Viewer Question: In 2006 I took it upon myself to learn Linux. Is there any script or application to clean up Linux sound systems, fixing the mix of ALSA, PulseAudio, OSS, etc?
Viewer Comment: I'm not installing Adobe Flash for political reasons, but also technical ones (it's crappy software). This means I can't watch live. I think YouTube works with Gnash.
Why Robbie thinks non-free software is sometimes important, and we shouldn't be over-the-top about using free-as-in-freedom software since some application developers simply don't want to release proprietary code--but want you to be able to use their tools.
Viewer Comment: I chose to use Freenas instead of unRAID because I found unRAID to have poor performance.
Robbie defends unRAID, and its performance. Suggestion: Cache drive.
Viewer Comment: ZFS is the best filesystem.
Viewer Question: I setup a ReadyNAS NV+ on my network but can't backup to it from Linux. Can you help?

Viewer Question: I was watching an episode of Category5 where you were demonstrating some things with Wirecast. Very informative! My question is, when I record to disk using Wirecast, how do I get that video onto a playable DVD? Do I have to convert the Wirecast recorded file to something different?
Recording to disk in Wirecast is going to save to whatever file format you specified when creating the record to disk profile.
