    Not sure - I know Google just made it possible with their service.

    On the other hand, Youtube is slow...:-/

    Link please!

    You may find that the videos are on your hard disk once you've played them through... in IE, go Tools - Internet Options, then click the Settings button followed by View Files. If you click at the top of the "Type" column it makes searching thorugh the list for video files easier. Anything you see in here can be copied and pasted to the folder where you'd normally keep this sort of stuff.

    the videos are not the best of quality, but i figure on my video ipod, since they display is small, it will not be horrible.

    as for a link, just go to www.youtube.com and search either Jaco Pastorius or Weather Report. You will have to seed out videos your not looking for but its not hard since they provide an image of the vid.
