They're busy putting high speed ads on my doorknob as I type. You'd have to be living under a rock here (USA) not to see all the ads on television for high speed. They're pushing it hard but most of us are simply waiting till it comes down to U$10-15 a month. The industry wants to keep the price high.

It's as simple as this...Windows OS comes bundled with Internet Explorer and Media Player. Lots of casual users don't know there's anything else. Microsoft was sued and told to unbundle them...but it hasn't happened yet because they haven't released a totally new OS.

About 70% of the videos I've seen online are .wmv with about 10% .mov's and 10% mpegs.

edit:: also real media 10%

Regardless, video is hot. If I wasn't busy editing almost 10 years of my own, I'd be out shooting performers videos.

What's cool about high speed is that they're complete movies on the internet in the new DivX format. Some stand alone DVD players are now supporting DivX.

Personally, I think this video Niels pointed to is one of the best I've seen.

Lots of good stuff out there...hilarious

I don't know if this helps at all, but every one I know has high speed and I know exactly 18% of America.

I'll buy that.
The industry has been pushing it here for the past year and have probably increased their sales 5%. This doesn't sound like much but translates into millions of new monthly subscribers.

I saw the other thread on filetypes...

Do you have records to back up these figures?
