Hmmm... the data isn't downloading, apparently.

I think I'm definately going to have to try again later.

And for the record, Yoda looks totally CGI in that picture. It'll take some getting used to...

Sorry, I'm running late as it is. I have to leave town; no time to learn new computer stuff.

I'm sorry. I gotta go. And I wouldn't know how to do that stuff if I could.

But, load the small version, that's what I did.

Hey, I have a question for thosee of you that are able to view this: When you go to the site that let's you view the video, are you able to view the source of the web page in your browser? (Click View then Source at the top of IE). If so, you might be able to find the direct address of the file itself, which would end with ".mov"

Just a possibility. I did that with the breathing teaser so I could open it in a proper Quicktime window. If anyone can try to find the actual url of the movie, and post it here...

Oh hell... it's prompting me to download TWO files, and neither work! One's the "Mystery", the other's some kind of countdown thing.
Can I get it off of somebody, please? I've got cable!

DVT, try opening Quicktime then going to the "help" tab. Click "Update existing software"...of course, I've got Pro so you might not get that. There is a link to upgrade on the Episode II Footage page at dvd.sw.com.

I've tried a few things with the source code, and nothing works. I've been able to download hidden movies before like that; but not this one. I finally downloaded a file called (i think) myster108.mov but it was about 12KB in size and didn't play. Go figure.

Its a challenge. Hats off, I suppose, to Lucasfilm and apple.com for the security.

What is that, and what can I do to fix it?



ARGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!

Gettin the same error!!! It's NOT due to Quicktime version. I'm on 5.02. It's because freakin LFL doesn't have enough servers to stream the darn thing!!! You would think that they would LEARN by now that they get slammed for stuff like this!


Now, I have to wait about 12 hrs for the traffic to calm down, but I don't WANT TO WAIT!!

I think he just wants to know what the address of the web page is. That's what I'm trying to figure out, anyway.

Just post a direct link to the page where you viewed the teaser. Thanks.
