Wondering is their any signs of crunchyroll adding a times 1.5 or times 2 speed setting on the player?.
At the moment their are tons of anime I am not watching due to their speed, and for me almost all anime would be better at 1.25 speed.

Go go on YouTube then.

I'm pretty sure that's a loophole that people need to cut from society.

Indeed this is an option, except when it is not an option do to various reasons, however I do use other anime websites to get these speeds on anime that particularly need it. However doesn't it seem a bit odd that this isn't in crunchyroll's player? Could be technical, could be lack of visible demand or just demand for that matter.

However I don't under stand what you mean by your last sentence, in any way, shape or form.
But in case my motive is in question, I get home from work at 8 pm and considering cooking, cleaning, general chores, and exercise I have about 40 minutes of spare time and I wouldn't spend the whole thing on crunchyroll.

If this isn't that hard to implement, why not? I am hopeful that their are others who have very little time who would greatly enjoy this, and that our combined willingness to voice our desire brings crunchyroll to take action.

It doesn't seem odd to me. Aside from YouTube, how many mainstream sites have you seen with this feature? Does Neftlix have it? Hulu, Amazon Prime Video? None do that I've noticed.

This could even run afoul of contract terms. Most creators don't take kindly to their content being altered, and changing the playback speed certainly does, just as much as stretching 4:3 material out to fill a 16:9 display or cropping it off to do the same does. It may be what some people prefer, but I could see it being an issue for some creators.

[redacted], what I use if a show is too slow(I guess no longer), does and I don't use netflix, hulu, crave or that last service I never heard of, because they lack this function, especially considering how long movies are now.

In regards to the second sentence, that is interesting, how would that be governed? What would differentiate this from having the ability to jump forwards on the video, to control the audio, or even pause. These are player based, and they can all alter the product, watching a show muted, or skipping an entire scene changes the experience far more than watching it `.25 times faster.

That site is an illegal pirate streaming site. If they're already stealing content, they won't care about preserving content, like not allowing various playback speeds.

Good to know, sorry about that, I'll be sure to find a different site. Do you know any that have a fast forward function?
Until then I will just stick with faster anime.

Not that I'm aware of, besides anything that's happened to be made available legally on YouTube.

A lot of it has to do with established practices. The ability to control the audio even predates television. The ability to pause, rewind, or fast forward dates back to at least the first VCR, so when online players became feasible, they replicated that experience, and sometimes added skip forward and/or back controls that already existed on DVRs that came into existence around the same time online video began to become practical.
