Kaplan Medical Kaplan videos 2 times faster

I want to watch the Kaplan videos at 2x speed. But the problem is that I use windows media player version 12 to watch Kaplan videos and if i play them at 2x speed, the sound does not play..it just plays the video without sound.. Any idea which software I can use to watch Kaplan videos at 2x speed??

VLC does a good job. It easy to use and light on the system and it's free. Do Google

The button >> beside the volume cannot be clicked somehow, i mean the button looks faded. Maybe the option is not available for mac. I will try with MplayerX. Thanks anyway.

try going into options for VLC and see if there is any keyboard shortcut ... it works great as you can increase or decrease speend by 0.1x

sometimes i watch videos at 1.4x or 1.5x or 1.7x or something .. its really helpful!
