A thread to record some favorites or new finds in streaming video on the Web.

Suggestion: One post per site, with synopsis. Try to post URLs for sites with collections of vids rather than a single link to a single vid.

You may also wish to list the streaming format and what platform it can run on.

In general, Adobe Flash player will run on Linux, OSX, Windows with Firefox or IE.

Silverlight with DRM will only run on IE/Windows.

All episodes from the first Star Trek series, seasons one, two and three are available here:

They are free to watch, faily good resolution. They have short commerical breaks in what seem to be the original commercial insertion points, although they generally only run one commercial per break.

Paranormal show, sort of X-Files-ish but with a faster, less brooding pace.

The episode I saw crammed a lot of characters and time spans into a short hour but it made a good story (about a killer who impregnated a girl who then gave birth 30 minutes later...).

Streams in Adobe format. I watched on openSUSE/Firefox linux.

Not necessarily what you think...or maybe it is! It's a very tongue in cheek, high irony comedy of short Internet episodes about the travails of a heterosexual guy in the fictitious "Gaye Town" where almost everyone is gay except him. As the tag lines goes "Good for gaye people, bad for me!"

All the episodes can be seen here:

on Crackle, which is a nice clearinghouse for music and original Internet entertainment.
