Rundy the Northeast Cowboy

Once again, occasional contributor Rundy is gaining exposure through the quilt of the same name created by Marilyn Belford. This time he shows up on the website of a Syracuse tv station. Their video section currently features a news short on the Quilts=Art=Quilts exhibit at the Shweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, NY, where “Rundy” is currently showing. I don’t know how long the video clip will be available at their website, but if you do get to see it, be patient; it’s the last quilt featured on the segment. Oh, yeah–my tech-savvy children say you have to view it in Internet Explorer because it’s streaming video.

IE View is a plugin for FireFox. It allows you to open a site in IE via the right-click menu. I suppose for just such reasons as this.

I wouldn’t say “all” streaming video can only be viewed through IE. In this case the website was using ActiveX . . . which, of course is one of those terribly insecure things which Microsoft invented, and which Microsoft is always getting into trouble for with viruses and such. I wouldn’t be surprised if nobody at Firefox wants to support ActiveX for that very security issue.

Bill, all’s I know is it worked for us in IE and not in Firefox. Maybe if we had found a plugin for Firefox we could have seen it in Firefox. Is that what IEview is?

The northeast cowboy! Rundy is famous.

I had no idea that streaming video could only be viewed in IE.

I downloaded an IEview extension for my browzer so that I could watch it.

Laurie, maybe the colors aren’t showing up well in your browser, but the words “a news short on the Quilts=Art=Quilts exhibit” is the link to the video clip. If you click on those words it should bring it up. I just tried it myself in case I had screwed it up with a typo or something and it brought me to the TV station and started to load the video. Just in case it still doesn’t work for you, this is the link behind those words:
