    These videos are intended for students as well as more experienced programmers.

    Thanks for those tutorials and I do agree, I have learned some good practices in the "Objects & CustomTypes" video

    You could also make ETP the third sticky under this subject section (Teaching programming with B4X), this could have links to both your video listing pages on Vimeo and your subdomain on here, whichever floats your boat @Erel.

    Keep up the great work...

    Hi @Erel,
    today (yes, I'm a bit late on this..eheh) I opened up your ETP page to browse on available lessons. I found that a few videos don't load on my PC, quite surely due to some firewall rule I set in the past. Honestly, my hope is that you can say there are differences in how the videos are published so it could happen that a few don't load easily everywhere.
    Just to give you a reference, on first row I can open first and third video, while the remaining two show a message offering to download them.
    If you need a complete list, just let me know.

    UPDATE: setting directly the failing videos' vimeo URLs in the browser they play regularly.

    I can see only 3 videos on the first row (maybe because of the pc resolution I set?).
    Which video you can not play? "Subs and variables"?

    P.S. Useless question: I can play them all.

    Have you tried to refresh the page with Ctrl + F5?

    I did it now, but same "problem".
    If in my browser I use URL "" it plays nicely the Dynamic Controls video, but if I click on the same video on your ETP Page I get a black window with a waiting circular spinner and the Download message.

    That's because vimeo.com254862941 should in fact read, it's missing a forward slash...

    I can not see the video at the link you posted because... I have disabled the cookies; yours, @udg?

    Thanks, I edited it now.
    To understand why clicking on the ETP page resulted in an wait forever loop, I opened it up in its source form and found
    <div class="vimeography-thumbnail-container">
    <a class="vimeography-thumbnail" href="h ttps://" title="Dynamic Controls" data-video-width="1920" data-video-height="1080"data-download-source=";loc=external&amp;context=Vimeo\Controller\Api\Resources\Channel\VideosController.&amp;download=1&amp;filename=Dynamic+Controlssource.mp4"data-download-sd=";loc=external&amp;context=Vimeo\Controller\Api\Resources\Channel\VideosController.&amp;download=1&amp;filename=Dynamic+Controls164.mp4"data-download-sd=";loc=external&amp;context=Vimeo\Controller\Api\Resources\Channel\VideosController.&amp;download=1&amp;filename=Dynamic+Controls165.mp4"data-download-hd=";loc=external&amp;context=Vimeo\Controller\Api\Resources\Channel\VideosController.&amp;download=1&amp;filename=Dynamic+Controls174.mp4"data-download-hd=";loc=external&amp;context=Vimeo\Controller\Api\Resources\Channel\VideosController.&amp;download=1&amp;filename=Dynamic+Controls175.mp4">
    <img alt="Dynamic Controls" src="" data-original="">
    So I simply copied and pasted the content of the href (note: I had to add a space between h and t in https to avoid the MEDIA tag to render it in spoiler above) in my browser's URL bar and watched the video.
    BTW, the link on Vimeo that Erel suggested in post #10 works ok.

    I'm strongy inclined to blame some setting on my notebook, but as far as I can enjoy any ETP video..who cares? eheh

    Which browser are you using? Have you tried it with a different one?

    I will add a link to the Vimeo channel.

    Same behaviour. Don't waste your time. It 's highly probable that it depends on my local settings.
    Anyway, adding a link to the Vimeo channel page is a good idea.

    Dear Erel ,
    I am unable to access Vimeo from here (India) , would be grateful if an alternate website is available.

    The tutorial are working. I checked in different ISP and found not working in one, so may be it is ISP problem. Vimeo is accessible in India.



    I am using BSNL Broadband in Kolkata, India.
