You MUST contact the Programming Director (at programming@phillycam.org) upon the submission of this file. 

Review the Documents section of the website for the Program Submission Form, Checklist, FAQ section and policies.

IMPORTANT:

- While the m2t is processing, a number of different files are created which PhillyCAM does not need - only deliver the .m2t file!

- View your .m2t file before submission. Make sure the running time is correct and the audio is in sync. Your .m2t program file can be viewed in VLC Media Player which is free to download for MAC and PC at www.videolan.org

- If this is the first episode of your Series, or a one time Special, please submit the necessary signed Program Submission form with your .m2t file in the drop-off bin. 

As always, contact a Technical Services staff member if assistance is needed.
