I don't recall if this has been posted and occasionally the question gets asked if one has viewed it. Since we've had a an influx of new members, this is the perfect opportunity to share the link. You can now view the video in it's entirety.

Is anyone else getting "technical difficulties" - maybe it's a US-only vid.

I'm getting "We're experiencing technical difficulties" Why does every us-centric video site close itself off to them thar foreigners. :/

The tradition shown in this video is part of the reason I own a Kamaka!
Thank you for reposting.

Yeah, whenever the link is posted international viewers are blocked for some reason.

No, looks like Jake just commenting about the video . . . the video is about 26 minutes.

I dunno if this will work, but here's a YT link for the vid Heart Strings (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYjUOOyWsjs&feature=related). I don't how if our European members will be able to view it.

That's the 1 minute trailer. I had to use my work's US account to access the PBS video.

The Kamaka history video looks available only to the developed world. We in the third world need be content to play our rare Kamaka here only. :iwant:
Leaving the joke, someone can provide the video to download?

For those of you in other countries tired of being blocked from websites: Witopia.net.

It's what I use to watch the BBC from the U.S.

Thanks Gadzukes!

You're welcome!

It actually is a great service. It's what a lot of people in China use to get around the "Great Firewall." It's also excellent protection if you're surfing on an open WiFi network at a coffee shop.

Thanks for the link! Those international proxy sites are always a fail.
