No longer needed on modern hw

Of course, any patch cable will do between GigE adapters. No need for a crossover.

The video is nice, and the instructions are very clear, only the camera focused most of the time on the table surface, instead of cables.

I know, I just had my Flip camera with me -- it's fixed focus, and not really good at fixing the focus. :)

Crossover cable- that sounds handy. Now that I know how to make one another video showing how to use it would be excellent!!!

I love these tips. Shawn keep up the good work.

I know it is almost a defacto standard, but I can't watch flash video at work (blocked).
Btw I'm not a big flash fan.

Could you also provide the ogv download as you used to do before?
That way I can download the file and view it with vlc.
