Video info

Online videos are typically 4 frames per second, 720x480 in size to maximize the readability. Linux users should use the AVI file: Windows users with iTunes have Quicktime installed and should use the Quicktime version: otherwise, use the AVI. Mac users should use the Quicktime.

Also, note that is up to each speaker to choose to allow either a video or a DVD of their colloquium to be made. They can also elect not to have a recording made.
