thanks for the great info about podcasts -- including a couple of offers by email to host my podcasts-to-be! i should start something soon, an irregular set of short podcasts.
another question: i have this great video from francois gautier, but it's on a VCD -- about brahmins and upper caste hindus working as coolies, toilet-cleaners, farmhands, etc., giving the lie to the idea that they are all living off the fat of the land.
i think it's a pretty good polemic. i'd like to get it uploaded to youtube or something as san suggested. (is youtube the same as google video these days? i am not into video -- don't even have a digital camcorder, although years ago i was one of the early adopters of the sony camcorder in the bad old analog days (that poor camera, which was great, died, alas, in the middle of a trip to bali, which was rather unfortunate to say the least).
how can i turn this VCD content into mpeg or whatever and upload it to youtube? any technical advice received gratefully
