Best Discovery!! Best Discovery!! Big News!!

BRILLIANT UPDATE!!!: Ryan Ricks fixed everything. A variety of smaller versions of the video are now available!

As the Man said himself in the comments:

small windows media - 4MB

slightly larger windows media - 9MB
http://www.davesmotors.com/files/ryantemp/briggiebetteraudio.wmv
realmedia - 9 MB
http://www.davesmotors.com/files/ryantemp/briggierealmedia.rm
mpeg - 23 MB

I was clicking around on the internet and discovered that Lexia has posted a 77mb version of "Personal Best" (a.k.a. "The Video Where Brigham Holds His Breath From So Long Ago") This is a lot more manageable than the multiple-gigabyte version I have on my computer. Anyway. No more talking!

CLICK HERE to see the totally amazing movie experience you've been dying to see!

(It's a direct link so you can right click or option click to save it to your computer)

Gracias, Lexia.

Doh! This was supposed to be a test version ONLY, Brigham! I don't think that website has enough bandwidth to manage all of the downloads. I still need to get it down to 10mb (I just don't have the software to do so; rather I don't have the $500 to do so). Errr, would it be too much to ask you to temporarily remove the link until I upload a smaller one? Maybe I could have a friend compress the file this week. Dang it! I knew you would discover this.

I've copied the link.

I can download the file this evening and resize to any size you like.

I can then email it back to you or post it somewhere so you can download.

If you'd like me to do this, let me know - ryan.ricks@asu.edu

Fear not. File has been downloaded and will be resized later this evening after I can leave work.

Stay tuned.

Some codecs are bigger than others; some codecs are bigger than other codecs mothers...

Quality on some of these may be less than optimal, but oh well.
