Thanks for the excellent feedback! I'll try and address each point.
1. This a good point and reminder. Obviously copyright issues didn't even cross my mind with my desktop. I should be more mindful of what appears in my videos. Any suggestions of how I might give credit after the fact?
2. I see your point here! This ties into the next point...
3. In the showcase what you see is mostly what there is. With exception to that I forgot to visit the swamp biome and the nether. Also I neglected switching between every weapon material. I didn't even show what the iron blade sounds like. Its cool! I think I kind of rushed this production!
Matmos seems to be somewhat limited in that there are only a handful of sounds. Not to say it doesn't add great sounds to the game. Don't get me wrong..I'm not complaining at all! It's just that it seems that you get the strong wind everywhere on the map after a certain elevation. To the point where it's almost too much of one thing! For me, I think it is a lot better than the game without the mod. But there is room for improvment! There is the pieceful birds chirping when you are at a low elevation. When you get higher the wind blows hard. So everywhere when I am at higher elevations it's windy. It's not so much because I am flying. I think it depends more on height. Then when player is by the ocean, you hear seagulls and waves. Which is really cool!
With the caves, no custom sounds happend from the mod. It was quiet. And I didn't want to spend valuable video time exploring features where the mod had no effect. Plus the cave scene was a 'teaser'! However, I hear what you're saying about wondering what happens. Maybe I should put an annotation at the spot in the video saying that there were no sounds. I have noticed though that sometimes underground there is a really cool 'water drip' sounds that happen seemingly at random ever so often.
I have found an addon mod to the matmos mod that, from the looks of the video, seems to be better than matmos. I havn't used it yet but it looks to have a lot more sound effects. Not sure if it's compatible with my setup yet. Looks like it's compatible with 1.6.2 but not sure about 1.6.4 yet.

Thanks again Claudia for your feedback! I've been getting the youtube bug again lately and I like to hear from my viewers of ways I can improve!
