I got hooked on WinDVD 4's "time stretch" functionality watching shows on my notebook. I can't find the original CD or serial number though now that I've upgraded my notebook (sigh), so it seems time to inquire about which player would do the best job with this.

My main concern is no dropped or jerky frames. The PowerDVD light version that came with my Dell inspiron 8600 has this functionality, but its jerkiness and frame drops are unacceptible.

Do any of them do better than 2.0x playback speed without distortion?

TIA for your help!

Versa, it lets you watch programs you want to catch up on in less time I find that having done it awhile, I can easily watch most news and dramas at 2x speed.

trailergod, thanks for the link. This looks like a freeware MPEG filter, as opposed to a full-featured DVD player...am I missing something?

I use it to play PAL film based DVD's at 24fps instead of 25fps, using reclock. I also use Reclock to correct the pitch of the (now 24fps) PAL movie.

I get the resolution advantages of PAL, but not the 4% speedup downside.

Reclock will do what you want, but you need to use it with Zoomplayer or TT - it's an audio renderer, not a player. Otherwise get Windvd again.

Thanks Mark_A_W.

So reclock will override the video setting on TT also? I do have that player, gathering dust somewhere...
