Hi usually on players when you set a playback speed it doesn't reset after pausing the video but on quicktime this happens does anyone have a solution?? (I know that you can change playback speed using option key + clicking on fast forward button)
Here is an AppleScript code that will make QuickTime Player remember the playback speed of a video after pausing it. Go to Script Editor and paste the following code into a new document, replacing # with the desired playback speed.
tell application "QuickTime Player" set theWindows to windows set win1 to item 1 of theWindows tell win1 set visible to false set visible to true set index to 1 end tell tell document 1 repeat while miniaturized of win1 is false if playing and rate is 1 then set the rate to 1.5 as real end if delay 1.0E-3 end repeat end tell end tell
The playback speed ("#") can be any real decimal number (i.e., 1.5). Values larger than 1 will speed the video up, and values between 0 and 1 will slow the video down. A negative value will cause the video to play backwards.
Note: The audio will drop out at speeds less than/equal to -2 or greater than/equal to 2.
Press Command+S (or File > Save) to save the script in a location where you can easily access it, and then open the script and run it (press the Play button at the top) whenever you need it. You can pause and play the video as many times as you want, and it will play at the selected speed each time, as long as you do not minimize the QuickTime Player window. You can resize and move the window, and also open other applications in the foreground, though. When you are done, click the Stop button (to left of Play button) and you can close the script.
It can be a little buggy at times, but this is the only method I have found to remedy this issue.
