Good video for beginners

good, but i wish the end

Let´s see how I could contribute to the Open Map initiative. At least I have started with a donation : )))

If i understood it correctly, even commpanies could use these data without paying for it and contribute to this idea? So the Open Map would be enriched with Companuy Information? Not adevertisement, but global site information


Very useful!

But, similar comments to video 2 - the screen moving around a lot is very distracting (means you can't see the tagging information at all times).

Makes the confusing EDIT-view crystal clear!

Better. More explicit...

Really useful for a potential newbie to see what's involved and some of the possibilities

The tutorials really help a lot mate.

23. anonymous Tue, 08 Dec 2009 05:07

Thanks for the informative videos.

22. anonymous Sat, 28 Nov 2009 05:43

Very nice introduction(s). I'd like to see some more, if you have ideas and time. Thank you so far, however!

21. anonymous Tue, 24 Nov 2009 10:33

Overall, fair.

The audio is just barely intelligible - I had to turn my own volume to max, which I never do otherwise.

Also, I didn't see anywhere along the way how I would find out the set of magic attribute names that were being demonstrated.

20. anonymous Tue, 24 Nov 2009 01:40

Very helpful thank you

video tutorial by steve

seven videos, missed out the chance to comment at the end of each, so overall -- they are brilliant, interesting and informative, a very nice chatty style and a revelation into how it's done, very useful to this novice,

Enormous thanks for the time and effort you put into this.

17. anonymous Fri, 04 Sep 2009 13:38

Good job! To-the-point and practical.

16. anonymous Thu, 03 Sep 2009 00:47

Nice video. It would be nice if one could see the result of that tagging...

15. anonymous Sat, 29 Aug 2009 11:19

Very useful.

Just two little annoyances :

- you move the visible part of your screen too often

- I don't always understand your voice

14. anonymous Sat, 15 Aug 2009 05:16

Very useful, thanks.

13. anonymous Sat, 08 Aug 2009 16:56

Thanks! Your video saves me a lot of time. It's much better one time to see something than ten times to read about. Wish you to have external microphone to have more quality sound in videos.

Thanks again.

12. anonymous Mon, 20 Jul 2009 04:27

thank you for this video tutorial; it was helpful in understanding the consensus methods for addressing.

11. anonymous Sat, 20 Jun 2009 10:07

Nice video

10. anonymous Wed, 17 Jun 2009 03:41

TNX for it!

9. anonymous Tue, 16 Jun 2009 14:49

Great videos... Im trying to get people involved in OSM and your tutorials are very helpful



8. anonymous Sun, 15 Mar 2009 02:28

The video is a little too detailed at the beginning, and a little too fast at the end. I think you should have put numbers on the other side of the road too,

7. anonymous Sun, 01 Feb 2009 13:15

It took over 10 minutes to watch less than 5 minutes of video. It would be most helpful if these videos could buffer. Thanks!

Really useful tutorial. Perhaps the audio quality could be improved by using a headphone with mounted microphone. During the recording there were this noisy tapping sounds by hitting the keys. I think they were so loud because the internal mic was used. I liked how the camera was following the mouse. How was this accomplished? Moving a camera while using the laptop keys seems difficult. I will try the numbering scheme myself soon.

Hi Kyran,

I just tried that too but unfortunately with no success. The effect is the same. I expected something like a download procedure. But what I got was the very slow streaming again. I searched on ma system for the *.flv file but could not find any. Do you have some hints what to do?

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
