Ok, thanks Owen, I have downloaded the file.
I also tried the torrent download at my home, Macbook (1,1) running
and it failed, which may, as you state, indicate a firewall issue.
I don't view video files very much ... this .ogv file does not appear to
be very player
friendly. I have tried the default ubuntu movie player, totem:
"Could not determine type of stream"
"Mismatching header version 53.19.0"
I will try playing on the home system, and a bit more research.
Thanks, for all of your assistance.
