Fast play option in VLC if you download the videos

If you are planning on downloading several videos downloading them through the iTunes link would probably be simpler.

Yeah iTunes is the simplest, once they're downloaded you can play them in whichever program you want.

Hopefully you will soon add this feature. I love to watch the videos on Coursera with double speed and subtitles the same time. Keep up this great work.

Fully agree with @Christian - this is a must have feature. Manually downloading the videos just so that I can get through them faster isn't exactly a performance improvement. ;-)

Try to sit through all 12 minutes of this video where Nick keeps typing filler text and then reads it back to us over and over. http://teamtreehouse.com/library/build-a-simple-website/text-editors-and-html/finishing-the-html-2

Please don't take my comments the wrong way: I am a huge Treehouse fan - I'd just like to be able to choose the rate at which I can absorb some of this stuff (mostly just refresher for me at this point).

Thanks!

Wish granted! You can now watch a video at 1.5x & 2x speed.
