Video of Millionaire

As previously reported [1], Who Wants To Be A Millionaire made a millionaire, and I now have video online of the event.

I have two version online for compatibility reasons.
MP4 (MPEG Layer 4) [2] This version is more compatible with lots of media software, although Windows Media Player doesn’t seem to like it, it is also higher quality.
WMV (Windows Video) [3] Lower quality, but Windows Media Player supports it.

I strongly suggest that if you are running Windows, download Quicktime [4] which supports MP4 without issues. It also integrates with Mozilla Firefox [5] quite nicely. None the less, choose which file pleases you more and download it, if it doesn’t work the other one almost certainly will.

Well, Quicktime, Winamp and xmms are my media players of choice. I use an older version of quicktime though as I don’t want to download itunes. Eventually I will probably need to bite the bullet and upgrade, but until then I’m happy, and by then I may have removed Windows from day-to-day use anyway.

It’s probably just my installation of Windows Media Player, but it just has these bursts of non-responsiveness, which is quite painful as it is set to loop. The first burst of non-responsiveness always happens just a couple seconds after it starts playing something, sometimes it forces me to endure nearly a minute of a looping short sound file, and being such a “vital” part of Windows it manages to prevent the Task Manager from appearing until after I’ve closed it, which means I can’t kill it without using the reset button or waiting a long time.
