    Good it’s a separate video. Many people like Linux but don’t care at all about Android. There is a difference between computers and toys.

    Hey, can you make your site more android friendly and linux friendly? I even installed the super icky 32bit flash crap on my Arch linux box and I don’t see a ‘read more’ link or a video .. I’d love it if you could just direct link to youtube so I can watch in android’s YouTube player or *something. Right now I just can’t seem to watch the current episode on anything though..

      jeremy: I’ve watched videos on the site from my Android phone, tablet, and all of my Linux computers with no issues. Could the issue be that the videos are in HD?
      You mentioned installing 32-bit flash on your Arch system. Are you running 64-bit? It might be worth trying “Square” from the AUR. I’ve been running it for almost a year now with no playback issues.

      I would offer the videos in HTML5, but none of the video hosting providers I upload through seem to offer HTML5 to their viewers when the videos have ads on them. Sorry. :/

      That said, if you haven’t seen it already, this website is built almost entirely around a YouTube channel, http://youtube.com/thisweekinlinux, where all the videos are posted.
