Video Tutorials

The videos are links to WMV screen video captures. The videos are recorded at 1024x768 resolution and must be played back in that resolution in order to be readable. If you use Windows Media Player to play these videos make sure you set the player to display at 100% or the display will be garbled. If you click the video links, they will start playing right away and stream down to you as you go given adequate connection speed - if your connection is too slow to stream or you'd rather just download, right click on the link and choose Save Target As to downlaod and save the file to disk and play it locally.
