Chapter Markers for the Catalog Management Videos Series, for iPad and Downloads …

Photographs © George A. Jardine

These chapter markers are found in the iPad downloads for this series. After purchase, the download links are available by simply mailing a request to me at georgej@gmail.com. Once you’ve downloaded the video files, you can sync them to your iPad. If you need instructions on syncing to an iPad, see this link. You will find that you can use the chapter markers on the iPad, in iTunes, or in the Quicktime Movie Player application.

If you’re using iTunes or an iPad, you’ll also find that you can beam the videos directly to your AppleTV using Airplay, which—in my book—is by far the best way to watch them. :-)

You can also use these timecodes as a way to jump to the spot you want to watch in the online Flash UI, but please be patient. It takes a moment for the server to catch up each time you click, even on a very fast connection. If you have an HTML5-compatible browser, you may have better luck hitting various time markers with the HTML5 video interface, because it’s a bit more responsive. You’ll find the link to the HTML5 series on your purchase confirmation page.

George – still waiting on the DVD for the Catalog Mgmt video series. I need offline capability. Do you have a date when it will be available?

George October 15, 2012 at 9:54 AM

Hi Dave,

We’ll have DVD’s in about a week. Just let me know if you would like to be notified of their availability.

Having said that, you do know that you can simply request the download links for the online version, and I will gladly send them to you. Right? :-)

Either way. The files are the same.

Best,
George
