Doesn’t Work With the Most Recent iTunes

I was really enjoying this podcast but haven’t been able to watch any of the new ones. They apparently require quicktime which is not compatible with iTunes 12.1.

6 Second Videos

I really like these videos when I can view them! Some of the videos are Quicktime only, which my mac does not have, and the latest videos only run for 6-8seconds! I hope they fix this issue (in which case I will change my rating).
