We're experiencing a rather annoying problem with a dvd we are adding to
our collection. The dvd is/ /Rudyard Kipling's/ Kim/ (1950, d. Victor
Saville) with Errol Flynn, and the problem is that the movie stops at
the end of chapter 16 (57:05). It doesn't skip; it just stops. We have
to hit the next chapter button on the dvd remote to advance the film
(the play button doesn't do the trick). We're on our second copy and
are noticing the same problem. Trying to decide if we want to send it
back or just attach a note to the case. Does anyone else have this dvd
in their collection? If so, have you experienced the same problem? If
it's a bad 'batch' we may try to get a copy from another company. But
if others notice the same, we'll just go the route of the explanatory
note...

Happy Friday,

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
