Hopefully this won't affect the format or the ability to get the direct stream URLs,but there is news the AOL is dropping its horrible embedded players
for the Brightcove players in early 2009.........

There is a demonstration of the players at the Brightcove website and it seems to play much more smoothly than AOL and I was able to get a hidden,downloadable
URL out of it,so hopefully this will be the case for the P&G classic soaps section as well.

The Weather Channel uses the Brightcove(although they call it "Blubox video player")and I was able to get a hidden link out of there as well....
