If you use MX Player for playing your videos in Android then know that there are three ways to change the playback speed of the videos playing on the screen from 25% to 400%. The easiest method is to use a gesture that is dragging up/down two fingers on the screen. Method two is from the Options > Play > Speed. The final method is at the ⋮ > Tools > Settings > Player > Default Playback Speed which will set a playback speed that will stay until you change it.

Three methods to change playback speed in MX Player for Android:

Method 1: Two Finger Gesture

When a video is playing, use two fingers to tap and hold on the screen. You can pause the video. Drag those two fingers towards the top to increase the playback speed gradually. Drag them downwards to decrease the playback speed. A percentage value will be shown on the screen.
