that we have put the YouTube version on there instead of the usual
Flash. This means you are actually watching the video streaming from
YouTube’s web site, playing through the “skin” of the RBCC/Made-in-Alberta
web site. If you click the YouTube icon on the bottom of the video, it
will transfer you to YouTube’s own web site – with this week’s episode
still playing. From there, you can log in and leave a comment, which we
will read and respond to. If you don’t have an account, it’s free and
easy to set one up. Problems?
