Better Video Distribution
I'm a paid subscriber, I'd like to be able to subscribe to my "subscriber" feed, and get all the latest videos available to me.
I'd also love a download link on the episode page, since every episode stops playing about 90 seconds in when watching in Chrome for Mac.
Ouch, that is pretty slow. Clearly I need to book a trip to New Zealand to "test" :)
I'm investigating adding a CDN, and will update this thread once I do. Thanks for letting me know.
I use my private download feed with Downcast on the iPad and it's excellent. The only issue I face is that being in New Zealand, the download speeds are very slow, usually around 20kB/s. I'd love to see the videos provided using a CDN for better international speeds.
Have you tried the flash player? Google Chrome seems to have issues with the videos and their HTML 5 player.
Also, subscribers get a private video feed they can use to subscribe in iTunes to download the videos.

I'm a not-paid-yet user from china, there seems a little problems for me to play it online,if there's a download link like RalisCast, I think I'd like to pay for it : - )
Ethan - I'm working with my video player provider to see what the fix is. They said "In the meantime, you can use Flash on Chrome" -- which sucks.
I'm looking into providing a fallback HTML 5 video player.
@Jake - Do you still want a download link on the videos? Or does the iTunes subscription suffice?

Videos are still flakey for me (May 11, 2012; Chrome, OS X)
On your 'my account' page there is a private feed link that will give you all of the access to all videos. Also the chrome issue should be resolved with the latest version of chrome for Mac.
