I thought I replied to your generosity of showing us your film already. I thought it was great, if I could talk my fiance into that it would be great. It makes the wedding about both parties rather than just the females. (insert the guinness animation characters voice here) BRILLIANT

Mark: would it happen to be available for download as well? I'm
having much problems streaming it for some reason (I am on
broadband, so should work)...

Sorry Rob, the executive producer has decreed that it not be available for downloading (and she's the boss now!).

I'd suggest that you try again a bit later. The file is a pretty high bitrate (750kbps) in order to preserve the quality of the film. While the servers it is on can handle the bandwidth and the connection on your end can handle the bandwidth, the internet in between can get tied up sometimes.

Please let me know if you're able to stream it as I'd be interested in hearing (could help me convince the boss). Also, what speed of machine are you on?

I have have two access points, both cable, 1 has low priced connection speed 1 has the high priced and I had problems with the "slow" broadband at the fiance's house, at home however it was perfect.

I'm on a 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 laptop with 1 GB of memory running
Windows XP. I just upgraded to Windows Media Player 10 for
you (hehe) and it plays it more smoothly but still needs to buffer
every 5 seconds or so (which is not too suprising with a 75 KB/s
stream => easy to disrupt that over the internet).

I'll try again shortly since most of the US should be in bed now,
see if that helps it.

I tried it and finally saw the piece. However, it was still almost
unwatchable. Instead of having to buffer every 5 seconds I think
10+ minutes of the movie played at a rate of 1 frame per 2 seconds!
Halfway through I decided to click on the progress bar just right
before the place where it stalls, forcing a re-buffer and a smooth
play.

It just seems impossible to watch this streaming without problems,
no matter what time I try. My connection should be fine, I have
a 2 mbit line (max 220 KB/s).

Anyways, I thought it was awesome, good job! Where people
still a bid unsure after seeing it if you got married or not?

And ofcourse congratulations to the both of you!

Thanks Jon!

Sorry you had streaming trouble Rob. Yes, we did get lots of questions from just about *everyone* who was there. "How did you make that?", "When did you make that?", "Where did you make that?" and of course "Does that mean you're really married now?"
