Okay, those of you who have struggled getting the complete QUEST Documentary onto your desktops -- here is the full program in twenty downloadable parts (m4v files) newly posted on RAPIDSHARE.
This will give you the entire 2 hour and 22 minute documentary, uncut, unedited and with the missing chapters that YouTube refused to carry.
I have tested this on my own system and found that the free and versatile VLC Media Player, once you load the twenty parts onto the Playlist, plays it with great picture and sound quality.
And since it is an m4v file, it will be small enough to store on a DVD.
Now, I am on a Mac, so if you're not, your process maybe slightly different for viewing or burning the Quest Documentary - but these are Quicktime files so I believe they are crossplatform.
I have said this before, but I will say it again. I am not the author of this documentary. I saw it once, and being a die-hard Quest fan since my childhood, asked the creators if I might post it on YouTube.
Since the documentary was not produced for profit, or ever licensed or marketed (it was created for a one time screening at private function) the authors allowed me to break it into parts and post it on YouTube.
The response was so great, from around the world, asking for the full version, that I decided to start this blog and tried posting the entire doc a year ago here. But there were so many parts, and my splitting and posting skills so limited, that it seemed to cause more frustration than
anything else, with those trying to download the parts, assemble them, and get a copy of the whole show.
Maybe this problem is solved now with these new files.
I hope so. Here is the show again in only 20 parts this time -- and anyone who is more computer savvy than I, and more familiar with brands other than Apple -- maybe can help out with suggestions, if there are
problems again with IBM users.
I have also acquired a couple of deleted scenes that were not included in the YouTube posting. An alternate opening for the doc, a little bit more about Mike Road and Race Bannon. They were edited for time, since the doc was approaching two and a half hours.
I will post those, if anyone has asked for them next time I check into this blog. You can contact me at the email in my profile. I don't check in often, but wish I had more time so I could.
I have yet to talk the creators of the doc into posting what sounds like the most hilarious and provocative deleted chapter from the documentary, "Did Jonny Quest Make You Gay?"
I haven't seen it, but it sounds terrific and funny.
Here are the new postings everyone. Enjoy.
