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.

File sharing is legal in Canada, that of course depends on the file... If its publicly accessible, as in, on a website, where you can freely download it, I don't think It matters.

 Torrenting is as legal as the transfer of data by any "conventional" means. In fact, many companies make use of torrenting, as it does take the strain and resource usage from them and places it to the users.

 However, I recommend the following link for downloading:

As to the legality of sharing the file, I'm no lawyer....

But since it was made with public funds (or DND funds) it seems to me that it's public domain.  Canadian Taxpayers paid for it they're allowed to see it. 

Since they're releasing it on the web it's already cleared for public consumption so it's not classified or anything.

I see no issue.

I had a bit of a wait to download it but it worked fine for me.  Can't wait to see more!

:( It was working a minute ago. But now it doesn't wanna load when i wanna re-download it. 
Damn me for clicking open instead of save.  Now I can only listen to it because it wants to use winamp.

 I suggest RealPlayer for all your video viewing needs. It is truly great at it, and it's full screen capabilities are fantastic. Plus, when you're lucky, you find vids in the RM and RMVB formats, which are like 20-80mb per 30 mins of great quality video. It's really great on a laptop... Movie viewing is way better when it's perfectly on a full screen.

 Oh, and for all those people with issues downloading, try again in 15-30 mins. You should be able to download it again.

 On the other side, the http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/lf/English/podcast/basicup_002.mp4 link does work, and quite well. The only issue is that I couldn't find Episode 2 on the
website at all... So, I guess I'll check the url of http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/lf/English/podcast/basicup_003.mp4 all next week ;).

 Thanks for digging up Episode 2 for us  ;).

Mike, do you have RealPlayer? As bms suggested above, it's a good player to use for this kind of thing. It's a free download at www.realplayer.com.

I'm more of a Windows Media Player person myself. But I will try RealPlayer once I have dinner finished ;)

What's with the giant "Hoo-ah!" at the 'commercial' break?
I thought we (CF) didn't do that. Like at a mini brief held by a warrant during Bison Warrior '07 the warrant said "everyone understand?" and the two Americans who were staying with us in the barracks, let out a "Hoo-ah!" and everyone just stared at them till they went away. Good friends to have though ;) Both were cooks, I got twice as much food then normal ;D

I'm pretty sure it has to do with internet connection. In Mississauga I have a slower connection and it doesn't load, well I won't wait more than 5 minutes for it.

Here in Hamilton I have a much better connection and it's there in seconds.

You aren't the only one. With my Med file in limbo it seems, I've become very anxious waiting for my call of approval or declination.

Episode 3 has not been released yet as of 12:56PM today.  This is assuming it is to be posted at the same location, and using the same naming conventions.  If it is, its address will be: http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/LF/English/podcast/basicup_003.mp4.

Does anyone know what the release schedule is?
