    Folks,

    When playing podcasts it sounds like the people are on speed but if I play music it's ok.

    Any ideas???? should I delete the podcasts from my Itunes and then reload??:smashin::cool:

    Thanks in advance.:rolleyes:

    If you bring up the control screen for a podcast (not music) in the iPod app there is a small button just below the time remaining on the right that will probably be saying '2X' (ie 2 times speed), tap it and it'll change to '1/2X' (or half speed), tap it again to get to '1X' and your podcasts should sound normal again... the button only applies to podcasts, so music sounds OK.

    HTH,

    Maybe a stupid question but what's the point of being able to increase/decrease podcast speed?

    Don't worry about it, it was driving me mad as well till I mentioned it to someone at work... At least you only feel stupid in an impersonal way over the internet!

    Yeah, agreed - i don't really see the point either. I guess the ability to speed them up just lets you get through a backlog of them quicker... They are still quite easy to listen to when sped up (the iPhone must do something clever to the pitch so it doesn't sound like a chipmunk speaking). It does mean I can get through a 40min podcast on my 30min commute though.

    Not so sure why anyone would want to slow a podcast down...
