I'm having trouble looking at the older lessons on the site. The newer flash-based ones are fine but the way the Media Player files are linked, I'm not able to view them in-line with the web page on my Mac. The problem is the same with Safari and Firefox...it treats it as a bad plugin and doesn't show the videos.

So, what I have to do is view source and link directly to the wmv file and view it that way.

I'm not up to the point where I'm able to complete those lessons anyway but is there a plan to either convert these to the new format or at least to something like the How to use a metronome lesson?

Actually, yes. Media Player 9.

I can watch the videos no problem once I manually download them. It's just not getting the embedded link for some reason.

Works on Windows on Firefox. Was hoping that I wasn't alone with problems with that stuff. Maybe I am. sigh. Back to the drawing board?

Perhaps it's a matter of configuring the setting in the browser - a Windows somputer with wrong plug-in settings won't play some embed files either. Unfortunately I cannot tell you exactly how to do that... sad.gif

I'll work on it. If I figure it out I'll post it here in case someone else has a problem.
