    Wanting to watch video lectures on my iPod at 1.5-2x speed. It's great on my laptop w/QT, but unpossible on the iPod.

    So, I need to take the original video, speed it up (shorten it), and save it for viewing on the iPod - is there functionality in QT Pro or iMovie. If not, a preferably free third party app?? Thanks in advance.

    i'd like to reiterate this question as well as add a suggestion. there is an app called jes deinterlacer which will speed up the audio/video but the audio will change pitch (as with most speeding up processes). it's possible to then use an app like audacity to speed up the audio without changing the pitch, and pair the fast video and audio. but that's too many steps

    does anyone know of an application, free or not, that will speed up video and audio, without the audio changing pitch? the source is itunes store movie files (also lectures). ideally would also be able to batch process multiple files....

    any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
