The Te Papa Squid webcast of the colossal squid dissection is now up for your long term viewing pleasure. To bad smell-o-vision still isn't a reality or you could really "live" the entire experience.
This thing was great. I'm no expert, but I know what I like, and I like watching kiwis cut up tentacles the size of fire hoses.
I do so wish I could get this running on a mac - I've downloaded VLC, but to no avail it seems. Safari and Firefox don't dig the ASX format either, apparently. Does anyone have any advice?
Good question. I do know that you can get Window's Media Player for a Mac (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/video/windowsmediaplayerformacosx…). You can also try Flip4Mac (http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv_download.htm) which I use.
My Firefox also doesn't seem to like the link and I can't seem to paste the stream into Quicktime (with the Flip4Mac extension).
Any other suggestions for Mac users?
Downloading Media Player also didn't seem to help, sadly; pasting the target URL into the "Open URL..." field in WMP looked promising for a moment, until the program helpfully informed me that "There has been an error." Too bad, as well - I just watched the MV dissection of the giant squid last week, and I was hoping to continue the trend of watching folks from the southern hemisphere slice into massive cephalopods.
