This is my first post and first thread so I hope I'll get a hospitable welcoming . I have always been using VLC as my main player but had problems playing videos with low fps and it happened that I sometimes record at 3 fps. So I realised that VLC has the inherent problem in playing low fps videos. Hence I went about looking for a new video player and stumbled upon Potplayer. It was such a serendipity that I was surprised I hadn't know of it. Potplayer seemed flawless until I began watching lecture videos. I usually speed up lectures to between 1.5 to 2.0 of their actual speed. When using Potplayer I noticed that the voice lost a lot of its sharpness and sounded as if someone is in hall and the voice is reverberating. I tried to tweak some settings but got no luck.
I hope someone can test and verify it. Press 'c' to speed up.

Thread: Potplayer audio gets distorted
There is another tempo filter to use. You can change it in the playback section of preferences.
Alternatively you could try ReClock. It's primary function is to automatically adjust the frame rate of video playback to best match the refresh rate of the monitor TV. As a result it needs to resample the audio to match.
You can change the playback speed by manually selecting the framerate ReClock uses via it's icon in the system tray. There's plenty of options including 1.5x or 2x original frame rate etc. I can't remember if it's enabled by default, but the ReClock configuration (accessed via a Start Menu shortcut) lets you enable "time stretching", which is ReClock-speak for changing the speed of audio playback without changing the pitch.
ReClock should work with any DirectShow media player such as MPC-HC or Potplayer.
