Thanks, Dave, but my mac will not play your SM.com .wmv videos.
I am a Mac guy and it plays for me. I played it on both the new official Microsoft Flip4mac wmv app and on the old WMV app and it played on both. I have OS 10.4.4. I tested on the 0202 movie from skydivingmovies.com

my mahcine is fucked up or the server is down? thanks dave
Thanks for posting these video links. Try as I might, I cannot log onto the Skydiving Movies website using the instructions given. I'm disappointed that the camera team has chosen such a flawed venue through which to share the videos. Thanks to Pilot Dave for making them accessible.
I havent had a prob accessing the links, just click on the lin and when the skydivingmovies page comes up, scoll down to the download icon, right click on it and then select "Save Target as" option, pick a folder location on your PC and go. It's worked for me me every time. Good luck, Neil
I have a question - the video and pics are pretty awesome. The world team website discussed breakoff protocol and tracking for the team members but what about the camera men and women ? Do they also track off or remain in place and dump soon after the initial dump out or do they wait for other team members to track off and then dump low ? Wendy Smith's photos are awesome from beneath the formation - how the hell does she get out of there - Dump low ? Track off with 400 team members above here ! Must be pretty scary.
They are the unsung heroes ! Awesome job, well done.
We didn't "choose" this venue at first; the guy that runs the server that the WT site is on just quit his business and left us high and dry Leaving us with major server problems and no way to fix the situation while in Thailand. So, I looked for a quick way to still post the videoclips.
Needless to say, but I'll say it anyway, many thanx @ Dave for letting me dump the videos on him
The record vid has over 12.5k downloads already! Talk about bandwith
There're some more vids coming still, including the mass drop video, which is uploading right now at 11 kbps so I hope it doesn't time out *again*
Yeah, the WT videos pretty much trippled the number of hits from normal, and since I let these videos be downloaded without logging in, things got a little crazy for us and the bandwidth usage had to be limited. We got through Feb 9th at high download speeds, which was by far the busiest day on skydivingmovies.com ever (nearly 4x the average number of hits). Now we're in recovery mode, trying to get back to normal.
World Team 06 - Udon Thani, Thailand - Feb. 8th 2006 - A series of interviews done just after the 400-way jump, as well as the moment when we got the official news from the team captains, then the celebration, and a bit of BJ's speach to the team. Mostly centered around Sector 11 and the 5 mexicans, but also some short interviews with captains Craig, Rob Laidlaw, Rob Colpus, Rusty, Fernando, Larry, Solly, Dane, Louie, Roger as well as DZcommers like Flyangel and BillVon.
