Hello all,

I too would like to congratulate you on your considerable effort in putting together this valuable resource.
The appearance of the website looks very modern and a nice colour scheme and works well.
Top marks to all.

Alejandro and Enzo, this is absolutely amazing work!  The "forum" tutorials you produced up to this point have been the most complete reference that has been made available, so it comes as no surprise that you have taken it to yet a higher level.  This reference site should help just about anyone become familiar with basic and advanced operations within PI.

I'd go so far to say it should be referenced in all the built-in PI documentation that isn't completed yet.  Even if it's just hyperlinks to the external site.

Thank you both for your generosity to the PI community.  You should have good karma flowing your way for some time to come.

Yes a fantastic resource, thank you.

I can watch the videos at home fine, but at work on an XP machine using the latest FireFox browser, I can't see any of the videos, I just get an error message "No video with supported format and MIME type found".

Have you any idea what I need to do to get this working.

Mike

Hi Mike, we have added an additional video format for the all serie. Now each one has associated two video files. It should works in Firefox running under XP.
 
Hope you can now see all.

Saludos, Alejandro.

Really great stuff Alejandro.  Should go a long way towards combating the "steep learning curve" myth.
