8balljrn.mpg and rupertsb.mpg seem to stop at 22 seconds and 29 seconds,
respectively.  I appear to have the full file in both cases.  Are these
anims really this short or is my player funky?

I also notice bursts of artifacts in dryrun.mpg; has anyone else noticed
them?

Regards,
John

On dryrun, I saw artifacts after downloading onto two different PC's.
[Although I think there are pitfalls to public discussion before voting
ends,  I'll say that the artifacts in dryrun are particularly disappointing
because they occur exactly at places where I'd like to scrutinize the motion
to see just how impressed I am with it.]

My player (Windows Media Player 9) says that the animation is only 22
seconds long, but after 22 seconds it carries on playing and the timer
stops!

I also tried playing it using quicktime, and that shows the correct time.
But both programs play the whole animation.

I too had the bursts of corruption on dryrun, I tried that in a few
different players but they all show the same problem.

If you look closely, the MPEG encoder used for dryrun sampled the
colors at full resolution (instead of downsizing by 50% in each
direction).  You can tell because the red objects are at full detail
instead of being blocky.  This could be what's causing the problem.

John

Upon taking a second look, I observe that the anim was sampled at the
normal resolution for MPEG color.  Sorry if I misled anyone.

John

	They all play fine with mplayer on linux.
