This library provides variable speed playback for podcast players. It's exactly the same as the 'Presto Sound Library Open Beta except:

* It doesn't crash all the time
* Adds simple UI to allow playback speeds faster than 2x
* JellyBean+ devices support most audio formats, including MP3, Vorbis and AAC
* Pre-JellyBean devices only playback MP3 files
* Pre-JellyBean devices do not support streaming

It acts as a background service, and provides variable speed playback of all audio formats supported by Android MediaPlayer, this including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and, unlike Presto, AAC.

If you already own Presto, you MUST UNINSTALL PRESTO before Stable Speed will work.

PLEASE NOTE: BeyondPod and DoggCatcher now supporting variable-speed playback natively. There is now NO NEED to also purchase Stable Speed.

Stable Speed has been confirmed to work with :

- BeyondPod (old version -- current version does not need Stable Speed!)
- DoggCatcher (old version -- current version does not need Stable Speed!)
- PodTrapper Beta
- Akimbo
- CarCast
- Audio Book Player

Pocket Casts, BeyondPod and DoggCatcher no longer support Presto-compatible players.

This code puts a premium on stability. If an error is detected you will be prompted to email the issue to me. Please do so!

Internet access is necessary to stream files from the Internet.

I'm sorry the screenshots aren't nicer, but there's not really a user interface, and Google insist on two screenshots!

    Switched from Presto which crashed and had weird audio issues randomly. I wish I could get my 5 bucks back for that program and send it to the developer of this. This makes listening to podcasts with Doggcatcher fun again.

    Honestly, I thought my phone, (or DoggCatcher) was broken or just too slow. No wait, it's a brand new Note 2 with a quad core. Presto was the culprit. Stable Speed fixes the lags and unresponsiveness Presto causes DoggCatcher. I Hate having to buy a simil

    This does work much better than Presto but it eats up the battery much faster.

    Works much better than Presto. Not only does it not crash, it also responds much quicker than Presto to pause/seek commands. In Presto/DoggCatcher, I would hear a notification sound over the stream, then a brief pause, and then it would resume. SSL/DoggC

    Seamless install and it just plain works. Haven't noticed any issues using with Doggcatcher.
