Hello!
Do you know when the US 147 video will work?

Hi MOP,

It is working.

First I thought it was necessary to download the latest quicktime player of apple.
Later I found that you just need to wait a very long time before the video starts.
It seems that the video needs to be downloaded completely before it starts.
Must be something wrong with the streaming.

Just in case, here's the link to the latest quicktime player:

Yes, is working, but in very strange way. It is only 27 seconds film, but weight 150 MB. This is the reason that it's starting much time.

I guess this video is in HD since the download time is very long. I waited about 3 minutes and still got nothing. I have DSL, but it's not super fast.

For those of us that don't have the fastest DSL, we simply don't watch anything in HD (720p). Anything over 360p is too slow to download. At least allow us to choose the quality of the download like YouTube offers, otherwise a lot of folks simply won't see any of the Starboard videos.

Also, having to wait until the download is complete is not a good idea. Most will give up before watching.
