Rich has a moog theremin, Wesley has his throat.

Our house is so peaceful.

Rich looks so funny theramining. Mat, I can't seem to get sound on any of my players - totem/VLC both give the video but no audio, do you know of a fix/alternative? (this is a 3gp thing I think)

mplayer might work. I think it's in the package tree these days, but if not, google it. There's a known issue with AMR audio (as often used in 3GP video encapsulation) and linux, although afaik, it's only impossible on 64bit systems.

if mplayer won't do it, it's probably not do-able. mplayer is the greatest media player for any platform, imho.

tbh, the video is almost certainly funnier without the audio. :)

ah craps, since your running 64bit it's fine for you of course - yes, mplayer dont work neever - I assume the issue with AMR is that it's a proprietary closed format? Ill see if I can't find something through Automatix, cheers.

ed - and yeah, incredibly funny without audio.

in a wonderful Irony, frickin real player for linux plays AMR. Still funny with audio, although it's Rich's strangely beatific shaved child-like face contorting as he 'mins which really makes it.

Wesley might well get snapped up by a band if he continues with his spot on impression of a theremin
