Shame it was only a slide show, and on my PC her voice had echo on it, like she recorded it with 2 microphones spaced too far apart. And the audio was clipping.

I was going to watch it over the weekend. From Kevin's comments I won't bother.

Thats odd. I watched it and didn't notice either problem.

I did watch it live via my Iphone and its headphones. I did nor notice any problems with the audio and found it quite an interesting video. Certainly a lot more interesting than what was on the television at the time.

The audio varied through the presentation as though the voiceover was recorded in several sessions with different levels. The echo effect was as though she was using an external mic and forgot to mute the mic on her laptop, or else was in a large room with a lack of soft furnishings. My sound came through 2 large speakers spaced well apart.

I was just disappointed that it was a powerpoint-style presentation rather than a film or documentary which I'd been hoping to see.

Please make up your own mind, dont let me put anyone off!
