I'd DO want to watch them, but just not if they are LARGE movies.

it's not your bandwidth
damn sure is if I want to watch 'em

there are countless of sites out there with speedruns for snes, nes, xbox, pc, psx etc with files over 1gig....
Snes, NES, Megadrive, C64, Spectrum, I've all seen emulators which record compressed I/O instead of movies. Their files are 10's of Megabytes at most.

it's a cool thing to be able to download recorded games.
Sure is, specially if you aint too good at them, but were always curious what came next. Like me

This site has game recordings that takes over 2gig, I downloaded Contra for Ps2, it took 1.3gig.. wow, awesome game and that guy rules, not a second wasted.
Yeah, but there is no realtime PS2 emulator so that is a totally different ballgame.

Too bad you don't have the passion for recorded games.
I do, I just have better things to use my bandwidth on, especially when the technology is available so I do not to have to.

I'm not having a go at anyone, I am not saying that I am going to pick up VC++ .NET and implement it for WinUAE, I am just hinting, quietly and seeing if someone listens
