It's taking forever to download for me...1-2% per minute.

LoKe, one of us has been imbimbing tonight because I couldn't make much sense out of your above post.

First full episode of Basic Up came out yesterday:

 Keep your eyes on the Army podcasts ;).
Darn, it doesn't work for me.

Ah, probably my mistake.  I leave for Basic on the 8th and I've already completed most of the process detailed in the video.  I was hoping for another inside look at what's to come. ;)

You could always go over the little previews they've got :D If you're that interesting... but I guess you've already watched them?

can you tell me how you magically was able to get it to work...it is still being a lame download for me, and I have tried everything that I could think of, which isn't much, but normally it works...

  Sorry Deej,

   I didn't do anything specific, just kept trying "Download Podcast" and eventually it turned up in my iTunes downloading. Good luck :)

It finally worked! ...randomly... the thing that helped me is leaving it alone...for a long long time...and then, when I was listening to music, I heard the cheesy intro music!  I was angry and happy all at the same time...

I downloaded right off the Army site and it took about nine minutes (I was timing it)... I'm not sure why it's taking everyone so long.  I just saved it on my desktop.

ya, well, my computer is known for not downloading anything to do with CF clips or the actual site for that matter sometimes.  I consider it to be very old and moody...

The file is 148MB so however long it takes your computer to download/save that is how long it's going to take before you can watch it.  Use the previous suggestion of right clicking and selecting "Save target as".  Then you can just leave it to download and watch it whenever.

The video on youtube is the summary of the series.  The link previously given on the first page is the actual first episode...

It's the CF's way of leaving their options open  ;)

After several attempts, I finally was able to download and watch the first episode. When will the next one be available?  8)

If there are no complaints, I could probably upload a torrent of the file so people who are having trouble could download it.

I don't think it will be a mather of complaint rather then legality.

Would it be legal? Do you know ?

Well, torrents have very legal filesharing uses.  As this video is free to view and is linked directly, no revenue would be lost by the party responsible for its distribution.  If the thread creator and the mods give the go ahead, I'd be more than willing to make this video more available.
