I got the CD just fine but the OD & FD download with an error and no picture shows up, only sound... I'll see if I can find another link on vids but just curious if it's my lovely computer or someone else has experienced this as well.

I have to dl vids on fsvids before I can access the SA ones so I haven't done that yet. I'm going to try downloading the programs again in a min to see if they do this time.
ETA: It's the codec server that's not loading/downloading/whatever and is why I can't see it. Why that happens I have no clue. What I can do about I don't have a clue either. I'll have to download stuff on fsvids and see if someone can download them to something my computer has consistently dl'ed from.
I'll let ya know when I do see them.

I would break my computer right now but then I coudn't talk to any of you!
I'm going to try again later but it doesn't look like they're going to work. grumble grumble grumble. Thanks a bunch for posting those, Mel.
All of the sudden my computer is unable to download the codec thingy which is why I can't see the picture. I'm not sure why and I'm going to try downloading some other clips to see if it's a consistent thing or just because I want to see S&J. Growl.

Yahoo I figured out which server my computer likes!! I have dl'ed the OD and am about to dl the FD. So cannot get as much an appreciation for their edges without being there in person. I know I've said it before, but I really like their lunge in the footwork. I could notice Sinead losing her edge a lot more easily in person than on the clip (and I was sitting practically right in front of them) so I'm glad they showed a replay of it. The ice down there looked pretty wet and maybe soft but don't know if that had anything to do with it. I really enjoy watching that OD.
I had to download something as the codecs were broken and that's why I was having trouble downloading certain vids (why they're the Kerrs and not the other competitors ) but anyway, I like the quality of the picture being clearer but it pauses for a split sec every once and a while so hopefully things will work out better for videos at least.
Sinead definitely got back to far on her edge on that...it happened so fast I didn't really see what really happened when I was there. I do know it's hard to just pick things back up, especially when there are 2 people involved, but overall they are skating a higher level now and that's great to see.
I think the flowers were behind them though I can't remember for sure. By Sinead's legs is the patch of John's pants.
Because USTV did not show the Kerrs at all, the videos were taken from live streaming on Japanese TV by those amazing people on FSVids who can record from streaming, so maybe that's why it required a different codec.
Ice Dance Fan!

I thought about it but I'd never had that happen previously so I don't know. My friend gave me a name of a package to google and it's worked all right. I figure I'll just have to get used to using it for now.
I just want to say US tv as far as skating is concerned has been stinky as of lately. I haven't watched any of their broadcast aside from the last few dance teams in the bar while the skaters watched themselves... but they certainly didn't allot much time for anything. Thank goodness for the wide world web.
One other thing. I like hearing the blades, but I like to hear them on TOP of the ice as opposed to above the ice. Interesting for effect though.

Haha, no. ESPN put microphones in the ice. I believe there are 6. I like hearing the blades but the way we're hearing them on the broadcast is not the way they sound in person unless you're frozen into the ice. I would rather there be microphones on the boards above the ice picking up sound.
