CNN International did a video segment on moblogging featuring Mie and her moblogging site. You can watch it (you'll need windows media player) here: Tech Watch


Dav, for some reason your link to Mie's CNN video will not launch.

Hmm, not sure why. But I just copied it to my own server and changed the link, so try it again.

It gives me the warning-
"This file may not play correctly because it was compressed by using a codec that is not supported".
I can see the video, but got no audio.
Ironic really, since the 'technology expert' is using my computer...

Say, anyone know of a software to convert wmv into mov or visaversa?

Posted by: james on August 21, 2003 11:01 PM

Yeah, I had to at first download it from the CNN site and save to disk, as I couldn't get it to play in Mozilla and had to open in directly in Windows Media Player ..after upgrading Windows Media Player when prompted. I'll see if I can somehow convert it to a better format....

CNN, isn't that aol? Whythehell are they using wmv anyway?

Don't worry about it Dav. It was good to see the pictures. Relax, revel in romance.
