BBC Videos I have just installed Mac OS X Leopard and now I am unable to watch the BBC videos on My Apple OS X eMac. It lets me preview the upcoming shows and I can see the copyright warnings but none of the video itself.

Are you talking about the videos on the BBC new site?  They use wmv format and for that you may need to download a 3rd party utility for the codec. 
Go to versiontracker.com and download Flip4Mac (link:  http://versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/28842  )  and install it.  It allows you to play this format video either in Safari or within Quicktime.  
If you run into a problem, just let me know and I will walk you through it.
Good luck.

My emac will start up and show a ? marm help me


The ? with a folder means it can find a bootable system file / drive.

Do you have a copy of your Operating System install disc still or a copy of Leopard or Snow Leopard around?

You'll need to boot to the cd (hold down the C key when you power on the system)

From there you can access Disk Utility and attempt to repair the drive.

Let me know what you're working with and I'll help you out the best I can.

How to Remove DRM From iTunes rental or purchased videos on Mac OS X


As we all know, iTunes videos are all DRM protected by Apple's Fairplay, which prevent us reusing the content freely, like sharing the iTunes videos on network, editing the iTunes videos with FCP or iMovie, converting iTunes videos to other common formats and watching iTunes videos on many Non-apple devices and so on.

There are so many limitations on the iTunes rented or purchased videos. Why not find a DRM removal software to crack the iTunes DRM and then watch the iTunes videos free?

Here I want to share my experiences for using a DRM Media Converter and removing the drm from all my iTunes videos on my Mac.

Step 1. Download and Install the recommended DRM media converter tool.
iTunes DRM Media Converter for Mac

This DRM Media Converter for Mac tool requires you to install the lastest iTunes and Mac OS 10.8 or later.

Step 2. Add iTunes DRM videos
Click Add button, then you can add the iTunes drm videos from iTunes library directly.

Step 3. Click Start to start removing iTunes DRM
Click Start button, then the DRM media converter for Mac will start to work. It will soon convert the iTunes drm m4v videos to unprotected MP4 format.
MP4 format is the most popular video format currently. It's compatible with almost all mobile devices and can be uploaded to any video sharing websites.

I bought a eMac from the dep of Education and I am unable to get into it because i don't have the username or password


You should format the internal hard disk and install a clean and fresh version of Mac-OS anyways and create a new user-account. If there is no install-disc included, try calling Apple, tell them your eMac's serial number (All eMac's have their serial numbers printed inside the disc drive door), and ask them if they have any replacement install discs for your model of eMac. Check out the Apple eMac support page or the Apple eMac support forum for more informations.

File Sharing between Vista PC and Mac OS X


You're not the only person experiencing this problem. Many PowerPC users who upgraded to QuickTime 7.5 (sometimes even QuickTime 7.3) began to experience widespread stuttering and halting when playing back video. Apparently, these packages contained functionality improvements that simple maxed out the old CPUs.
Unfortunately, there is no generally agreed-upon fix. Since the PowerPC is a dead-end Apple architecture, most people eventually "fix" the problem by upgrading to a current (Intel) model of Macintosh. I wish I had better news for you.

Network a G4 (OS 9) to a eMac (OS X)


OK - first, crossover cables let you network PCs together without a switch or router. I would strongly recommend returning the crossover cable and buying a router so that you can use both computers on the internet at the same time.

Second, the eMac monitor can not directly be used as a monitor for your G4 - it's not built that way. However, you can use Screen Sharing on OS X (if both have Leopard) or Apple Remote Desktop software (if you buy it) to remote control the G4 using the eMac.

You will DEFINITELY need a monitor on the G4 in order to set it up at all, so I hope you have that.

Keep in mind that you can buy, for less than $200, an LCD screen that is larger and better quality than the eMac, and it would leave the eMac useful as a second computer. Since the eMac is unlikely to work at all with Leopard, and you'd have to buy Apple Remote Desktop, you're going to spend less money by buying a separate screen for the G4.

Unable to upgrade to system leopard on my eMac


With software and computers changing constantly-I use older software for older macs. You will continuously run into problems dealing with new software and old computers. See if you can find older versions that still run great rather than the creative suite. Stick with earlier system software as well. Now days 640 for memory is not much because of the increase in software space use. You can also allocate memory to certain software you use most.
