Re-posting richc's comment, which was shown under the previous show even though it pertains to this one. -- Steve W.

Enjoyed your program this evening. I thought you might want to consider noting the sites your are discussing a little bit better for those who might be new to video blogging. For example, you reference names like "Amanda" or sites like "jetset" but many listeners might need a reminder where she is now and that you are talking There are a few aspects to the conversation style podcast that leave less informed listeners with more questions than answers.

Personally speaking, I click in though talkshoe because I wanted to learn a little more about "how to" use videos online better. Nevertheless, listening I was able to grab a few morsels. Thanks. :-)

Great episode, guys. I’m bummed that I didn’t get a chance to respond when you called me out. Right now we're replicating an AppleTV experience using the Xbox 360, but honestly it’s more practical (i.e. time-saving) for me to watch them on the computer. The experience itself is completely different and the interface is still clumsy. Watching short-format videos on the TV is awkward for a lot of reasons.

I don’t know if you guys have heard about Hey!Watch -- it’s a server-side transcoding service that can pull in your feeds and redistribute videos in whatever format you choose. If only Blip could implement this.

A couple of other interesting projects...

--TVersity (streaming, on-the-fly transcoding for Windows)

--The Venice Project (a new internet TV distribution service)

Looking forward to next week.

Great Comments!

This blog post on TVersity has a lot of good info in it:

I've also got to try out Hey!Watch to see what it's all about.
