Instance Property

rate

The current playback rate.

Declaration

var rate: Float { get set }

Discussion

A value of 0.0 pauses the video, while a value of 1.0 plays the current item at its natural rate. Rates other than 0.0 and 1.0 can be used if the associated player item returns true for the AVPlayerItem properties canPlaySlowForward or canPlayFastForward. Negative rate value ranges are supported if the player item returns true for the canPlayReverse, canPlaySlowReverse, and canPlayFastReverse properties.
