    Hi, Your podcasts are not downloading in iTunes. it’s been a while. Corrupt files?

      No issues on this end. Stats show as many downloads as always. Perhaps your ISP is blocking or throttling video downloads? Can you get to http://blip.tv? — that’s where the videos are served from.

    Gary,
    Worth noting that, unlike Windows, files can still be in use though in the trash. As new Mac user I had (and used) Quicken data files though they were accidentally in the trash. After several months when I emptied the trash I lost everything.

    When are you going to stop using Flash, I would like to watch on my iPhone.

      You can definitely watch on your iPhone. I’ve enabled that in several ways. First, you can go to http://macmost.com/iphone.html and watch versions of the videos that are specially made for the iPhone and streaming over wireless. Second, you can subscribe to the podcast at http://macmost.com/itunes.html and those will sync and play on your iPhone like podcasts do, even without a connection.

      Do a search for “MacMost” and it comes up right away. At least in the U.S. It differs by country, I think.
