In particular, video and audio running out of sync seems to be a royal pita under Windoze. I have not had the time yet to 'really' fiddle with my dv cam and do much cutting but I can recall my dad complaining very much so about various shortcomings of xp windoze. Which I could neither locate nor fix at that time.

But I'll try to stop picking on systems I don't understand; all I want to say is that not all that shines is made of gold, and so is windows. With protocols, you may build a large pipe of 'converters' since the protocols are designed to sort it out by themselves. I'm not sure whether that's true for a/v data (*). 

Just a couple of cents from the really back benches...



(*) Nonetheless, I'd not mind to see it working ;-)==)
