      I have tried playing this video on a PC, a Mac, and downloading multiple versions of it. None of them have had anything but a whisper-level for audio. Can anyone else hear the presenter?

    • chrisrisner

      Sorry for the issues with the audio.  I'll be releasing a new version with much better audio soon.

    • JoshRoss

      Still broken.

    • Satinder

      Is it only for Mac ...

    • chrisrisner

      @JoshRoss:I'm still waiting for the new version to be uploaded.

      @Satinder:  this video focuses on using Mobile Services for iOS apps.  There are a number of other videos in the series which focus on Windows Store apps and we'll be adding more videos over time.

      Chris, you mumble very fast. Please, if you must race through the presentation,

    • Tomas

      Very cool. Funny how you start up logging into Windows Azure, running Chrome on Mac OSX. Way to go Microsoft, really looking forward to creating some test apps using this arrangement.

    • Francesco

      Please, do not race through the presentation, it was quite difficult to follow.

      Go to and watch just a few of the tutorials about creating screencasts in Camtasia. YOu don't have to use camtasia but for goodness sake learn from the experts. I really want to learn this and unfortunately you go TOO FAST. If you think you're dragging, you are going at about the right pace. Compare the pace of their dialog to yours.
