I remember viewing that video back when I was running BIAB in Win95/Win98. No YouTube then; you had to download it and make sure you had run the TSCC (TechSmith Camtasia Codec) video codec to view it. There were a bunch of short videos like this that helped set up your system.

Likewise with something called the "Ensharpen codec" on our Mac front... which I'm still finding an installer for in my bundle, for absolutely no reasons at all crazy

Oh... I remember the "download the TSCC codec" phone calls VERY WELL! smile

(not from 1997 - that was something that was commonly said during my 2005-2007 days too!)
