I have to review very, very long videos where there is very little movement. I am looking for a video player that can go up to speeds to 2x, 4x, 8x, 32x. I've tried VLC, Windows Media Player, Winamp. I can't seem to find what I need.

PowerDVD player (back in the day) could go up to 32x, but it's only for replaying DVDs.

The VLC video player allows you to speed up and slow down playback of movies with the >> and << buttons.

There's no indication I can see of the amount of speed-up, and you may have to click the buttons several times to see a difference, but it does work.

i've always used keyboard hotkeys (my keyboard lacks fast forward/rewind buttons). +/- for faster/slower, and i think 0 resets to normal. – quack quixote Jan 28 '10 at 7:15

You'll be wanting Media Player Classic- Home Cinema. Does the job nicely.

Just to remark that not all videos can be speeded up - actually most can't.

It depends on the encoding format and the options used when encoding the video.

Xbox media centre (all platforms) should do the trick.

BSPlayer also enables you to change playback rate, up to 4x in increments of 1% (increase with F5, decrease with F6) or 10% (increase with Ctrl+F5, decrease with Ctrl+F6).
