Hello James!
That video link is intriguing however it doesn't allow viewing for
normal mortals. How do we see what's in there? Is there any good
training stuff?

As a workaround for Linux's lack of non-linear editing (NLE) tools
perhaps post the vids to a central place i.e. your google apps video
link and then users/editors can dnld the vids from there and edit in
the many different NLE (free) tools avail on Mac and Win*?
