Awesome New Tool Speeds Up Online Videos

Have you noticed how much content online is turning to video these days? I mean sure, reading text is fine and all – and certainly still the dominant way content is delivered online.

But if you’re a “regular” here, then you may have noticed by now…I love me some online video.  In terms of engagement, I’ll take audio and (especially) video any day of the week when possible.

But…I’ll also be the first to admit video’s not always the most efficient way to go through something. Personally I’m often frustrated by how much video content I want to go through, but just can’t get around to for lack of time in the day.

Then MySpeed Walked Into My Life…

…and frankly, had me at “Hello”. MySpeed is a crazy-awesome, time saving tool that’ll let you speed-up almost any online video – at will.

And here’s the bottom line: With as much online video as I tend to consume, this thing’s probably saved me dozens of hours over the last couple of weeks since I first discovered it.

So here’s a short video I made for you about it.  Watch it.  Trust me.  You’ll thank me.


Ironically, if you had MySpeed, you’d have been able to watch my video above in half the time or better! :mrgreen:

Important Update: Since I made the above video, MySpeed has come out of Beta and is now no longer free (a tear rolls down my cheek).  But hey, it’s still a great deal at only $29.99.  I got so hooked on it in Beta, that I dropped the thirty bucks without a second thought.  The fact is, my time’s worth a lot more, and this thing would still be a great deal for me at a few hundred bucks.

Also, due to my early connection with the software developers, I was able to score you guys a 10% discount if you use this coupon code: REITIPS10 So after your free trial expires, if you’re hooked like I was, just use that coupon code and you’ll save some dough.

A few more quick thoughts on this…

The Positives:

  • It’s cheap (only $29.99 – 10% off with coupon code: REITIPS10)
  • It’s quick and easy to go from 1/2 speed to 3X speed (or anywhere in between)
  • Huge, daily time saver for me (probably saved dozens of hours in the last few weeks)
  • Works on almost any online video or audio (if it’s flash)
  • Doesn’t sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks

The Negatives:

  • Only works in Windows (sorry Mac heads)
  • Occasionally video and audio won’t be quite synced up (but I can live with that)
  • Sometimes I can’t turn it “off” without shutting down my browser first for some reason.

My Recommendation:

Get it, and use it whenever you want to be more efficient, and zip through things like…

  • Webinar/teleseminar replays
  • Product/course/seminar promotions
  • Online video training, courses, etc.
  • Virtual tours and/or video walk-throughs of a property
  • Anything else on YouTube, Google videos, etc.

I mean, seriously…what the heck is your time worth?

Personally I can almost always watch at about 2x and still comprehend everything just fine.  If it’s particularly “heady” I’ll go at about 1.5x.  But that’s just me, and you can set whatever speed your little heart desires.

Where to get it:

You can download a free trial here.  Easy peasy.

    I have an online class that requires us to watch a 3 hour lecture…really boring. I heard about this. I thought “I wonder if this will work.” It did and I use it for all of the videos. 3 hours of lecture done in 1.5 hours. I love it.

    Great video explaining an outstanding product!
    I found MySpeed a while ago and it instantly became a necessity and now I don’t browse without it.
    I was surprised to run across a video about MySpeed and funnily enough, your vid sounds great using it. 🙂

  • JP,

    What an awesome tool. Just great
    I’ll never get off the net. 🙂

    Seriously though, I’ve been researching
    tools to speed up audio and then you send
    this.

    Great find.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    It is not working on my computer. I downloaded it and now it says that the flash player is not playing but I am playing a video. Any suggestions? Sounds very cool though and will help me in transcribing a video.

    From JP: Lauren, I’d suggest closing your internet browser and re-opening it. Then trying the video again. If that doesn’t do it, try rebooting your system, then going again.

    I know all that’s a pain, but that’s what I’d try. And for whatever reason one option or the other seems to fix whatever problems I have like 95% of the time.

    Grab it off of the main page where the link is.

    Good tip! They also have a trial (need to purchase after) for Windows Media & Real Audio (if anyone still uses that anymore…hahahaha)

    From JP: You’re right, Mat. I made a mistake. The page I referred to describes the software, but the download link is actually on their main site at: http://www.enounce.com

    Thanks!

    I downloaded Enounce and it worked
    great but now it quit working.

    Is the free version just temporary?
    If so, how do we get a paid version?

    From JP: Monica, mine’s still working fine. I don’t think it’s temporary. Maybe your got a bug? I’d try rebooting your system and see if that cures it. If not, uninstall and reinstall. Betcha that does the trick!
