    You can leave at anytime as well. Just thought those at this website might enjoy using this feature.
    Never played baseball, just a dad of someone that loves to play. So take any advice I post with a grain of salt.

    The only problem with viewing typical YouTube video in slo-mo is, if the original was recorded at 30 fps (usually the case) then the software tricks for "slowing" it down cannot fill in the data that is missing between the frames. For typical baseball speeds, that means that the original video may not be very useful when slowed down. Just to illustrate, if a pitcher's hand is moving at 90 mph in a video that is recorded at 30 fps, his hand will move 4 feet between adjacent video frames. Slowing the 30 fps video down cannot replace the missing data.

    The only current solution is to take video at high frame rates, for example 300 fps, and slow down the play-back rate to 30 fps. That way, you get 10x the data between frames and it looks smooth and detailed during play-back.

    My YouTube channel, "Baseball in Slow Motion" contains nearly 3000 baseball video clips, mostly recorded at 300 fps so that the slo-mo effect is detailed and useful for the study of mechanics. If you want to see which of my videos get the most attention from people interested in studying the mechanics of pro players, go to my YouTube channel and use the "View" drop-down menu to choose "Most Popular". My videos of Justin Verlander, Randy Johnson, Chase Utley, Miguel Cabrera, Tim Lincecum, etc, etc, etc, will come up if you search it that way. You can also use the channel "Search" function to search by player name, although that is hit-and-miss because I obviously haven't been able record every pro player you might be interested in.

    Here's a link if you're interested:

      I'm pretty sure anyone can see YouTube by frame. I can do it in Safari 5.1.7 and Firefox 16.0.2. I assume this is a YouTube player enhancement - noticed it a couple months ago maybe.
