By some unexplainable coincidence I watched two new videocasts/vodcasts/vidcast. There couldn’t be further away than they are, but both are quite cool and worth looking at.

My favorite podcast guru Carl Franklin started dnrTV few days ago. I didn’t want to watch it online so I had to wait for downloads to become available. They are available only as torrents but I don’t mind that. I use µTorrent which is really simple, lightweight torrent client and it works great. But I can see it is a problem for those who download their content at work since there is no admin that will one a port for you in order to download torrents. Although dnrTV is 100% legal BitTorrent has too much bad reputation.  

DnrTV

51times.tv is new Slovenian vidcast made by Dulc and Mare. I know Mare personally so when he started talking about 51times.tv on his blog I knew it’s going to be cool. It’s available in couple of formats and download rates are excellent by any standard. I have to ask them what hosting plan the chose…

Back to dnrTV, it’s video version on DNR, while you here Carl (and Miguel in episodes 1 and 2) talking you can watch the guests screen while he’s coding. Although this might sound like a good idea, I always though podcasts were cool since I cool fill my otherwise unproductive time while driving with something cool. It beats reading because it doesn’t require 100% attention. And reading is cool since you can scan the blog (or article of anykind) and by that fastforward it. But I’m not sure about the vidcast. It’s just too time consuming for me. I can’t sit still and watch it but if I try to do anything while watching it I keep missing the important parts. Any fast-forwarding isn’t even an option. So I seriously doubt I will become dnrTV regular.

Vidcast by 51times.tv is somewhat different. It’s cool, it’s fast. So you probably guessed it had nothing to do with computers, right? It’s a snow boarding show! Try not to watch it while sitting in foggy Ljubljana behind a computer, you could develop some serious jealousy! I know I did. If you know someone who could sponsor those two enthusiasts, drop them an email. I’m subscribed and wating for the next episode…

Update: I was talking about BitTorrents reputation being bad in send paragraphs, not dnrTV's of course.

I think you meant that BitTorrent has a bad reputation. No?

Thanks for the kind words!

Sure, Carl. I was talking about Torrent. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough. I share your pain regarding bandwidth, though. I always use torrents to download your show. And love them to. Keep up the good work!

Look for the vodcast in iTunes library 'Ask A Ninja'. Short, funny, makes your day.
