Thanks for the kind words.
First of all: The time with the really crappy quality of the Flash movies on youtube are over.
From now on they encode with Quicktime H.264 - deal was made these days with Apple. Has something to do with the new i-Phone and Apple-TV.
So they started now to encode all new movies with H.264 and convert all the old ones.
About Lynux: these are the specialists using this system - not normal end-users. So hopefully they should have the knowledge to bring some easy movies to work - lol.
Ubuntu: sounds like something from the jungle???!!! works with gas or fire??? Sorry, just got information from their website: Ubuntu 'Just Works' - so no problem.....

This may not be the proper place to point this out but it is "on-topic". Have you considered posting the videos in Adobe Flash format? This is the same technology that powers YouTube and other video sites. I know I'm a very rare minority here but I use a Linux-based desktop and Quicktime doesn't work quite as well (yet.) It's a bummer because I have to download a video if I want to watch it, the streaming browser plugin sucks for Firefox on Ubuntu Linux and I can't watch the videos straight from the web.
Just a thought, there may be other benefits - such as a wider audience that has the Flash plugin in their browser vs. the Quicktime plugin, which requires a separate download and installation. I'm pretty sure the streaming technology is more efficient as well (better video compression and quality.)
And again, thanks!
