Playback Speeds

Last Updated: Jan 29, 2015 07:40PM EST
This article is valid as of Downcast for iOS v2.8.27 and Downcast for Mac v1.1.6. For older versions click here.

Downcast supports several playback speeds and allows a default speed to be set globally as well as per-podcast subscription.

The podcast episode player view contains a play speed button that, when tapped, will cycle through all available playback speeds. Tapping and holding the play speed button will present a list of available speeds for quickly selecting another speed.

Additionally, the speeds that are selected when tapping the playback speed button can be configured both globally and per-podcast now.

Supported Speeds
  • 0.50x
  • 1.00x
  • 1.25x
  • 1.50x
  • 2.00x
  • 2.25x
  • 2.50x
  • 2.75x
  • 3.00x

Where is 1.75x?
Unfortunately, the Apple framework we use for playback does not currently support 1.75x. We don't know why but if it ever does support this speed, we will add support for it.
