I've been interested in overclocking video lectures ever since I read your article on the subject. I wrote a wrapper program in c# that implemented your technique, only to discover later VLC does it for me.
However, overclocking streaming video almost never works out well. Many interesting lectures are in Flash, or worse in the MMS protocol. Have you given any thought to getting immediate overclocking gratification? (i.e rather than downloading the file and converting to a format that can be overclocked.) I know next to nothing about video protocols. What would it take to construct a service that could be between the end user and the target stream?

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
