Does anyone know what is necessary to view blip.tv with free software? I have only ever seen big white space with bliptv URLs. ( I use gnash, which works on youtube and occaisional other sites but most video-embedding fails).
One could ask the related question, why is the conference uploading to a site that can't be viewed with free tools? At least it doesn't print a big banner telling me I haven't got a flash player installed.
Kudos to whoever provided the snippet for fishing out the real video URLs so it's easy to ignored the 'easy flash interface'. <hollow laughter here>
