Due to a recording error, portions of the audio track are missing. Because of this, the audio will skip around in various places. This is actually happening, and you aren't crazy (well maybe, but not because of the audio). Considering these files were almost not recovered, it's a miracle we have this much of the recording.

Yeah that is a complete mess, it makes no sense at all.

November 9, 2013 | 02:48 AM - Posted by ea1985 (not verified)

Its one that will go down in infamy.

I blame Josh.

November 7, 2013 | 06:08 PM - Posted by S@m (not verified)

And I was here thinking there was a problem with the podcast download from iTunes (re-running the JoshTech episode)...

November 7, 2013 | 06:34 PM - Posted by MAXLD (not verified)

That type of error would never happen on the old "JoshTech" show...!
Lol, I see Ryan is still having fun with "joshtekk.com" address. XD Straight to bookmarks, check again tomorrow for "Ryan's antic of the day".

I'm listening to the youtube version and It's skipping past huge portions of the podcast, did you guys do extra editing or something? It seems to be randomly hitting 2x playback on the audio

the audio is a bit choppy. but at least there is a podcast! :)

November 7, 2013 | 07:52 PM - Posted by Goofus Maximus (not verified)

Ugh. I gave up at "reference cooler". The Internet Ate My Audio....

November 7, 2013 | 07:54 PM - Posted by Goofus Maximus (not verified)

Oh, and I loved that informative "joshtekk.com" site! That Wyoming Bourbon must be really good stuff...

So all that money from indigogo has gone to waste? learn to do a proper video podcast. Also Ryan needs to be there on every show instead of round the world holidays.

Out of the 200 or so PcPer live events and podcasts, this was one of the first with a major technical mishap to occur. If you were unable to watch the live stream, then you missed the attempts of the Pcper crew and the chat room to recover the broken mp4 that resulted from the recording rig seizing up. As for the Indiegogo, it takes time to sort out the logistics of implementing new hardware into an already established set up.

November 8, 2013 | 03:48 AM - Posted by Prodeous

Well said.

I supported PCPer via Indiegogo, and I do not feel I wasted my money.

And as you said, out of the 250+ episodes I've seen/heard, this is the only one that comes to mind that .. well is not the greatest.. (but somehow funny to listen). But the live stream from what I understood worked, too bad I missed it :(

@ PCPer, good luck in fixing the issue.

This is so unfair! Like who never had technical difficulties? I mean seriously... this things happens! They were able to get sth out even if it's not the best quality, so I say fair play.
And for round the world on holidays, I bet my shirt he'd like to avoid some of the travel! It's call doing journalism

I ended up with last weekd audio podcast again when downloading from itunes.

November 7, 2013 | 10:34 PM - Posted by biohazard918

Since this seems to be complain about the pod cast week I ask that Josh drop the stupid accent he isn't fooling any one with as often as his native swedish comes through.

November 7, 2013 | 11:56 PM - Posted by snook

crap, the fast forwarding and no video.
I've lost an episode to the "damn it" pile.
next week then :)

November 8, 2013 | 09:24 AM - Posted by cmb4747

The audio had issues this episode. I am losing every fifth word. I tries redownloading but the same problem occurred. About 2 minutes in I start losing every 4th word. It is unlistenable,

November 8, 2013 | 10:10 AM - Posted by hosko

If you stream it live on YouTube does it not record it for playback later? Seems like a good backup plan if there is recording issues.

Was a shame I'm in the market for a new graphic card so was really looking forward to hearing this ep of the podcast.

November 8, 2013 | 10:32 AM - Posted by Shudda watched live, but went to bed.... (not verified)

Maybe ken needs to camcorder the live stream. At last it would be a legitimate cam ppl could download....., when the brown stuff hits the rotating thing.

November 8, 2013 | 11:08 AM - Posted by YTech

*sob sob* Audio wasn't the best either... :'(
We have to wait until next week to have a re-cap of this one?

I think everyone deserves to see the hardware being punished** for this! (No Josh; but if you must...)

Probably a "Do Not Try This At Home" demonstration should be shown as well, umm... Okay Josh, you can host this one too. :P

Ohh... what about those funny MSI commercials? When are those going to be released on the podcast? What about fan-based commercials?

** Will leave to your own imagination

780Ti won !

November 9, 2013 | 03:07 AM - Posted by ea1985 (not verified)

What did it win? The extra money in your pocket? Or the last bit of sense in your juvenile mind?

November 8, 2013 | 03:43 PM - Posted by onion uk (not verified)

lol, that was funny with the corrupted audio bits.
and yes i did feel pleasure looking at the picture of josh!!

Complete waste of bytes and electrons to download.. why did PCPER think anyone would want to "attempt" to listen to that jumbled, incoherent mess! Luckily Ryan usually repeats the EXACT same thing on TWICH as he says on the PCPER podcast.. just without Joshtekk's 4th grade humor.

Here is a thought.. stop having the podcast on Wednesdays!! EVERYTHING seems to have their embargo lifted Thursday 12AM, right after the podcast is over. Ryan seems to be on TWICH more than his own podcast so have it on Thursdays before/after TWICH or Fridays so we don't have to wait a week to hear you all talk about the new product that just got released right after the podcast ended!!

much hate. so disappoint. wow. just leave. no fun. such anger

November 8, 2013 | 07:19 PM - Posted by brisa117

I used to listen to the audio version and I completely forgot about the intro music! NOSTALGIA!

November 9, 2013 | 03:02 AM - Posted by ea1985 (not verified)

Yea, that track is killer - especially the ending when they make the guitar cry.

What is the name of it?

November 9, 2013 | 05:53 AM - Posted by PapaDragon

Glad you guys were able to retrieve as much as you could. I tried everything I could ,but it was impossible. Tried Video Repair Tool, but I didn't have a reference file to scan.

Anyhow, glad I watched it live, one of the best episodes! Its better to have happened now and prepare for the future by adding a back-up recording solution.

See ya guys on the next live event!
