I recently got my login access to the streaming content from the PASS Community Summit in Denver.  I have started to play the sessions on my other system as I work on other projects.  It is great to be working along and pickup tidbits along the way while multitasking. There is so much great content, it seems like I will never get through it all.  I decided to try an old trick that I had used in the past when reviewing MSDN and TechNet webcasts.  This trick is to increase the speed at which the content is replayed.  Typically, replaying at 1.2 to 1.3 times the speed will allow you to get through the material quicker without greatly reducing your comprehension (or causing you to think that the Chipmunks are now DBAs).  I think that it actually improves comprehension because many of the "Uh-Uh" and "Hmm" breaks are minimized.  When the session first starts streaming, the option to play at a faster speed may not be present until more of the content is buffered on to your system.
