How slow down or speed up video

Sometimes when I watch video (like wav files, CD's or mp4 files) it would be helpfull if I could slow them down or speed them up.  For example, I watch video sometimes involving piano keyboards and it would be helpful to slow the video way down without making the music go into a lower key.  

At one time I had such a product on my computer but for the life of me I can't remember what it was or what it was called.  Does anyone know of such a product; hopefully one that is free?

Thank you.  I have downloaded the product and like its speed-up and slow-down features.  However, when it slows down, the audio is no longer available.  Somewhere there is a product that not only allows you to slow down, but when you do, the sound stays on and does not vary in pitch.

Do you, or does anyone know anything about a product that has that feature?

Thank you for trying to help.

The instructions on the first link (above) don't match what I'm seeing.  I downloaded, to the best of my knowledge, the latest version (0.8.6f (wxWidgets Interface).  I do not see a Playback menu item as per the instructions.  I noticed when I installed there were a number of options.  I just selected the default.  

Any ideas?

I have discovered that QuickTime Player does what I want.  I think VLC has sound adjustment too, but at the moment I am unable to discover the diference between what I am seeing on screen and the instructions mentioned in the link above.

Ok,

so you happy to just use QuicTime then?

Shall we consider the issue closed?

Sorry if my solution was not 100% what you needed.

Am sure there are plenty of other free software downloads that will do the job, just have used VLC before to do same thing.

Let me know.
