The flash videos appear to autostart on some browsers (which can cause some readers problems with their browser), so the video is posted after the fold. If both autostart on you, just pause the second part. If there is any problem loading either video, just click on the video itself and you will be taken to my UStream page. Apologies for any trouble, this is the first time using a new video system.
