I originaly produced this at 800x600 as a SWF with highest quality audio/video and the resulting file was a whooping 72,000 KB. I rendered ten different versions (6 in SWF with different audio sampling and video frame rates and sizes) and 2 in Quicktime and 2 in WMF.) In the end, I decided to produce as a SWF at 640x480 size with second to highest audio/video quality. I found that I don't like reading a script word for word, so what works for me is bullet points.

We managed to get a medium quality Quicktime stream that we put into Second Life, and higher quality Flash video stream , that we made available on the web. The streams worked great– except for Alan’s goof of forgetting until about 2/3 the way in, to swap the script we use to push the URL to the 10 sims we had set up, so our SL audience was likely turned off. We just sent it out, but it is really great to have people provide feedback in audio, text, or video form.
