Ubuntu – How to control Banshee playback speed


Is there a way to control playback speed in Banshee? I want to play some videos and pod-casts faster or some video-tutorials slower – without changing the pitch – but can't find a build-in function or a plug-in.

The reason behind this question is amazing Banshee's library, therefore alternative answer would include suggestions for a media player capable of:

  1. watching assigned library paths (preferably separate for audio books, videos, music, podcasts),
  2. keeping play-counts and ratings inside each media file as a standard consistent ID3v1 or ID3v2 (or at least calling a user defined script after each database change so I could sync them myself),
  3. changing the playback speed without affecting the pitch.

Sorry, looks like Banshee can not do this.
