It would be great if we could rewind or forward Richard's video, allowing us to view a portion of it in one sitting, and to come back another time. Presently, it starts back at the beginning each time.

Love 'em, they're great! Keep 'em coming. Super job.

There is a small square button beneath the video that you can drag forward or backward to jump around.

Have you actually got that button to work?

Why wouldn't it work?

The slider button may not work right away, you have to wait for enough of the video to download before you can move it.

Hi Richard -- I've tried several times -- I move the slider, but it snaps back to the beginning. The slider's great "in theory," but I don't think it works.

It works fine for me. As Joe said, you have to let enough video download, but for me that was very fast.

Oh, I haven't used it as a download -- only as a streaming video -- thank you.

I think you've misunderstood. You can't download it, it only functions as streaming video. You just have to allow the video to fully load.

Another neat thing would be to have a time code (ie:2:24) so we'd have a sense of how long the clip is.

May not be possible to get it in, of course. The icon is already small . . . maybe in the rollover?

Unfortunately I have no control over these things: the work is subcontracted to a company by our printer and this is the software available to us at this time.

Oh--forgot to answer your questions: "More Genii Speaks" is always about 20 minutes.
