Customer Reviews

HD is great - but only if videos actually play!

It's fantastic that TED has gone HD - unfortunately a number of the episodes do not play back properly on an AppleTV. This is the only HD podcast that I've had the problem with, so I'm fairly confident it is TED-related. UPDATE: It is now a great deal of time later, and the problem persists. Most of the Ted HD podcasts will not play on the AppleTV. Considering this is the Apple iTunes Store, this is very strange. Does nobody at Apple even check these things? Or scan through the reviews? Does noboby at TED care either?


My wife and I have been thoroughly enjoying the TED talks. So much so we bought an AppleTv for the kitchen just to watch them while we cook. Recently some of the newer episodes won't play. In fact they actually cause my AppleTV to lock up (!) which is only resolved by unplugging the AppleTV and restarting.
This is very frustrating.

If I open the files in Quictime and look at the specs the only difference I can see appears to be resolution specs: the old resolution was 850x480, where the newer talks are 853 or 854 x480. Is this what is screwing them up? I don't know...but I sure wish they'd fix the darn things.


These are great podcasts. I watch them from iTunes only. Unfortunately they don`t work on my ipod nano. I read reviews on the web from many people having similar issue. I do hope this issue gets resolved since I enjoy watching these short video clips.
