Maybe its the democracy of it, or maybe I’m just a huge geek, but today the ABC offered for download their first video podcasts, and I’m frieken psyched.
Available for download are The Chaser’s War on Everything (75mb) and JTV (38mb). You have the choice of MP4 or Windows Media formats.
They both have their own consumer advice (left) and don’t seem to have any rights management, I’m not sure if international users will be able to access the site, but good luck to them.
The quality is pretty good for the file size, and don’t forget you can play the MP4’s in full screen in iTunes and VLC so don’t worry about not having a video iPod.
Hopefully Media Watch, Spicks and Specks and the news are just a “trial” away.
