Do Your Videos Play on Mac or iPad
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

Q: I have a Mac. Will your video lessons play on it?

A: We don't OFFICIALLY support any Apple products, however many people have been able to successfully watch our videos on their Macs or iPads. Right now, our SOFTWARE is designed to run on the PC only, but we do have lessons available that you can watch online in your web browser. If you're studying Photoshop or Excel, for example, you can still benefit from our lessons on a Mac as the Mac versions of these programs are very similar.

You can try our Amicron Theater and see if those courses work for you. You might need to install Windows Media Player or Flip4Mac video players which can be found on Microsoft's Web Site.

We are currently in the process of putting all of our courses on our Web site with FLASH video so that users of ANY platform (PC, Mac, etc.) can watch them in their Web browsers online. Whether you're a PC or a Mac user, you could watch - for example - our Excel or Photoshop courses right on the Web site. We expect to have this feature available soon.

We don't currently have any actual Mac training courses available (how to use the Mac, for example), but we have some Mac courses scheduled for future development. I'll post here as soon as we have some Mac training available.

UPDATE: Here's a WalkThru Tutorial on how to get our videos to play on your iPad.

UPDATE: Here's a discussion thread in my FORUMS where several people have mentioned solutions or other software they have used to watch my videos on a Mac or iPad.

UPDATE: Here's another discussion in the FORUMS on playing my courses on an iPad/Mac with a SOLUTION.

UPDATE 5/24/12: Here's a YouTube Video that one of our users (Alex) made showing how to watch 599CD videos on your iPad.
