Is there a way to control playback speed in Banshee? I want to play some videos and podcasts faster or some video-tutorials slower - just the way it works in VLC (without changing the pitch) but can't find build-in function or plugin.

The reason behind this question is amazing Banshee's library, therefore alternative answer would include suggestions for a media player capable of watching assigned library paths (preferably separate for audiobooks, videos, music, podcasts) as well as of storing play-counts and ratings inside each media file as a meta-data accessible for other media players (I believe Winamp can read Banshee's in-file information and vice versa so there must be some kind of "standard" to follow). All that with a possibility to change the playback speed without affecting the pitch, of course.
