    It bugs me that you cannot speed up the audio and you cannot move the status bar ahead…

    who has time to watch about Dundas, etc?

    Holly, actually, you can drag the status bar. But like many streaming videos, you have to wait till the stream loads ‘in the background’ before you can drag it ahead. For example, here at GBM today, 6 min of video ‘loads’ in about a minute.

    Of course I waited, Griff. 😉 But it isn’t important, really. Never mind, I was just complaining.
