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.

I have a Samsung recording app but now it wont let me play any saved recordings I shared them with my google drive still not working internal error occured try again later.what does this mean??


If it was an AVI file type then Windows Media Player has trouble playing these AVI files suggest trying to convert file to a Windows Media file format. Or an Meg2 file format. Google Video File Converter Software . Otherwise try a different Media player like VLC

    • 1 All of the methods described here work best on wi-fi, but can work on 3G network if your computer is available directly through the internet. Ezshare (http://www.antecea.com/) is an app that allows you to mount remote CIFS/SMB, Webdav, NFS and FTP drives. You can then browse/open or copy video files (or any files) directly from your computer through your iPhone. The nice thing about this method is that there is no new software needed on your computer if it already supports one of these protocols. It is the only method that works natively on Linux. The major downside to this method is that you need to have you video files in the native apple (mp4) format.
    • 2 Orblive (http://www.orb.com/en/orblive) is an iPhone app that requires the orb video streaming server be installed. This server then streams your media through the Orblive app. The app work pretty well and is supposed to stream live TV if you have a compatible TV tuner card on your computer. Again, the files need to be in apples native (mp4) format. The Orb server is only available on Windows and the Mac.
    • 3 Air video (http://avatron.com/apps/) is an app that also requires a video streaming server to be installed. It is very similar to the orb server except that this server can convert the video files to play on your iPhone in batch or on the fly. On the fly conversion is great for short videos, but batch conversion works best for large videos. Like the Orb server, the Air video server is only available on Windows and the Mac.
    • 4 Tversity (http://tversity.com/) is a video streaming server only application that can stream video and music to various devices. The movies play on your web browser. It supports the iPhone through the its browser interface. The application can convert the files into suitable iPhone formats, but this can take a while. Unfortunately, Tversity is only available for the windows platform.
    • 5 Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/) is a service that stores your files (you get up to 2GB for free) which can be accessed by various devices including your iPhone. To stream movies/music, just upload them to your dropbox and then you can watch and listen to them on your iPhone. Obviously, you have to go through the process of uploading the files as well as making sure they are acceptable iPhone formats. Dropbox is available for Mac, Linux and Windows computers.
    • 6 Finally, an honorable mention should go to the Slingbox iPhone application (http://slingmedia.com/go/iphone). It allows you to view all your media through the Slkingbox video streaming server. However, you need to have a buy a Slingbox appliance.

USB firmware upgrade for bd-p1500


Do you use a Mac? I had this same trouble. I use a Apple computer, Mac OS X. The USB flash card I was using had been formatted for the MAC OS. I just used the disk utility to reformat the flash card for MS DOS. Then it worked ok.

Watching videos on a computer


Yes. DVDs are easy as you probably already know, you just need a DVD capable drive and appropreate software to play. VHS tapes are another matter altogether. You'll have to purchase something that will convert the analog signal from the VHS player to a digital signal your PC can use. I have a device I use to convert VHS tapes to DVD (ADS technologies) I could use to watch tapes but the software leaves a lot to be desred.
