    Trying to look at Training Videos

    I go to here:

    Hours of Free LightWave Training (24 Hours+)

    and I cannot open any of the training videos, does anyone know why?

    I get this:

    "No video with supported format and MIME type found."

    How do I get around this ??

    Thanks,
    Carol

    Hey Carol!

    Sorry, the link you are referring to isn't in your post.

    This message typically means your browser doesn't have an organic or plugin viewer for that video type. Sometimes it can be if you are trying to view a video delivered by Adobe Flash and your browser is HTML5 only.

    Are you using Firefox as your browser? This can be a common issue with Firefox... try clearing your browser cache and re-loading or using a different browser.

    These are mostly all MOV files, made in a heady era where we believed QuickTime was wonderful.

    Right-click on the link and choose to download. Then watch in a compatible player, such as VLC.

    I still think they are, if played with quicktime (not VLC) you will be able to scroll back and forth much smoother than with VLC, in case you need to study a fraction of the tutorials.
    What format do yo believe is superior today, and with what player?

    I'm not discounting QT player's merits. It is just that it is dead. Apple no longer believes in its wonderfulness...stopped supporting it for Windows (no security reports or updates for at least 3 years). There are many advisories (even from Apple) to remove existing installations from Windows. And on Mac, QT was (is?) one of the best ways to exploit that "secure" OS.

    There are apparently other players that offer backward frame step (https://www.ilovefreesoftware.com/26...ame-frame.html) but I'm content with VLC (hot keys allow stepping back by 3, 10 and 60 seconds). If I ever need individual frame step backwards, I open the video in an editor.
