Real media generaly sucks, and I'm on DSL! Why not switch to QT or Mpeg video?

Remember not everyone has a fast connection, so they would want to watch the video via streaming in real time instead of downloading all 15-36 MB of it first. MPEG, last time I checked, doesn't do streaming, and QT has streaming but there's no QT player for Unix.

Well, QT isn't available on Linux, but I believe RealVideo is.

I know it is, that's what I implied when I said that QT isn't available on the Unices, Linux included.

Endico *exlicitly* askes *not* to stream, so this argument is void. I prefer MPEG.

"I'm on DSL". Geez. Yeah, I'm on a 2Mbps ADSL line too but not everyone is.

So? Why can't they please both, by offering the RMs for online streaming, and MPEG1 (.MPG) files for those who want higher video quality to play offline?.

BTW: I should mention there's no RM player for OS/2, and that QT sucks. So the only really multi-platform choice is MPEG1 video.

If I blow up the Real Player window real huge, I can *almost* read the screen, haha.

I don't have time to watch and give a good review now, but from what I see so far, this is very useful, even if you can't read their screen well.

When and where was this all taped? I wish I were there ;-)

God it's annoying. It's like the ad server only has one banner ad.

All I want to do is downloaded the latest nightly and I have to wait for java to load.

Death to the monkey!

Run "command"

---- In the DOS Window ---

ftp <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org>

Login: anonymous

Pass: [e-mail address]

cd /pub/mozilla/nightly/latest

hash # Turn on Hash Printing so you can see that somehing is still happening

binary

get mozilla-win32.zip

# Wait for download to complete

bye

exit

------------ End DOS Windows

Now there's no more Monkey... and a browser crash don't stop you from using your download... :)

Until I see people sending money via PayPal to chrisn I don't want to hear any more complaining about the monkey ad OK?

You think content is free? Think again.

Well it works both ways if people are really annoyed about the ad then they're definitely not going to click on it and it might affect the visitors to the site, if it crashes some browsers (note it's NOT crashed my Netscape 4.7x under Slackware Linux so I can't confirm this - actually crashes on Netscape under linux happen very rarely for me).

But I think it'd make good business sense if chris could get them to take the monkey ad off the adserver.

To whoever owns the original tapes used as source for these .RMs:

I'd be more than glad to pay for (well, an amount reasonably inexpensive) vhs-quality versions of these videos, on cdr, in mpeg1 format.

Or, wth, just mail me the go**amn tapes on a single SLP VHS. ;)
