AdBlock Plus in under a minute (Firefox) [ID:626]

Video Tutorials

1. Adblock Plus in just over a minute (Firefox)

AdblockPlus.org hosts the popular adblocking plugin for Firefox. This video shows you how and why you should use Adblock Plus to filter ads in your browser. We created this video for open-source advocacy inside ProCasts as we're long-time users of Adblock. We spoke with Wladimir (author) and tailored this production to meet the needs of the users who generated most of the queries.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Ian
