I viewed the video from Europe on a pc with Firefox 3.5.
No registration is required.
Everything ran smoothly except that the sound was a little bit lower
than (for example) the intro video of screencast.com itself.
Even if a little lower, the audio was perfectly clear. all in all an
excellent way to deliver a presentation.

So most problems seem to be Safari or Mac related. Or perhaps user-PC
related.
I read that it should also be possible to download the presentation on
your computer. If this is so, many problems could be solved.

screencast.com is a repository of online videos. One of the main
differences with youtube.com is that you can upload videos longer than
10 minutes.
