Connected to the stream but this is what I get? :unsure:

That screenshot didn't capture what's happening on my screen, all the colors are weird psychodelic.

How much longer till it starts? I'm in a different time zone.

Apple's webcast are not in HD, they are just using H.264 for encoding. :rolleyes:

Try the latest one for nano, max you get is 640x360 I think.

In fact my iBook G4 (<1 yr) can't play most of the HD stuff on QT's website. it would be foolish to force HD when their laptop line + mac mini can barely handle the load.

Yeah, ok. You're right. But 640x360 H.264 is still miles better than a crappy 300kbps stream. Microsoft, the big game player, could at least manage a 700kbps stream.

All the HD stuff works fine on my laptop. But then again, I have no Apple. Though I tried them out in the Apple Store here in London. And it works fine.
