Test Post - please don\'t respond.

Need a topic for each download method

Each download method topic needs a sticky with the currently agreed Best Practice.

Each download method needs a topic for people to debate things and then feed the output into Best Practice

Or something like that...

Best Practice - VLC

Info:

Downloads in: real time (i.e. it takes as long to download as it did to play)

Software:

Linux: It\'s in the repositories
Windows: Click Here (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html)

Example download:

Download from Beebotron
Highlight link => Right Click => Copy Link Location (or whatever your browser offers)

Open VLC => Media => Convert / Save => Network => Paste into Address field => Convert/Save =>
Fill in Destination File (yourname.mp3 or whatever) => Profile - set to:  Audio - MP3 => Start

Wait until the download finishes, and then exit VLC.

?? Do we need a separate topic for Windows / Linux versions of the same software? How do we know?
