Sharon, try again. I just checked it in both Internet Explorer 7 and Mozilla Firefox and it seems to be working fine.  As a last resort, here's a link to ActiveRain Video where I have this hosted. Let me know if either works for you. I'll be waiting to hear from you... thanks.  :-)

Cheryl - you are too sweet, thanks.  You should send it along with an invitation link from you, that way you get credit on AR if they sign up.  See the comment I wrote to Karen and Ray above?  It's about 3 comments above this one.  Thanks again.  :-)

Sharon - glad it's all better now.  :-)

Christine - thanks, it's really only useful to those who have not joined, but it did give me a chance to see if I could do it in 2 minutes, learn this video application, and see what statistics will tell me about a 2 min video versus a 5 minute video. 90% of those that viewed this watched 100% of the video.  The 5 minute video, more than 75% watched only 30% percent of it. That prooves that viewers like short videos.  A lot can b learned froma simple 2 minute video post on ActiveRain.  :-))

Terry - some people just need a little help and inspiration, those who have considered, but haven't joined, this might help them to see how easy it really is, and it does only take 2-5 minutes to become a member here.

Hi Brad..Great Comparisons, at first glance Vidder seemed one on top, but after watching AR, I'm convinced AR has the best for clarity and loading. Well Done,and thanks.

Cheers, have a great day!

Fred - this is weird, your comment on this post is one that should have shown up on the Video Comparison post, unless you meant for it to be here, very bizarrre.  Thanks, let me know if you intended to have this here or over on the video comparison post.  Want to see if maybe there was a bug in the system when you posted it. Thanks Fred  :-)

This video is the shortest video I think I have created on AR. 2 minutes is a record for me.  I have learned by using the AR Video Console and statistics that more people have viewed the entire 2 minute video than most videos that get posted.  Most of the time, people will only watch 1-2 minutes before they click stop or X on the page. Short video is good. Long video is only good if it has or shows something spectacular.  A great learning lesson in more ways than one.  :-)
