Charles Charles Welcome Change
  • Kerry / Bush Debate

    All,

    It's really great to see that such a contentious subject is not spinning out of control in flames. Thank you for being responsible Channel 9 netizens! Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to watch the debates so I can't add any useful commentary to this thread. Sounds like it was an interesting affair.

  • J2SE 5.0 is out, will look great on Longhorn

    manickernel,

    This is great to hear! Smiley

    What other feedback are you getting (positive as well as negative)? Would love to hear it.

    Interesting... Smiley

    We should probably work on our word filtering algorithm.

    EDIT: Removed test...

  • Channel 9 Videos on OSX

    I am unable to repro this on my network. However, Lenn was able to repro this on his. But, neither of us can repro now. This is why it must me related to network latency and the way that WMP for the Mac handles it (looks like it drops packets).

    This appears to be a network latency problem, which seems to be better now, and not a specific technical issue with our video encoding implementation or OSX or WMP.

    I would say the problem you experienced can be attributed to anomalous behavior in OSX and WMP for the Mac as well as a little good old fashioned transient network latency. Smiley

    Rossj,

    I've not experienced this problem with WMP on OSX. Does this happen for all clips you try to watch? Can you share any error info you have here? Anybody else experiencing this problem on OSX?

    EDIT: What version of OSX are you using?

  • Where is C9 going?

    All,

    The Coffeehouse will not be removed. In fact, in the near future its functionality will be extended (as well as all the other forums).

    Scoble and I will be administering all forums going forward. That said, any inflamatory or derogatory or otherwise disrespectful post in any forum will be immediately removed.

    It is really nice to see that the Coffeehouse has been flame free recently. Thank you. Keep it up! Smiley

  • Channel 9 Videos on OSX

    Rossj,

    Yes. You could word it that way. Smiley 

    However, if you run Firefox or IE on OSX then you will see that the controls work as expected. I'm not dissing your favorite browser, but I would argue that Safari does have some bugs in its CSS and rendering engines that make it hard for us to work around in code ( Let's not get a massive IE bashing thread started, please Smiley ).

    Nevertheless, we will see what we can come up with to ensure that you have a pleasant experience viewing Channel 9 in your favorite browser.

  • Channel 9 Videos on OSX

    Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to create multiple encoding types for our videos. WMP for OSX is a good application and I recommend it highly.

    For Linux users, I have heard that there is a way to decode WMV files on Linux. I'm not sure what the technology is, how easy it is to find or how well it works, etc. I'd love to get more info on this if any of you are in the know.

    We want the Channel 9 experience to be accessible and useful across platforms. However, certain browsers, like Safari for example, do not work well with some of our custom controls.

    Your feedback and knowledge is always welcome.

    Keep on posting,

    All,

    We are not going to do things that will make you less inclined to want to spend time here. Remember, this place is for you. Where do you want it to go? What's most valuable to you? We are listening and we will continue to listen.


    Keep on posting, Niners!
