    My WWW connection is running about 15 seconds behind the AIR screen.

    Things are running very well today on AIR and WWW. Highlights are working, too. My biggest complaint for the overall test is that the video window size is fixed at the one size or full screen. When I go fullscreen, everything falls apart. Watching the fixed screen in a window is OK, but it is very small on my 24" monitor. I'd like to be able to resize or at least double size the video portion.

    I would agree with that. Full screen accentuates the blockiness on fast motion way too much. The window really should be able to be sized any way you want it - pretty much like any other MS-Windows/X-windows app - click a corner/edge and drag.

    I voted "No but I was earlier" because I had opened up Supercast and tried this morning and got time-outs between 4 and 26 minutes, then at 1:50 CDT I got ready to try again and forgot. D'oh!

    EDIT: And of course, about 5 minutes after I started, I timed out anyway. C'est la vie.

    Streaming AIR client with video quality set for high today during the test. Picture good and audio good. A bit 'blocky" with screen size set for full screen.

    Sorry, I totally forgot today. I was replacing the icemaker in our refrigerator and forgot all about it until I just logged in to catch up on things now.

    Maybe it has to do with your particular video card(s) and/or driver(s)...?

    I've got an 24" iMac with a Radeon HD 2600 Pro and the macroblocking isn't that bad if you remember what resolution the original video is being streamed. But, it's REALLY noticeable with action, i.e. football.

    I ran 2 instances of WWW and one of Air today, all on the same PC. All 3 ran fine from 10.30AM EDT until around 7:30PM. Now running one instance of WWW for the Cowgirl v Texans game. Running fine.
