VLC is known to be one of the best and most reliable players around. I remember fiddling with codec packs and drivers to play certain videos on my computer when I was a kid. 😁

Does this work for streaming urls as well? If so, this would be massive, it not it will require those horrible old "files".

I use Plex on the Apple TV and it's amazing, so I don't see a huge need for this except for one feature; playback speed. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a mindless movie, but want to waste less than ~90 minutes watching it, so watching a movie in 1.5x or 2x speed would be awesome!

@ryanshook @bradenhamm I've done it a few times on VLC on my Mac and it was fine. I listen to all of my podcasts at 2x so I'm used to sound as well.
