I watch and listen to more than my share of online tutorials, both in audio and video format. I listen on my pc, and I take some for later on an Ipod, and there’s nothing I hate more than being unproductive.
Most of what I choose to view (or hear) is necessary for my work, but I really don’t have any time to spare. Sometimes, the speaker or presenter talks very slowly, or goes on and on, when all I want are the facts. Just give me what I need to know, and give it to me right now.
Recently, I received (again, from Jerry West) a link to a 48 minute video analysis of the Q4 2006 search engine algorithm changes. C’mon, Jerry, are you kidding me?! 48 minutes?
I immediately started searching for a way to speed up the playback time, and it didn’t take me too long to find this great post.
They covered several of my options, and in the comments, there were other suggestions too that could help with nearly any type of media file I needed to play faster.
So, if you are looking for a way to easily speed up the time it takes to playback audio and video files, look no further than here. I saved so much time watching my 48 minute video, that I had some left over to write this…
