  • Video Audio Problem

    by Michael Kolakowski,

    Hi, I just got done watching (or trying to watch) Matthew McCullough's presentation about Github Communication:

    The audio skips around pretty badly throughout. It was just good enough to keep watching and try to "fill in the blanks" but bad enough that I lost a lot of meaning and content. I would either see if there is a way to fix it, or simply take down the video.

    That said, please post more of his videos. He's an excellent speaker! :)
