derekimo, did you manage to find out why the video links aren't working for you?
both of Swanson Photos's video links don't work for me either, and in Windows 7 Forums - Videos there are no videos listed under any of the headings!?!

edit: I use Firefox, and thought that it may be the issue so I just checked in IE, with the same result. However, when I am logged out I can follow the links ok.... strange

No I didn't, and it sounds like you did all the same things I did except I tried chrome instead , and I noticed no videos listed too. I figured I'd just keep checking back and if not , oh well. good luck with that.

This has been resolved now it appears.

It appears also that once again additional add-ons were interfering, causing issues, with something that works well normally...I need not say more, but will: Poorly written software performs poorly - no surprise there.

Can't view forum videos
"I made some changes to the usergroups to combat spammers, I missed reseting the video permissions for the standard users"

Doesn't appear to be anything to do with add-ons or poorly written software. It was a slight oversight in the coding of this forum...

"Sorry, John, but the link isn't available in all skins. It is available in the default, which is probably why the OP was able to view them without being logged in. It isn't available, for example, in the skin that I use - SF Blue Wide. Would it be possible to make these into a main forum category so that they appear in the main list along side the others? "

This quote is right above your quote.

I don't remember changing the forum skin, unless it was an option that I set during the sign up process, otherwise, it's all default.

Just to keep tabs: As of 11-25-2009 @ 12 AM of the 398 folks who have viewed the poll, 9 prefer other video formats. That's 2.26 folks out of 100.

Dude, using your own rationale 4 people out of the 424 who have viewed this poll have voted in favour of the default .wtv/dvr-ms file formats, that's 0.94%.....

You provided my answer, but not the question:

"At this stage, being as no-one else has divulged information regarding a built in, Microsoft supplied conversion program that will perform this task, the options seem to be limited to either: a) don't bother, b) commercial software or c) free software."

I knew that would be the response...

If you review my posts, and why it appears you decided to create the poll, you will see that you have forgotten about a particular group: those with no opinion on the matter. Even if you combine preferences polled, it is still close to 2% that even have a preference...or A) don't bother (or care)
