It looks really cool, from the video and all and I'd love nothing more but to try it out.
Except I can't use it.
Doesnt work in FF...ok, it's activeX, fine (btw I thought this was being abonded?)...so I fire up IE and it tells me after downloading a setup.exe in IE installing that, then firing up FF and downloading a MSI that my locale is not supported? I'm using german
XP SP2 here, but come on? Let me install the english version I don't mind, but at least let me bloddy install it. Show me a warning or something.
Dissapointed not about the product but that I can't use it. It sure seems awesome....
I can confirm that, its 4:3 and not 16:9.......looks completely odd. Luckily zoom player allows you to manually switch aspect ratios regadless of what the video is encoded in. Wheres the feature in WMP btw?
Another thing, you guys should really work on the encodings. Makes that hd camcorder kind of a waste, doesnt it? If you download some other stuff from the internet the quality is alot better at about the same bitrate. Channel9 vids just seem kinda blocky. I
dont know. Are you using 2pass at all? Perhaps offer two versions for download. Hey, its HD, so allow me to download the vids in WMV HD 720p. Isnt microsoft in the business of trying to convince people that hdtv is totally worth it. Convince the geeks first
by letting them watch fellow geeks show off code in HDTV........you might just be able to read it all, hehe.
