Watch 'Super Size Me' for Free

I received an email this morning asking me to check out yet another video sharing shite, iklipz. In part, the email said:
iklipz is a new social media site for filmmakers and videomakers geared towards building bridges between aspiring filmmakers, audiences and the film industry.
After looking at the people involved, Ed Burns is one, and I like him, I saw that you can watch feature length films on there for free.

Check out SUPER SIZE ME, "one man’s journey into the world of weight gain, health problems and fast food. Winner of "Best Director Award, 2004"- Sundance Film Festival." 100 minutes.

I can even embed it right here on my blog.

This is a smart way to embrace the viral nature of the web. I especially like the fact that the movie doesn't have to sit inside a 'walled garden' and it can live right here on my blog. These people understand that each of us have our own 'homes' on the web that we like to invite people over to. Like Lisa Williams says, "it's my livingroom."

A little bit of the way into the movie, it has started pausing and then resuming. I just paused it and then resumed playing. Network issues are probably responsible.

What kind of performance are you getting?

Update II:
I had to reboot my computer. I'd prefer the ability to download the movie so I could watch it without having to be online. Playing a version off my local hard disk would fix the playback issues.
