Playback speed is like what you would get on a DVD player where the 
video (no sound) would play at 2x, 4x, 8x...etc. Time stretch is in 
smaller increments like 1.1x - 1.5x but with sound and not effecting 
pitch. The idea is you can watch shows faster without skipping any part. 
I like to watch the local half hour news with commercial skipping at 
1.3x and finish watching it in 16minutes. It just makes it seem like the 
anchors are talking faster but not like chipmunks.
