Has anyone got this breakdown in full or a clip of what happened before perhaps?

Apparently, there was a video of the breakdown in full, but has been removed since...

An old RealPlayer video exists somewhere (maybe the PP?), it was hilarious and commented lots on here at the time.

I see, is there a link somewhere? (via Wayback machine maybe?)

It's on PP but it's an RM file from 2002 which I can't seem to be able to play without some rather unpleasant sounds coming from VLC.

Yes it’s one of those ones you have to download actual RealPlayer to see, but the frame rate is about 2 per second so it’s not of much use IMO.

Hmm that's weird, the RM files that i've played seemed to have worked just fine on VLC, maybe that's just me I suppose.

From memory the only two visuals are the dancer ident and the breakdown slide, so with hi-res copies of both it could easily be "remastered" using the RealPlayer audio.

And what about those "unpleasant sounds" Larry mentioned? What you suggest would be fine if the problem was just corrupted or low resolution visuals, but it sounds like the audio needs repairing too.

I've downloaded Realplayer since and the video plays fine, as fine as a video plays at 2 frames a second. If I get a chance and I can find a copy of the Music Video ident that's long enough, I'll try and grant BillyH's wish.
