When Audacity upgraded it caused some changes that affected my use of it to prepare podcasts I listen to. I did find the answer, though, and I am sharing it with you.

with ffmpg and VLC you can get everything done you need likely...

ffmpeg -i input.mkv -filter:v "minterpolate='mi_mode=mci:mc_mode=aobmc:vsbmc=1:fps=120'" output.mkv

Which hardware podcast player did you move to?

hey, I was a long-time fan of the Sansa Clip as well and managed to eventually kill both the ones I owned (and had put RockBox on). When I went to look for a 3rd one, they were outlandishly expensive. I couldn't suss out the make/model of the one you switched to.

Your answer

The one I bought was called Klangtop, which I found on Amazon. I just looked, and now I don't see it, but I see something that looks identical under the name AGPTek. My guess is that they are all manufactured by a Chinese manufacturer as OEMs for various companies.

audacity batch

I use "sox" in linux scripts to automate stuff like speeding up audio, removing long periods of silence, etc:

# adjust speed sox input.wav output.wav tempo [value]
