Am new to Eclipse, and only programmed briefly about 15 years ago. Video makes for a very accessible route to understanding. I like your style; it was rather clipped and quick - actually perfect for replayable video. So many are laborious. Why be like that when one can replay? Bookmarking you.

Hello, a lot thanks for this excellent work. My English isn't very well, I am sorry.

I liked the way you showed how to import from a web site, very useful.

For some one new to Java I don't know what CVS is or what it does.

Maybe next time show more examples on what you can do with it, and why you would want it.

Thanks for doing this video.

Very good, thank you. Can you do one for Subversion? Also really great to see it done on a Mac for a change...:-) Be good to see one on the gotcha's of developing with with Eclipse on a Mac, thanks.

'somewhere' - can you explain which file you are talking about? If you have used the 'DOWNLOAD THE VIDEO(FLV)' link to download the video file then for this page it is 8.5mb.

FLV files are played by most modern video players including mplayer, Video Lan Client and QuickTime.

Does that help?


why the file i down load is so small and unplayable


You can directly the whole CVSROOT in the "host" field. Eclipse knows how to split it.

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 John
