macProVideo WebPlayer 2.0. Now in Glorious Fullscreen HD!
We are thrilled to announce something big. Huge... HD! Thanks to your feedback, our tutorial WebPlayer has been completely redesigned from the ground up by our talented web team. And believe me, it rocks!

A Cleaner interface

The first thing you will notice is the new streamlined interface. It's easier than ever to navigate through our library by browsing genres and popular topics, or by entering a search query. All recently released tutorials are prominently displayed for your convenience so you can't miss what's new.

The new WebPlayer.

The new WebPlayer Welcome screen.


Fill your screen!

Fullscreen video has been one of the most requested feature for our NED.web player. I'm pleased to tell you that you can now stream all our tutorials in fullscreen directly in our HD WebPlayer. Even better, it's now possible to view the tutorials in all their HD glory! To do this, you simply need to click on the "HD" button while watching a tutorial. Our most popular titles are already available in HD, and more are being added over the following weeks.
Fullscreen and HD modes are now supported.

Where was I?

There's only 24 hours in a day and unfortunately, most of us can't spend them all watching macProVideo courses. There's so much to learn, but so little time! Admittedly, it's not always possible to watch an entire tutorial in one go. Would it be handy if our HD WebPlayer would remember where you left off in a tutorial? Our web team thought of that!

When you log in your account you will see a "Resume" button in the top left-hand corner of the window. Just click on it and presto! Your last viewed video will start to play.
Continue watching right from where you left off.

Continue watching right from where you left off.


Additionally, you have easy access to all recently viewed titles in the "Recently Watched" section. Simply click on a title and press "Resume" to watch the tutorial where you left. Nifty!

To give you more valuable screen estate, the tutorial table of contents is now hidden from view by default. You can either click on the "Outline" button or on the "Show Outline" tab to reveal it. Videos that you've not yet watched will have a dot beside them, very useful if you don't watch tutorials linearly.

To hide the Outline menu simply click on the background of the browser or on the “Hide Outline” tab.
Lovely new contents outline that gets out of the way.

Notes, Favorites and History

See that notepad icon below the player? You've guessed it! It's now possible to take notes while watching a tutorial. You only need to start typing... our HD WebPlayer will save your notes automatically to the video as you write them. 
Writing notes to yourself means you'll find the videos you want much more quickly.

Write notes to yourself about a video or topic while watching.


To save a video in your favorites, click on the star button below the web player or in the Outline pane. For quick access, your Favorites, Notes and your viewing History are all available at the top of the HD WebPlayer interface.
Favorites, Notes & History help you find the exact video you want when you want it!

Give it a try!

At macProVideo.com, we are constantly improving the way we offer our ever growing tutorial library. We're very excited about our new HD WebPlayer and we hope it will make your learning experience even more rewarding than before! Please give it a try and let us know your thoughts below!


Editor's Note: The new WebPlayer is fully HTML5 compliant. Please make sure you're running the latest version of your browser to enjoy all the advanced features. We've also built-in a "Flash fallback" so older, non-HTML5 compliant browsers can benefit from the advanced features.

Looks good, but is there a way to keep the player in Full Screen when you click to go to the next video? It always takes it out of Full Screen and you have to click the arrows to get it back. That seems like an extra step.

Hi TV,

Thanks! This is something on the to-fix list as soon as we're able to.

If you find any other issues (or things you like :) be sure to continue to let us know.

Best,

Great job guys! So many features we've asking for. To echo TV though it would be great if we could stay in fullscreen. But even so terrific upgrade!

Thanks Michael!

So, this is WebPlayer 2.0... but there's lots more ideas we're working on with a future version in mind :)

If you have any suggestions or feedback do let us know. I think we'll use the MPV forums for this to make it easier for everyone to collect and share info:

Player now requires Flash.
I will not install Flash on my MAC,
So no more tutorials for me.

Hi nibbler,

The new HD WebPlayer DOES NOT require Flash.

It is fully HTML5 compliant. However, some web browsers (which are not fully HTML5 compatible) can use Flash player as a fallback.

Which version of Mac OSX and Safari are you running?

It also appears that you have to log into both the site and the web player. I don't remember having to log into both before.

@nibbler, What browser are you using? Firefox will require you to use Flash due to the fact that they do not support H264 via HTML5. Safari and Chrome work perfectly and do not require any type of plugin.

@TV, there is some issues with the cookie that we are looking into. Ideally you should only have to login in once on the player.

Great work! It makes a HUGE difference on all the screens, computers, and tablets I watch the videos on. Hope you're ready for the HD bandwidth increase PLUS the extra viewing because the whole experience is so much better!
