adjust preview playback speed?

Hi, this may be a strange question but I need to know if it's possible to adjust the playback speed in CS4. I'm not actually trying to slow down the footage I'm working with, nor am I trying to physically stretch the timeline. What I'm trying to do is when I play back my project to preview it, I would like to play it back slower - or rather be able to adjust the speed at which it plays back.
I know I can scrub the timeline but obviously I wouldn't be able to maintain speed throughout.
I've tried looking through the 'Preview' windows buttons, menus, etc., but nothing.
Is scrubbing my only option?
(this project has no audio so no worries about sound)
Thank you!

In your preview window you can set the Ram Preview frame rate to whatever you want - you can also skip frames if needed. Drop your frame rate to 15 fps or so and It'll play slower.

Thank you! I'm traveling for work right now but I'll give that a shot when I get back!
