I cannot view any of the videos on this site. Some people are willing to help me if I could tell them what video format you are using. The five or so videos uploaded to YouTube I can view but not the same videos on this site. Even older videos uploaded by Cherry I cannot view any more. A year or so ago I was able to view all videos. Can I download any of your videos so I can play them off line? I may have video player that can handle your new format, but not the version of Firefox I am using.
By the way, you are a great educator.

We have not changed the video format since we began, so I am not sure why you used to be able to see them but cannot now. Have you tried a different browser? The videos are in Flash format (.flv) and you should be able to play them if you are using Firefox. Have you updated your Firefox lately? You can also view all the videos at spanishdict.blip.tv. They also play in Flash there, but you have the option to view them in mpeg 4 (.m4v) and even download them as well. You can also download the video podcast from iTunes where they will be in the mpeg 4 format. I hope this helps!

The message was not private. You could have answered it. I addressed it to Paralee because hers was the only name I know who is involved creating lessons. I presume many other are involved creating the lessons.

Actually, Zoltán, I do pretty much everything for the lesson from writing, filming, green screening, editing, flashcards, to posting. I did not, however, design the wonderful Learn widget. That was all Chris, the wonderful creator of this website. - Paralee, SEP 1, 2009
That's so awesome! I've been in "training" for several years and video production is, hands down, my favorite part. As soon as my Mac and Leopard start playing nice, I'm adding video tutes to my web site. - jaysprout, SEP 1, 2009
Paralee, one day will you tell us the history of Spanishdict.com? - JoyceM, ENE 12, 2011

Yes! Easy 20 points for me! However, anyone I think could have given the same answer as me and gotten the points had they gotten to the question first. Jump in there! - Paralee, SEP 1, 2009

Thank you for your fast reply. Everything you said helps greatly. It is really odd that I can watch Lesson 1.1 on Youtube but not here. Same browser, same operating system. I just have to work on it. If I have progress I will report back.
