    That's certainly how dansguardian works. It'll pull all the links on a page and run those pages through it's content filtering engine and aggregate the final page 'naughtiness score' based on the requested page plus where it links to.

    Actually ... the banner wasn't on the site when I posted the link ... and when I realised what was on there I let Nick and co know ... but the banner doesn't detract from the content of the site or podcasts in any way ...

    Re: IT Idiots

    Can I make another suggestion. Remove the word PodCast. To quote Maddox:

It would have been a great idea if streaming audio wasn't already around for over a decade before the word "podcast" entered the lexicon. Man, I can't stand the word "lexicon." Talking about all these shitty words has made me start using shitty words. I'm so pissed, I just slammed the door shut on some kid's nuts.

    Re: IT Idiots

    But 'podcast' describes what it is ... how it is delivered and some of the concept behind how you can watch it. It is the subscription model that is key to the phrase podcast allowing you to download it ... not watch a stream.

    Anyway ... why not allow the english language to be expanded ... it is not like we are americans and tied down to Websters! ;-)

    Re: IT Idiots

    But it's just a video played through a flash based media player? Is YouTube full of "podcasts"?
    Maybe this'd be better named as YouTubeCasts or FlashCasts or BlokesOnASofaTele (BOAST) or some other stupid nonsencical name.
    Or they could just call it a bloody Video like everybody else.

    Re: IT Idiots

    Hi Midget,

    It is NOT just a video played through flash, we merely offer this service so people may view the video files in low res whilst coming across our site. The best way is to subscribe to the xml feeds we offer and download the full versions either manually or through iTunes. This is a common misconception and something is a widespread problem with regards to what we and people like us offer.

    We offer 2 feeds for playing in quicktime, vlc, etc..

    1. http://feeds.feedburner.com/ItIdiotsh264 offers you higher resolution and better quality (requires better processor)

    2. http://feeds.feedburner.com/ItIdiots offers (640 x 400) ipod compatible viewing but is easier on the cpu.

    Thanks,

    Nick.

    There's only a 1.4MB difference in file size between the two :S

    Re: IT Idiots

    Thats because h264 is a much better codec for compression and allows you to squeeze alot more into the same space. Conversely flash which uses h263 codec is similar in file size but far less compression hence a reduction in quality.

    The h264 feed can be fullscreen on a 42" plasma and from a reasonable viewing distance be very watchable.

    Nick.

    Re: IT Idiots

    Learn something new everyday. What program do you use to encode into this format? I'll have to try it out later on the 45" RP TV to see how it compares to XviD

    On and Off looking at the Ubuntu show atm (shame you missed out adding it to a domain)
    I'll post up any non lexicon based complaints later if there are any.

    Re: IT Idiots

    Yeah- I would find it very hard to believe that there is *nothing* of interest in the ITIdiot casts if you work in IT at all.

    I find them very helpful- at times very funny- but always learn something new from every episode. I guess that's the key.
