Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking
How do I change video speed online for free?
Creators need a free browser-based video editor with controllers to change video speed online for free. Incremental increases in the speed settings will gradually make videos faster, while decreases make videos slower. Many online tools support this setting, but Kapwing is a popular choice for creators. Kapwing allows you to quickly make hyperspeed and slo-mo videos for free without downloading software to your device.
How do I speed up a video for free?
To speed up videos for free, creators upload video container formats to a free video editor, then increase speed controllers. Speed controllers give creators control over the output. The greater the speed multiplier, the faster the video duration, ideal for timelapse videos. Kapwing is a trusted tool for creators that makes it easy to speed up a video for free. Simply upload a video, choose a speed, then watch your video accelerate.
How do I convert video to slow motion online?
Creators convert videos to slow motion online by uploading videos to a browser-based editor that decelerates content for free. With the video container format uploaded, creators decrease speed controllers to slow down the playback speed. The outcome is a video playing a significantly slower frame rate. Slow motion videos are commonly used to create captivating videos for social media and advertisements.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
