The following files are in Adobe Flash Format. You must have the Adobe Flash player installed. If you do not have it then download from here. [Adobe Flash is going away, so at some point you will need to use the podcast version. In Windows VLC seems to play the file the best.] The file is streamed to your computer. I have only read the first chapter in "How to Make Movies for Dummies" so the quality of the video is
not commercial grade. But I believe that you can easily understand what is going on. If you have any suggestions or problems please fill out the feedback form or email me.Thank you.
Important: A slow connection will not work adequately. This could include many wireless setups. The only industry standard that most wireless routers
seem to follow is to over-state their speed and range. So if you have a wireless router, even if hooked to a high speed line it may still not provide
sufficient throughput, particularly if you have a poor connection. If you have a poor or slow connection you may need to go to library media center and
watch it there. (The desk has earphones if you need them.) The videos were tested using the lastest version of IE, Edge, Firefox, Chrome and Opera on a
Windows machine and with Firefox on a Mac. ( In the Reserve Book Room Firefox was a lot more responsive than IE. )
Alternative: If you have a slow connection you could download the Podcast version and use Apple QuickTime (free) or VideoLan (VLC) (free) to watch it. The videos look much better with one of these players. Of course the download of the file will take a while, but once it is on your computer it should play perfectly.
Again you could go to the computer lab and download there if you wish and transfer them to your computer at home. Do not try to download the files below they are designed to play in your browser using Flash, go to the Podcast link above instead.
You can stop and start the videos at will.
