Woz, Kawasaki and lousy flash video players

Great interview. Shame I can’t see it as the video player and my orcon/xtra broadband are lousy.

Will flash video creators please realise that not only do people have variable speeds of internet access, but that we also have variable quality. Once I get a dropoff from a youtube or, it seems, a zbiz, video then that is it – the movie stops.

Once the movie stops I am done – there is no ‘reload’, no ‘try again from here’, no’connection reset’ error (a la iTunes). It is just toast, and burnt at that.

As for streaming – and Apple is guilty of this with their Steve Jobs shows – it simply doesn’t work. Traffic speeds are too erratic and the result is a stop start experience that eventually grinds to a halt.
