Re-Splicery Strikes Back
I love seeing Myst user-created work. To me, these creations are an expansion of the Myst universe. Myst has become much larger than the strictly controlled ideas upon which it was designed and, in this sense, Myst is weirdly out of control.
Every once in awhile, one of these Myst-offsprings really stands out. Such is the case with Justin Norman's latest installment in his ever expanding Re-Splicery series: Dismissive-Complacent Disorder. You simply must watch this... it really hits home.

I can't seem to get any of those videos to work. They buffer, but never play. All I get are the words "replay". Odd.

Although I haven't been able to replicate this problem on any browser (Mac or PC) that I've tried, it seems a few people are experiencing this same issue repeatedly. One possibility is that the latest version of Flash is not installed. If, for instance, you're using Flash 7 instead of 8, you will never see the video, even though the "buffering" and "replay" messages appear, due to the messages being backward-compatible and the video not being so. If you click the "Flash 8 required" link at the bottom of the Re-Splicery page, you should be able to install the latest version. I'm not sure if that will remedy the problem, but it's worth a shot!

I believe I've remedied the video-viewing problem for those with slow connections. If you are having issues similar to Zach, try clicking the new "lo-fi" option (alongside the large and small options). The "lo-fi" links provide non-streaming Quicktime versions of the videos. Sorry for the technical issues, and thanks again to everyone who's watching.
