Topic tags/keywords: tv the woodwrights shop on demand video question

I’m just wondering if anyone else is having difficulty viewing the post 09/01/12 episodes. I’ve tried it on a couple of MacBook Pros with Lion and Snow Leopard (up to date Flash) but get a lot of digital artefacts and the audio is about a full minute out of sync.

For example:

http://video.pbs.org/video/2265289533

Promos and earlier videos still play fine, so I think the problem is at their end. I’ve enquired with PBS about it but get an auto response blaming it on the fact that I’m Canadian.

Sorry if this isn’t the proper forum.

It isn’t synced for me either. So, the problem isn’t that you’re a Canadian, unless I’m a Canadian and didn’t know it.

Same results for me when I just checked it, and I’m over 600 miles from the nearest Canadian border.

Thanks for checking that out. I hope they get it sorted out because they look like particularly good episodes.

Me too. Thought it was because I use a Mac but I guess it’s because I’m Canadian eh. (even though I’m about as far away for any international border as one can get here in Kansas)

I have the same problem with almost any video, I blame it on my internet connection speed but it could be my 10+ year old computer too, I’m Canadian living in Tennessee
