Slowing Down (and Looping) Prodigies Video Lessons

We are thrilled to announce that we’re rolling out a new and improved video player inside of the Prodigies Playground that introduces two really amazing features!

1. Slowing Down the Videos

If you play the “Hello C” video above, you’ll notice two buttons ( – / + ) in the middle of the video. These control the speed of the videos!

You can slow down the videos to .5, .6, .7, .8 or .9 speed and the pitch of the music won’t be affected! The video does start to sound a little weird at 50% speed, though, so we generally recommend something between 60%-80% as a good slower tempo!

This feature is only live on Chapter 1 and 2 of the Prodigies Playground right now, but we’ll be adding the player to the rest of the site this week!

2. Slowing Down the Videos

The new video player also allows you to loop different sections of the videos. Say you want to practice a specific section over and over, you can set in the in-time with the left bumper and the out-time with the right bumper, and the looping will take place in between those two frames.

We really hope that you enjoy these two new and very powerful features inside the Playground!
