SCOtutor Application Support

I'm not on Lion - How can I watch the tutorials?
Not on Lion? The SCOtutor apps have been developed to run on Lion only.

However, we've had lots of requests from people who have not yet decided to upgrade to Lion, but would like to view the tutorial to
help them decide if they need to upgrade.

Consequently, we've made a special downloadable version of the full SCOtutor for Lion video tutorial for purchase, and the video will work on any Mac or even PC!.

So now you can view the video and decide if the extra features of Lion are for you, before you upgrade!

For full information, head over to Video Only version for all Macs and PCs

You can also purchase versions of all the tutorials to run on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Just click on this link for more information and links to the iTunes App Store.
What is ScreenCastsOnline?
ScreenCastsOnline is acknowledged as a premier source of Mac and iOS video tutorials, with a huge library of over 300+ video tutorials available for immediate download. A brand new video tutorial is published every week, covering the latest and greatest Mac and iOS applications, allowing you to keep up to date with the latest developments, and make the most out of your Mac, iPad or iPhone.

The video tutorials are in the form of "screencasts" which are basically videos of screen captures demonstrating a particular application or service, with a spoken commentary explaining what is happening on screen. It's a really easy way to learn all about new applications and how to get the most out of your Mac or iOS device.

ScreenCastsOnline is unique in that it is one of the very few non-US centric mac based podcasts! It's hosted by myself (Don McAllister) out of the UK and I also do all the show and website production. The show has been running since August 2005 and to date has produced over 300+ screencasts.

The service is membership supported and whilst some content is free, the bulk of the tutorials are only available to ScreenCastsOnline members. - you can find more information about the membership here!

Can I switch off the subtitles?
Yes, the selection of the subtitles is under your control. Just click on the Subtitles icon or press "S" to set the subtitles to "None" or to select a specific language.

Just click on the speed control icon in the Player Control bar. You can slow down or speed up the playback. If playing at a slower speed, you might want to lower the sound using the Volume Slider in the Playback Control Bar.
