    Just received an e-mail from the Apple store; "Please disregard the previous email you may have received regarding the Tiger seminar. Below is the correct link".

    Weird.

    Hmm I dont even have Tiger and I could watch it :p

    It was quite good, didn't learn a lot of new information TBH. But interesting no the less. It was nice to be able to stream it without any pauses (i love h.264), usually I cant stream video on my connection.

    H264 is unbelievable. I can't wait to watch WWDC in H264! :)

    Has anyone been able to view the webcast? I can't seem to get it to work. I assume the requests for this movie would be pretty high at the moment...

    bah, you have to install 10.3.9 to get QT7 ... this bites, I have an odd feeling after this update to 10.3.9 my machine is going to take a nose dive into unusability. It was working perfect on 10.3.7, wishful thinking i guess. *crosses fingers* i'm gonna be PO'ed if 10.3.9 destroys my otherwise perfect setup

    I really enjoyed the seminar - I never really understood how Automator could work until now.

    Does anyone know how to save it? I've tried everything I think, even ripping from the command line with mplayer, which fails :(

    Hey. What do you know. An acquaintance of mine, Kelvin, is in the video. He's interning at Apple and I guess he got to be part of the video. I was quite shocked when I saw his face show up on ichat!

    I liked it. It showed some additional things with Spotlight I hadn't quite figured out. And yeah, h.264 looks really good...

    Resemblance?

    Ken (the host) looks kind of like the penguin from batman. Ehhh?

    Not to be mean, but its the first thing that came to my mind.

    Need the new link

    Could someone please give me the new link to the Tiger Online Seminar because Ive noticed that people have said that Apple sent them emails with corrected links in them. I only have the original email and it brings up the error message:

    "The requested application was not found on this server."

    Cheers

    Ya know I have an email to the seminar, I wish I could save the movie locally
    to view it on my own. pluss I know it's supposed to be "exclusive" but this would be great to show to family and friends, I think they would be verry impressed and who knows might make the switch. or at least stop mocking it

    It streamed so nicely and the quality was great. I think that impressed me more that the content itself. I found much of the overview to be pretty helpful. It wasn't a waste of time but there is nothing really ground breaking. It is all stuff everyone will end up using so I'd say give it a quick look if you get the chance.

    I am having trouble viewing this thing. It buffers and starts, and I can hear the audio, but the video is either frozen, or it jumps ahead and shows just still pictures.

    I can however, watch the HD trailers posted on Apple's site with no problems.

    Any ideas?

    I don't have any new ideas, but I wish that Apple would at-least let those that purchased QT7 Pro download it, that might also encourage some people to purchase a QT7 Pro Key with it.

    my honest feeling is that I think they should have included the video with the installation disk(s) so that people after June 11 can see it, as well as those that are on dial-up.
    If anyone has any bright ideas on how to save it please share !!

    If it's a streamed video, there's little hope of getting a physical file.

    Does anyone have the link to it? ;)

    I wondered why the people on the iChat AV call were calling him Ken when his email said his name was Brandon?

    You could run one of those programs that records video on your desktop. They are made so you can make tutorials but you can just have it record while the QT seminar plays.

    Not sure if Apple would be happy with this, though. :p

    I watched it too, I was a pretty good overview. He managed to go over quite a bit in the 30 minutes or so that it is. I must admit though I'm tired of hearing about how wonderful the video chat is, lol. I know it's great and all, but for those of us without the interest of using a webcam... Anyway, learned a couple things that were handy from it and I liked the Automator demostration. Made it easier to make my first workflow! lol :D :D

    well I'm not interested in distributing it to the world (though it does confuse me why they're so protective of making it "exclusive")

    thanks for the advice I just might take it :) BTW are there any free programs that do this ?
    or would I be better off hooking one of my computers up to a firewire DV converter and recording it that way

    I had the same problem. The way I solved it was to go to System Preferences - Quicktime - Advanced, then choose HTTP from the Transport Setup. Quit Safari and then relaunch and your problem should be solved!
