Tutorial videos in non-flash format?
« on: April 17, 2007, 05:50:35 AM »
I wonder if it is possible to obtain video tutorials in other format than SWF? Basically, main problem is that I can't forward/pause videos, thus making it impossible to see specific parts of video. I've tried using Firefox and Adobe Flash player, as well as player recommended on Mach3 support site (above the video download links).

Sorry about that, there in a FLV format to stream the video for a progressive download benefits. With future video's I believe we should use QuickTime or WMV so that there easily downloadable.
Are there no controllers below the video,Play,Stop,pause? They should be right below the video...interesting. Is it these video's here: http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/artsoft/videos.htm ?

The FLV are impossible to convert but I'll post the source FLV's for download along with the player so you can open it up on the desktop with fully functional controls in a bit here. Need to get the location of the files from Benny first.
Actually if this works out we could have an Artsoft tutorial player which could reside locally  ;D otherwise I'll switch formats to Quicktime or WMV or whatever people like most.

Yep, videos are from that location.

I've downloaded 2nd video from the site today, and I could pause/forward it in Flash Player (that is linked on video download page).

Seems like I just got unlucky with 1st video I tried (Coordinates / Homing), and that video is the most interesting for me, at the moment, so I was bit annoyed to have to replay it from start every time. Managed to find some tool that can play it and allow me to forward it (although it 'stops' at around 80% of video for some reason).

Another advantage of WMV (or whateve else, besides Flash ;)) is that people running Linux (I run it on my desktop) can easily watch them as well, while it's bit of trouble when watching SWF files from Firefox (and I couldn't find flash related tools for Linux, that would allow me to play/pause/forward/etc those videos).

Anyway, it's not urgent or important, but would be nice to have, in the future.

And whoever made the "Coordinates / Homing" video - I owe him a beer (or a whole pack, if needed :D)

Here is the best I can do with those FLV for the Flash tutorials till I redo them and have multiple formats avalible.

Download the Flv's and put them in a folder next to the Artsoft FLV player, or if any one can figure out how to get these FLV to any other sharable format let me know or supply them   ;D

Artsoft FLV player  (standalone) only the FLV's you download will be avalible for veiwing:

Otherwise you can veiw the video's from any of my posted:
