Another way to "see" Enhanced ReCasts - - QuickTime Player for Windows

I had forgotten that Apple's QuickTime Player can be used to listen to/watch enhanced media, so for those of you that are on the Windows platform, you can use QuickTime for Windows to listen/watch the enhanced files posted here.

1. Install QuickTime for Windows on your computer.

2. Assuming you have been downloading manually from the archive.org link, download the Apple Lossless Audio version of the episode instead of the mp3 version.  If you subscribe to an rss feed of the podcast, you're getting the Apple Lossless version already.

3.  Watch in QuickTime for Windows.

As a reminder, from now on the disclaimer at the bottom of each episode page will read as follows:

Use either iTunes (any iPod device), QuickTime Player (Mac/Windows) or the freeware VLC media player to play this tagged version (Apple Lossless).    WARNING:     Converting this file to another audio format - even .mp3 format -  will REMOVE the tags that enable chapter headings and pictures.

On a personal note, I find that using the QuickTime player is a better experience on your computer, even if you have iTunes.  It's not as demanding on your computer's memory and it opens a lot faster.  By the way, if you have a Mac, QuickTime should've come installed.  Hope this helps.  Spread the word!
