Updates on R&DTV

Quick post following up on our R&DTV experiment. So far we've had some useful feedback and fixed a couple of bloopers. Ooops.

The 5 minute Ogg file was a slightly old pre-final-edit version, where around 30 seconds of video were obscured. We've updated that now. It's in the same location on the FTP site - if you downloaded it previously, you might want to get it again. Or not, it's up to you.

All the other versions are fine. The versions up on the torrent sites seem to be the 30 mins version, so they're all good too.

The Guardian were very nice about these baby steps, we're on digg.com, TorrentFreak, currently on the front page of the Creative Commons site, and some of the lists seem to like what we're up to.

This'll be on archive.org soon and is on some of the torrent trackers I've seen.

Follow RAD or Backstage on Twitter for live-ish updates. Watching the search on Twitter for updates is fun for us as we see this spread.

Some of the commentators delve into questions that are most certainly not for us to answer - however, questions about codecs, next steps, etc, definitely are, so send them in to rdtv@bbc.co.uk and we'll try and answer in between eating chocolate bunnies.
