VLC isn't very informative in it's playback speed designations.

Any idea as to which playback speed each adjective refers to?

If you show the Status Bar (View menu) you can find the play speed there. This will allow you to try each one and see what the effect is. –  mwfearnley Dec 7 '13 at 8:48

  • Faster (fine): 1.1×

  • Faster: 1.5×

  • Slower (fine): 0.9×

  • Slower: 0.6×


Pressing [ to speed up and ] to slow down displays ±0.1 the previous speed as large text in the top right.
