Windows Vista, XP and Online Video sites

I managed to completely trash my Windows Vista installation – it says not enough memory, and Internet Explorer crashes as soon as it loads.

So, copied my documents (which includes itunes library) over to the XP partition, rebooted to XP and had to do a number of updates. iTunes is all set, including Audible, and, yes it runs faster.

Orb = https://mycast.orb.com/orb/html/login.html

Miro = http://www.getmiro.com/download/windows.php

I had to invest in a copy of Vista Boot Pro (http://www.vistabootpro.org) to set the default boot. So, why is this Vista MBR manager better than boot.ini which I could edit with any text editor?? NOT complaining about Vista Boot Pro, complaining about VISTA.

Other video sites -> http://zattoo.com

www.viddler.com – I probably can’t do the description justice, but it’s kind of like www.youtube.com, but not quite. In addition, it allows tagging of the video. I don’t think I can do the description justice, so perhaps you should take a look at it, or listen to Leo and Amber talk about it at http://twit.tv/natn44

http://www.hulu.com – Watch TV shows, etc, but this is an official site, with good video quality. Not public yet. From http://www.hulu.com/splash/about.html, “Hulu’s ambitious and never-ending mission is to help you find and enjoy the world’s premium content when, where and how you want it.”

http://animoto.com/ Kind of hard to explain, but you take music and photos, it analyzes tempo and stuff like that, and makes a mini “movie” or like a music video from it.

(Yes, this is a mash of previous posts)
