The Discussion

    Guys, i think you need to reencode the video, because the quality is really bad: everything is doubled, in all the qualities. I cannot understand anything from the text on the sites, especially in HQ WMV version.

    Thanks, Raul; yes we know it's a problem and I've got a request in to the studio techs for a re-encode. As you can tell from the backdrop the studio is going through a lot of upgrades right now and it's a bit chaotic. Hopefully we'll get a better encoding up for this one soon, otherwise it will have to wait until the next episode before we can fix it.
