    Good stuff! I suggest adding "Playback speed" control to adjust the speed of the video.

    Thanks Jure,

    If you kindly describe the intent of this feature, I would be more than happy to add it to the suggestions database.

    Thanks

    Hi Lino!

    Sure, what I meant is (I thought it was obvious) the control that would look like the "Adjust Volume" control or similar and it would have at least these options:
    • Normal Speed (default) - the video plays at normal speed
    • Double or 2x speed - the video plays at double speed (sound pitch should remain the same)
    Well based on that it could be just checkbox but even better would be slider that would have more options (though probably that means also more performance issues).

    Edit: Reason? Speed learning - time is money - double speed double money ;). Some parts of the video can be pretty basic and there you'd have e.g. double speed and when more complicated things came up you'd set it back to normal.

    Thanks Jure,

    I added your suggestion to the database.
    BTW, each video is a .tts file and that is actually a CAB file that contains several files that manage the entire synchronization of the video with TOC, code, samples, summary, etc...
    In your case, you can easily rename the tts file to .cab and open it in Windows Explorer, once that is done, you will find the wmv file for the video where you can run in any media program that allows for the double speed feature.

    Hope that helps.
    Cheers

    If anyone's interested in how to play faster in Windows Media Player... Click the arrow below “Now Playing”, then click Enhancements -> Play Speed Settings. (that is in version 11)
