      Is it just me or is the audio extremely choppy?  Video plays fine.

      Very hard to watch this one due to the choppy audio.  Even the downloaded version has issues.

      I think it's been run through a blank-cancelling system - frames where there's no or a low-level of audio have been cut out. You can see that the movement of the 'toddler' robot towards the end as Stewart picks it up and puts it back down is jerky.

      Don't do this again, guys, an extra 30 seconds isn't going to kill us!

      big deal about the quality - i liked what i saw especially the bit at the end where the words "spot technology controlled with .net" were uttered, thats great.
