  7. Hi Joy.

    You need to have quicktime installed.

    You can go to the apple website to download it for free.

    Thanks for watching.

  8. Great show girls! By the way…I have absolutly No problem being called a FREAK! :)
    Can’t wait until the next show!

  9. As you move through productions, I hope you’ll consider differentiating your advice tailored to disclosed surgery types. We who have had the good fortune and foresight to have the Duodenal Switch eat and drink normally with our meals. Nonsense like having to chew your food forever, eating pencil eraser sized bites and living in fear of the medieval side effects like dumping and food stuffs getting stuck just don’t apply DS’rs, not to mention NOT having to diet for life and living in fear of serious regain.

    Looks like a fun project to be a part of and it will be interesting to see how it all develops. Good luck and thanks for sharing.

  10. Rockne…thanks for the great feedback and we will definatley take what you said into consideration.

    Since I didn’t have a DS and neither did Lynnda, we tend to lean towards the RYN side of things. You comment is a great reminder that there are so many types of WLS and we want to try to make this podcast as surgery “agnositic” as we can.

    We are thinking about a show on “misconceptions” of WLS. I would love to hear from you about some DS misconceptions. I think anyone who has had surgery has certain misconceptions about other types of surgeries and would love to get feedback.

    Sincerely,

    Toni

  11. I loved the first episode and look forward to future episodes. How often (when) will the next episodes be coming out?

  12. Hey Joyce,

    We’re producing one show a week that will be uploaded each Friday. But keep in mind that you can keep your BTV fix going throughout the week by participating in the discussion in the forums. We’re always looking for new show ideas so if you have one please post it there.

  14. What plug in do I need to watch this? I use the latest version of MSIE, but am unable to view, due to “unknown” file type.

    HELP!

  15. Hi Kathi

    You need to have quicktime installed.

    You can go to the apple website to download it for free.

    Thanks for watching.

  16. I just found your site and want to say how impressed I am with it… Not only are you very entertaining but very informative. I found myself sitting here shacking my head in Oh yes I know just what she is talking about. I plan on letting my friend know about your site.. Thank you.
    Star

  17. Yeah for Star! Thanks for watching AND passing us along to your friend!

  18. I am so upset I have tried and tried to get these to play. I have downloaded quicktime and still cant get them. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

  19. Hi Heather – What is happening when you try to watch them?

  20. It just goes to the quicktime logo and then does nothing

  21. It isn’t you.. It is happening to me right now too.. Wasn’t doing this yesterday but is today. So.. whenever the issue is resolved – you should be able to watch the videos just fine.

  22. Heather,

    I’m working with our hosting provider right now to resolve it. For some reason it is only effecting Internet Explorer and Fire Fox users. On the Safari side the videos are loading even faster than before?? I’ll post in the form as soon as I have it resolved.

    Mike

  23. Okay kids… problem is resolved!!!

    I hate it when we break the interweb!!

  24. Connie Sue says:

    Rock on sista freaks!! LOVE the site, love the show! YOU ROCK!

  25. doesn’t play

  26. Hey Soxfan,

    Let me see if I can help ya out here. First off what type of a connection do you have? Are you DSL, Cable or dial up? If your on a dial up it will take some time for the file to load.

    Second – Of the two files above did you try both of them? The one on top is a flash based file and you will need at a minimum flash player Ver. 9 to view the hight resolution file. You can get the Flash player here…

    http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    The file on the bottom is in a QuickTime format and you will need QuickTime player installed to watch it. You can get that here…

    http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

    We are in the process of moving away from QuickTime and so I would recommend the Flash player route.

    If you’re still having issues after this feel free to email me directly at mike (at) batiatrictv (dot) com and I’ll see what we can do to get you up and running.

    Mike

  27. Um… Just as an FYI.. that is mike(at)bariatrictv(dot)com..

  28. Awe jesh!! I did it agin. I just have this mental block when spelling BARIATRIC! Thanks for catching another on Lynnda :-)

    Mike

  29. I just came across your site! Love it!

  30. Hi Kayisha – welcome to BTV .. if you get a chance – check out our forums to get to know everyone.. :-)

  31. I really liked this post. Can I copy it to my site? Thank you in advance.
