jQuery(“#jplayer”).jPlayer(“option”,”playbackRate”, 1.5);

jQuery(“#jplayer”).jPlayer(“options”,{defaultPlaybackRate : 1.5});

<script type="text/javascript">

var currentSpeedIdx = 1;  
var speeds = [ 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 ];

function jpSpeedControl()
{

currentSpeedIdx = currentSpeedIdx + 1 < speeds.length ? currentSpeedIdx + 1 : 0;

jQuery("#jplayer").jPlayer("option","playbackRate", speeds[currentSpeedIdx]);

jQuery("#jpSpeedControl").html( speeds[currentSpeedIdx] + 'x' );
