questions and their answers of the audio
and video clips featured on this website!
What do I need to make the videos/audio work?
A: The only thing you need is the latest version of RealPlayer.
I have RealPlayer installed, but I can't hear anything or get the videos
A: The videos are encoded using the RealVideo 9 codec and usually
can't be played on earlier versions of RealPlayer. Download the latest
player and you should be fine.
I want to download these little videos! How can I do that?
A: You can download the music videos by right-clicking on the "DL!"
icon next to the title of the video and selecting "save target
as...". My travel videos are not available for download.
Where can I get more of these Japanese music videos?
A: You can buy the DVDs of the music videos from specialty CD shops
or online vendors like YesAsia.com or CDJapan.co.jp. You can also sample
them by downloading off of file-sharing programs like WinMX.
Searching the net, you can find great sites like this
one which offer sample videos for download, but there are not many
stable sites like this.
How do you make these mini-videos?
A: I encode the videos from mpegs with HelixProducer, made by RealNetworks.
I checked your site a few days ago and it has the same audio, but the
music videos are different. Is there someplace I can download the older
A: Unfortunately, I don't have unlimited space on my web server so
I can't keep every video available for download. I change the videos
every so often to keep some variety going. The audio is only changed
once in a great while because there's enough of a variety there already.
If there is a Japanese pop/rock star you think is really good, email
me the name and a few song titles and maybe my site will feature them
