Notes on Playing the Video Tutorials

Minimum Screen Resolution - To view these video tutorials, you will need a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768. A "Color Quality" setting of "Highest" is recommended.

In Windows XP, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings and change the screen resolution to 1024 x 768, and then click Apply.

In Windows Vista, go to Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Personalization > Display Settings > Resolution and change the screen resolution to 1024 x 768, and then click Apply.

In OS-X on an Apple computer, Go to the Apple > System Preferences > Hardware > Displays > Resolutions and select 1024 x 768. For "Colors", select "Millions".

If your display is already running at a higher resolution than 1024 x 768, you do not have to change it.

Full Screen - On a PC, press the F11 Function key at the top of your keyboard to put your browser in full screen mode to view the videos. Press F11 again to restore the browser to its previous state.

On a Mac, in your browser under the Window menu, select "Zoom".

Flash - These video tutorials use Macromedia's Shockwave Flash for viewing. Most modern browsers come with Flash built in and they should play without any problems. If you have any problems playing the videos or with the audio try downloading the latest version of the Flash player plug-in.

Sound - To hear the audio explanations that accompany the video tutorials, you need to have a properly configured and functioning sound card in your computer. Make sure the volume control is set to a reasonable level and that the sound is not muted. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and check the sound settings.

Internet Explorer and Active Content - Microsoft's Internet Explorer may display a warning message that looks like this:

You can click on this information bar and select "Allow blocked content" if you want to see the videos or, you can use a browser like Firefox that does not have these kinds of security problems.

The "active content" that Internet Explorer is blocking are tiny snippets of javascript that allow the images to change on mouse-overs, and other javascript that allows the videos to play. This CD-ROM has been thoroughly scanned for viruses and nothing on it presents any threat to your computer. If you trust the author and publisher, please allow this blocked content if you want to view this book in Internet Explorer. If you do not, please return the CD for a full refund.
