Hi Chris, 

Can you up the resolution of the recorded lecture or increase the terminal font size?  
The terminal commands are to close to the limit for recognition.  I am really just 
listening to you talking and guessing what are are typing via context.

Regards,

Nathan

Thanks Nathan, yes, definitely very difficult to read.
I'll increase the font size, and place less on each window (and hence less white space) next week.

Unfortunately, it's not a fault in the original recording, but one in the transcription process 
used by Echo360 to reduce the file-size of recordings (video and audio) so that they're 
easier/smaller to download.

Here's a copy of the original MP4 file, for comparison:

  http://teaching.csse.uwa.edu.au/units/CITS4407/lectures/CITS4407-lecture-week7.mp4  (170MB)

Hope that helps, and I'll keep it in mind for next week.

Thanks for reporting the problem.

Hmm, I just downloaded the 1080p MP4 from Echo360, and it clocks in at 130MB and seems pretty readable. 
The Web Player often defaults to a 480p version that is hard to read, but that can be changed through 
the Echo 360 player settings for those that aren't aware.
