There is a lot of entertaining content on YouTube. Sometimes it can be hard keep up with your favorite YouTubers. Or, maybe you want to watch more content in less time.

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id={channel_id}


where {channel_id} is the channel's ID. You cannot put custom YouTube IDs here.

1. Look for the source code. Neatnik will help you view the source code if you do not know how to.
2. Hit Ctrl + F (or Command + F) and look for rssUrl. The URL after the colon for rssUrl is the RSS feed for that YouTube channel.

The highlighted part is the URL you want to copy.

One custom YouTube ID example is Pewdiepie. His channel URL is: https://www.youtube.com/user/PewDiePie. “PewDiePie” is not his channel ID. It is his custom ID. His channel ID can be found by looking in the source code.

## Watching at Higher Speeds

The most obvious tip is to just raise the video speed. Normally, I would recommend people to raise it to 1.1x speed as it's difficult to tell the speed increase. Unfortunately, YouTube has no such option, so it is best to raise it to 1.25x and slowly increase the speed from there.

I will give you with one warning. Watching at higher speeds may diminish the overall viewing experience. It may also make it more difficult to consume content at 1x speed because it will feel slow.

### Calculating How Much Time You Will Save

Watching at higher speeds will allow you to save a lot of time. You can calculate that by:

1. Turning your desired speed into a fraction
2. Finding the reciprocal of that fraction (flip the numerator and denominator)
3. Multiplying by how many seconds long a video is
4. Subtract the total length of the video by the answer you got in #3.

Example:

1. 1.25 = 5/4
2. 5/4 >> 4/5
3. 60 * 4/5 = 48. 60 – 48 = 12. Therefore, you save 12 seconds for every minute you watch at 1.25x speed.
