Smart playback controls for web videos in Safari.

iPhone / iPad

One set of controls.
In one spot.
For web videos everywhere.

Change speed, save time

Adjust video speed from 0.5× to 2.0× – in fine 0.05 increments, so it's just the right speed for you, saving you time. How much time? Even at a modest speed of 1.2×, a one hour video takes only 50 minutes to watch.

Jump ± 10 seconds

What was just said? Jumping back 10 seconds is gold in those moments. Likewise, jumping forward 10 seconds makes it super easy to skip short segments.


It's amazing in how many different places play and pause buttons for videos are placed on websites. With Vidimote, at least one play/pause button is now always in the same spot.

More ways to watch and enjoy

On many sites, Vidimote gives you additional options to watch web videos: in picture-in-picture mode, fullscreen - or by sending it to AirPlay targets.

Better times

Remaining time in Vidimote takes the video speed into account: what is shown is the actual time remaining.

For live streams, Vidimote shows the approximate clock time for the current stream position, making it a lot easier to find f.ex. the beginning of a show when using time shifting.

Catch up with live streams

Late to a live stream, but time shifting is supported?

Depending on how late you are, consider watching the time shifted part at a higher speed.

When you caught up and the stream comes back to live, Vidimote will automatically change speed to 1.0×.

Results as of September 22nd, 2021. Some of the websites only offer web videos on iPads and refer to native apps on iPhones. Due to the possibility of changes to websites and browsers, compatibility is subject to change without notice.
