turnip1.0 is on a distinguished road

just wondering if there is any way that i can play movies through quicktime faster than normal speed but less than 2X speed, something that i have been doing with vlc but now due to perian would like to do with quicktime instead
i've tried using an apple script which plays podcasts from itunes at 1.5X but it will only work if the movie is in itunes.
Anyone have any thoughts ?


tell application "iTunes"
set my_track to location of current track
set my_seconds to player position
end tell

tell application "QuickTime Player"
open my_track
set my_movie to first movie
set ts to time scale of my_movie
set current time of my_movie to my_seconds * ts
set rate of my_movie to 1.5 -- starts playing
end tell
QUOTE Thanks
