That's very useful. It's hard to tell when you're starting whether you're doing things right or whether the server is slow etc etc. Good to see how it's supposed to work - ish!

Nice intro. I like the project and am impressed with how much mapping is already done!

Good tutorial on use of Potlatch.

Useful introduction, but could you do a video where the picture isn't jumping about all over the place? It's very distracting.

138. longchamp sac Wed, 01 Sep 2010 12:16

Very helpful, especially the bit about layers, thanks!

Okay I understand a bit more now.

great video, but I don't undestand how to add a customized icon to an interest point.... can you help me?

135. ukazapipowa Sun, 22 Aug 2010 05:47

Thanks for this video tutorial. It's great for me as for beinner. )) I'll try to draw some Russia.

Great tutorial, except for the constantly-moving image. Having a fixed window would be much easier to watch.

I expected some more details inside of the video. I have absolutely no experience and I found out that in my city in Germany there are missing some bakeries, doctors and other things. But after watching the video I am not able to add these things.

Good demonstration

125. Charlesea Fri, 16 Jul 2010 08:43

Wow, Great to know this effort and I'm going to be a part of this open source and create awareness across my social networks.

Keep up and we'll contribute more and more to make a new wonderful experience to this world.

Thanks Steve - I'm just starting with OSM and this has helped. Particularly with how to add a new attribute to a feature.

118. mbt women's casual shoes night in coffee Sat, 29 May 2010 14:50

Still confusing...

117. egoxekadew Sat, 29 May 2010 09:10

thenk you. Ur video was useful. My advise is to speak a bit more slowly.

116. christian louboutin sale outlet Mon, 24 May 2010 09:49

Just what I was looking for as a visual intro

Thanks for the try. But this scrolling and clicking is annoying....

Good intention

Useful tips for intermediate windows users with some common internet knowledge..

Not for linux users and not for total noobs..

4/5 keep up the good way!

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 steve
