Here is the official "trailer" for MindCandy Volume 1: PC Demos. It was originally presented at the Assembly 2002 party in Helsinki in August, and has been reworked slightly to reflect MindCandy's final content. RealPlayer™/RealOne™ is required to view any RealVideo videos.
All MPEG-4 videos are not DivX, but are instead real ISO/IEC 14496 Simple Profile MPEG-4 videos. To play them, you can use RealPlayer 9 or higher, Quicktime 6 or higher, or a dedicated MPEG-4 player such as Dicas' ISO MPEG-4 player.

If you're having trouble accessing the trailers, a mirror of selected MindCandy content has been provided by Jason Scott. You may know Jason as the curator of and the BBS documentary project, so check them out.

We had more audio commentary than we could use! Mostly it was our own commentary that didn't make it onto the DVD because some groups contributed their own, but there were some extra snippets of contributed commentary that we couldn't use as well. Here are some of them, with more posted in the following weeks:
