Guitar for beginners on ipad
Posted 24 July 2011 - 12:43 AM
Unfortunately this web site uses flash videos. Now, we users get caugt up in Steve Jobs and Aples petty fights with Adobe. The end result is that I can not watch my favorite guitar lessons on the iPad!
Does anybody know of a way to get round this to follow the lessons on my iPad?

Just remembering the way technology has marched through our lives. Remember the choice we had between VHS and beta? VHS won of course, not saying it was the best technology, but it won public support on the day. Now I suppose it's purely academic because no-one uses it anyway. And then there was the battle between Compact Cassette and 8track. Again, even though Compact Cassette won, it's now immaterial because the young folk these days wouldn't know what a cassette tape was or have a device to load it into.
So we now have another battle between the giants, Apple in the left corner and Microsoft in the right. The only losers are going to be the users ... I wonder how long this battle will last.
Edit. You may quote me .. . I am a computer consultant ... I hate technology!

Anyway, I found one possible solution, the Puffin Browser for the iPad. It is not ideal, as the video and audio is totally out of sync, which for something like tutorial videos is a pretty important aspect.

Why not just purchase you favorite lessons and convert them to a usable format for the pad ?

We are currently looking into converting the main site and videos lessons into a format that will work on all smartphones and tablets.
The forum should already be smartphone compatible and of course tablet (ipad) compatible. We will be upgrading soon so that you will be able to receive push notifications as well.

I can of course get to GFB&B however on the Ipad I cannot view the lesson. It mentions the flash player upgrade required. In some cases it shows the text but no movie, in other cases it shows the oi
picture but no play, in many cases it shows all the text and tabs.
I will check it for time to time. i think I will load a purchased lesson and see what it does.

I know you won't be able to see the flash video lessons. I was referring to the forum itself. Just posting and viewing the forum. The lessons are all in flash at the moment. We'll make a big announcement when it's in the appropriate format for other devices. It's not a simple process. It's quite time consuming to switch it all over.

Viewing the forum is no problem, it works great for that. I want to see now how it treats flv and mp4 files.

conversion I wanted, in this case an (mp4). Stuck it into my IPad and worked perfect.
