Media from the GITA Ibogaine Conference 2012 on
10/1/12 through 10/7/12

IMPORTANT: Please use the links to other hosts if at all possible.
These video files are large and are hosted on a home server which will be crippled during the hours needed to download these. The audio files are reasonably small though.

To download a video file from You Tube, follow the link to the video and, after it loads fully into your flash player, copy the FLV video file from your /tmp directory. You may have to rename the file to give it a .flv extension, and you may have to run a very old browser to make this happen, as more current ones load the file directly into memory.

Unfortunately, some of these recordings are incomplete and not all of the presentations recorded were made available for download.
