Google Tours with a Lot of Sound Overwhelm Resources!

Some of you might have had a glimpse at the Jimmy Buffet example with sound. The sound comes through loud and clear, but sucks up the resources necessary for Google Earth to do the Flying, at least on my laptop with modest bandwidth. So I've saved the last two posts in draft form so that won't lock up your computers. I'll continue to experiment and keep you posted. It is a neat idea: generate a tour by recording all movements in Google Earth, including your narration. Save this is a *.kmz file using Google Earth. "Serve" that file from your website. Prepare that in such a way that the tour appears in a window in your browser. Neat.

There shouldn't be an issue with regular workstations and robust broadband, by the way. In the meantime, you can have a sense of what you might have heard on the fully enabled Buffet Tour by playing the one still posted here accompanied by his "Margarita ville" as generated from some other sound source!
