I have posted a video the Overview of the Year part of the section meeting held on 12th March.You can download the video as an MP4 by visiting the page:[url=http://britastro.org/baa/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layou... Meeting 2011 Video[/url]This page is only available when logged in to the Members Only area.I had battery problems with my recorder, so was unfortunately not able to record more of the talks. Hope you enjoy this one, though.Regards, Callum

Hi Callum,That's a big file 250mb.Is there any chance it can be uploaded onto YouTube?

Hi Paul,on YouTube the max video duration is 15mins - so a bit short.in any case - you would be downloading the same number of bytes - just when viewing on Youtube its a bit more gradual... and they are not stored on your machine. I have been looking for a way to view the video 'live' on the site, but the things i have tried don't seem to 'stream' the video to you (downloads it all and then shows it) - though perhaps its the way the video is made.Any experts on this sort of stuff out there ?Callum

Hi Paul,the player that is now available on that video page will now stream (at least should - you might need to be a little patient as it gets going), so you don't need to download the file to watch (though that may be easier to do so, at your leisure, offline).Thanks, Callum
