    Tried streaming both mobile files. Both failed with the error that the content was unavailable or the server was blocked or unresponsive. Tried via 3G and Wi-Fi. If I click on the direct link for the files, I can download them and watch.

    The 360 & 720 worked fine for me except the audio seemed like it was a few beats ahead of the video on both. I think my telephone is supposed to play video but I couldn't figure it out. It it just a regular phone, not a Blackberry or something like that. Might be due to the fact that I am still fuzzy from the surgery, etc.

    thanks for the info guys, you know i have been digging and digging to find out why and i just realized, its from the lapel mic im using, it only records in mono.. ugh...
    i will have to see if there is a way i can duplicate the track for both the right and left channels, but im not sure how to do that yet. I have the next show recorded just need to work on these few issues before i start releasing more.

    thanks for the feedback.

    Wow, its been a while. Awesome that were back. Hardly noticed a new episode was out buried under about 40 Mac/Apple podcast subscriptions, but I was thrilled when I saw it.
    PBITAWA!

    Why do they call those small candy Bars "Fun Size"? I think it would be a lot more fun to have a big candy bar.

    Hi Rob

    Glad to see you back and looking forward to upcoming episodes. Being a new reefer the subject matter is just what I'm looking for.

    I pulled up the browser on my Bold - typed in that loooooooooong url and was asked if I wanted to view or save the episode. I chose to save and did so.
    Opened up the file and it worked just fine. (used the small format)

    Thought you would want to know.

    the thing about youtube is it won't allow you to save the file into a usable format for phones.
    It saves it to a flu. ??? format.
    youtube is just for viewing and not saving and transferring................
