A beginners flash video what do u think?

Hi All
Have not been here for over a year (Sorry..Sorry)

I saw Fedora Core 5 and had to have a little tinker with it.

Last time it was Fedora Core 3!

Can you nice gentleman or experts as i am only a beginner have a look at the little video below?

This little video is meant for somebody who has already got Win XP installed and used the free space for Fedora 5.

I know a video for beginners but just think back to the scare you got when u started with LINUX.

Sorry will stop dribbling Click Here

Please let me know where a beginner would tremble and go back to Windoze!

Yes honest feedback would be great
Or of course what i should of added or removed

Thanks all....honest feedback even harsh is always welcome!

Bones56K, the video doesn't play for me. If I move the slider, I can see some text boxes but they're empty.

Probably was made with something higher than Flash 7.

Hi Bones

You asked for honest feedback. I hope you find the following useful.

1) Methodology: You're confusing the lesson at hand by discussing the screen background. Instructional videos should only cover a single subject. Stay on topic.

2) Content: When instructing about GRUB, perhaps also let them increase the default timeout to 15 seconds. in the real newbie world, 5 seconds isn't enough to read all the options.

3) Try to move a little faster. Try not to hold a single shot or sequence for longer than 10 seconds. Attention span begins to drift shortly thereafter. (We are all the results of 3 generations of television.)

4) Overall assessment: Nice work! You're doing a fine job. I'd love to see the entire presentation when you're done!

Dan

Thankyou all

I did lots of reading today and found flash has a few little problems at the moment.

Text as stated in a few posts here will not even be shown in a flash video.

Thanks all i will be back in 2007 about the same time when Fedora my favourite Linux operating system matures a little more.

Yes i was here in 2005 Was Here in 2005
and will be back next year.

Goodluck all

Thanks Bones

Hey All again

TangledWeb has me thinking with his honest feedback to keep going.

Try this:

Open a terminal---su -....root password

mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/

hit enter and then enter the following command also as root:

ln -s /etc/X11/fs/config /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config

hit enter and then log out and back in.

For all those people who can not see text in the pretty little yellow boxes please try this:

Watch the video with no text and try this and let me know here if it works!

Once you have followed the new video please go back to the second(video) below and let me know if you now see text

Click here for maybe a fix!

The first Video click here!

I *knew* I forgot to do something when I setup this box after a monster problem I made with the last install! Thanks to you and Dan for reminding me!

Thanks for that rondonjin

TangledWeb got me motivated as i thought after his post was why are people getting blank yellow boxes where text should be.

Honest feedback good or bad makes people get there act together.

Thanks

Well, I usually follow Stanton Finley's guide for setting up multimedia codecs, etc, and there's a note about it and a link on his page but somehow I missed it this time! Must have been in a hurry to get my box up Now to look at your presentation again, this time with text!
