Increase Video Playback Speed on Netflix

Like some other people on the internet I was frustrated that I couldn’t speed up the playback speed of Netflix videos like I got used to on YouTube.

With this little peace of code one can easily increase the playback speed of the main video:

document.getElementsByTagName('video')[0].playbackRate = 1.2

Turns out it is not as generally useful as increasing podcast playback speeds, though.
While speedier dialogues are great, the unnatural fast body movements at higher speeds distract me a lot.
