I was sent a link today for a Forrester webinar that has as its technical requirements: Windows Media Player 6, Real Player 5, and IE 5 or Netscape 6. It doesn’t play on my brand new MacBook with OS X 10.4 and Firefox. And Firefox can’t find plug-ins to make it work. This is a joke in the day of ubiquitous Flash video that plays on any browser on any platform. Forrester, get with it.
I won’t miss “the old days” of video on the internet. Bring on YouTube and flash video!
