QotD: Bought any iTunes Videos Yet?

Question: Have you bought any iTunes videos yet?

My Answer: I have not. I was tempted to grab the Pixar shorts, but I don't really want to look at my iPod to see them. I don't have any commutes, so the TV shows don't interest me (and I only watch one of them regularly anyway). The music videos may hold the most appeal, but I'm curious as to the audio quality of music videos.

  1. Nope. Not until they offer Battlestar Galactica or Aquateen Hungerforce for download.

  2. I got Coldplay's 'Fix You' merely to answer the same questions you're asking. All Quicktime will say about the video is "AAC (protected), Stereo, 44.100 kHz AVC0 Media, 320 x 176, Millions"... How useful!

  3. I think Comedy Central could offer individual bits of the Daily Show, like that girl who chops it up daily (nice small segments of 3 to five minutes) but apparently they have plans for basing a web community off of the concept.

    Adult Swim could do likewise, certainly. The fear is cannibalizing DVD sales. For daily content like the Daily Show, or a Letterman or Leno monolog or guest interview, who is going to bother packaging content that is produced DAILY. This is where I think ITMS video could really take off.

    BTW, Erik, I am concerned by your itch to watch these in your Toureg. While you are driving?

  4. I downloaded an episode of "Lost" just to see how the process would go. The video wasn't as high a quality as I would have liked, but it looks more than passable on the tv, and the prices are reasonable, per episode. However, like Derek, I'm not buying any more until there's content I want, namely BSG or ATHF.
