Some issue with the encoding software CNET is using and 2.0 iPhone OS I guess.
No other podcasts have this issue for me but every CNET one does.
Is anyone having playback issues with CNET video podcasts on their iPhone or iPod Touch with the 2.0 update? I have the Touch which I updated to 2.0 on July 12.
Ever since the update, if I stop a CNET video podcast and then go back to it later, the audio and video don't sync up right. When I mean stop, it's not just touching stop then starting back up immediately. I mean stop, then going back to menu or home screen, then going back to the video and trying to take up where I left off. The video starts playing where I left off but the audio starts from some point earlier. I don't have any problems if I play through without stopping. The first time I noticed it was for the 2 hour CNET Live and I've seen it on subsequent CNET Lives, Buzz Report, Today in Technology History, CarTech and BOL Video. It appears that the videos that were done at/after the 2.0 update are affected. I don't have any issues with the ones done before then nor do I have any issues with non-CNET podcasts (Tekzilla, popSiren, Happy Slip). Everything plays on 5th gen iPod just fine. I haven't had a chance to see if Loaded or other video shorts not mentioned do this too.
I'm just putting this out there to see if anyone else has this issue. Someone in the mp3 players forum did, but I haven't heard of anyone else. I don't even know if iPhone users are affected.
