- I want to see the video in MPEG/RealVideo format, but I can't open the file.
You need a viewer. We can suggest a few links to download viewers.
Quicktime - Nagware (PC MAC)
Windows Media Player - Freeware (PC MAC UNIX)
RealPlayer 8 Basic - Nagware (PC MAC UNIX)
Download Instructions - Look for "RealPlayer 8 Basic - is our free player" in the middle of the page, and click on it. Do NOT download Realplayer Plus! That is the commercial version!
- Poor playback
Probably your internet connection is too slow to see the video in streaming mode. You need to save it to your hard disk before seeing it.
- Saving the video to your Hard Disk
On some systems, the browser is automatically configured to play back videos instead of saving them to Hard Disk.
Internet Explorer - Right click on icon and choose "Save target as..."
- Download Problems
The files are very big, and the downloand might take a long time, depending on your connection.
We suggest you use a download manager to get the files from our server. Here's a brief list:
GetRight - Adware (PC)
HotGrabber - Shareware (MAC)
GNOME Transfer Manager - GPL (UNIX)
FormulaWeb - GPL (PC LINUX)
- What do shareware, nagware, etc... mean, anyway?
ADWARE - The program is free to use, but you get banners all the time.
FREEWARE - The program is free to use.
GPL - The program is free to use and you get the source code to modify it.
NAGWARE - The program is free to use, but it bothers you all the time with "incentives" to upgrade to the non-free version.
SHAREWARE - You can use the program, but if you like it you have to pay (sometimes they stop working after the trial period).
ASTALAVISTA - Search engine to download small freeware programs (cracks) that remove nags and shareware limitations.
