After Hours

Five good alternatives to Windows Media Player

VLC Media Player

One thing  I really like about VLC Media Player is that you can easily adjust the playback speed. I use a lot of video-based IT  training products, but they tend to be quite long. I don't have time to sit through a 20-hour class every time I want to learn something new, but with VLC, I can set the playback speed to about 2.5X and breeze through the classes.
