Good, easy to follow tutorial...great job!

I watched the video about the installation tutorial for Vmware which was actually not the goal of my googlesearch. I already have the software installed so that was not a direct help but have you spent your time to lay out this video proof your will to help those who need juste installation help so I say salut pal.

It is great that you show people how to use VMware. I am new to computer and everything you can show will greatly help me. Many many thanks.

Gave me almost no information. Quite boring. How about a little excitement in your voice instead of monotone.

good job. if the video is split in parts , show that on the screen so that user can easily switch to the next part .

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 Steven
