Windows Media Player Clone?
Windows Media Player's latest version has a feature which I really like. You can vary the playback speed of archived streaming audios and mp3s via a slide bar. I use it to speed up talk shows to about 1.8 times the normal speed. Perhaps I have ADD - my mind tends to wander when I listen to archives at normal speed.
I'm new to Linux and am using Ubunto Edgy. Are there any media players that will allow me to use such a feature while listening to these playbacks. (I have mplayer and RealPlayer installed but haven't found a 'vari-speed' function on either of them yet.
