smplayer doesn't seem to pitch shift, might want to give that a shot.

(If your distribution doesn't have it's own version.)

I installed mplayer from CVN
and it got some filter that does that.
for example
mplayer -af scaletempo -speed 1.2 media.ogg

THanks .

You can always separate the video and sound channels and edit the wave on a wave editor. Most of them will allow you to change the tempo without pitch shifting. Then you can use mencoder or whatever you preffer to multiplex the video and the sound into a final avi file.
