    1. Can you normally watch You Tube videos using those browsers? If you can, simply hover over the link for Video 13 (the only video available so far), right click and select "Copy Link Address" then go and paste it in your browser. Also, try using Google Chrome-a 1000 times better than IE and Firefox.

    Lamentablemente, no se inglès. Cuando viene escrito, yo lo traduzco a travès de Google. Pero el vìdeo no viene traducido, así que no me sirve, pues no entiendo nada de lo que dice Bob. Igualmente, muchas gracias. Saluda atentamente, Graciela.-

    Are the videos only going to be in flash format? If so, I will not subscribe. You need to make the videos so they play on iPads. It just makes sense to be able to have the iPad next to me while I follow along with the tutorials. Using a desktop or laptop would be counter productive.
