      YouTube makes my eyes bleed. How about some coverage in HD [].

        Episode 8 links in the upper left contain a higher quality xvid version, as well as an ipod version. The videos over 500 megs (50 mins long), so youtube helps out a bit for those without broadband, or that prefer streaming versions. WMV encode is in the works

          In further thinking about this, and because we could use the feedback, I'm wondering..does HD matter much for content such as this?

          Our xvid is an encode of a DV-AVI which starts out as higher than DVD quality (740x480, lower compression than mpeg2 off our panasonic camcorders). We encode it down heavily balancing quality with file size, trying to make each episode a reasonable download. When shopping for camcorders for the show, I looked at HD camcorders, and rejected them because we're a free, non profit

    I'll be sure to check out the cosplay interviews. Sounds like something very informative and interesting....

  • I did a 1:45:00 interview podcast where I interviewed a few of the game makers at PAX such as Red Octane, Microsoft, Rockstar Games, and even the Penny Arcade guys. I also interviewed some of the attendees to find out their opinion on the show and gaming. I thought I'd throw in my site so you can get a better feel about the event from a podcasters eye. []
