I think, putting that to U2be (*.flv) might be a good idea, perhaps in Urs' channel.

You're welcome if you wish to do so. It has been uploaded to greybeardz.com too.

If anyone is familiar with the process, it could probably do with uploading to a more permanent web archive.

I have converted the files to mp4 with Handbrake (it'll do .avi as well I think), though I haven't looked at whether it'll reduce the resolution to make smaller video files for those who wish to view on mobile for example. Seems pointless uploading those at the moment as they're almost as large as what's on the DVD, but if there is interest in having lower resolution copies online I'll see what I can do. Although Darren gave permission for me to put it online, I'd suggest out of courtesy that if you wish to put it on You-Tube for example that you ask Darren first.

I chose to upload the .iso image of the DVD as it includes some QL software on the DVD too which would be lost if it was made into just 10 chapters of video files.

Perhaps if you do re-host I could include the URL on my page as an "alternative" location in case i do run into bandwidth issues - I confess I don't know from memory what my monthly bandwidth is!

Downloading now, since I probably have the fastest connection. I can
re-host if you like, to reduce Dilwyn's bandwidth bill?

Darren Branagh has kindly given me permission to make available an .iso
image of "QL 2002 The DVD". Being an .iso image, you can burn your own copy of the DVD for posterity with most DVD burner software. A scanned image of
the DVD sleeve is also available.

It was originally released in 2002 by Q-Celt Computing in Ireland, edited
and produced by Stephen Reyal and Darren Branagh.

The DVD was shot on location at the 2002 Quanta Annual General Meeting and Workshop in Manchester and gives an insight into the QL scene at that time,
some 20 years after the QL was first conceived by Sinclair Research.

Presented by Darren Branagh, there are interviews with key players in the QL world, historical information, a tour around the dealers' tables and a
look in on the Quanta AGM itself.

Please note that this is a very large file to download. The .iso image is
about 3GB in size even when zipped.

My thanks to Simon Foster whose request to locate a copy of the DVD led to
me seeking permission to make this available.
