabled, but I still don't see any indication when I change playback speed.
