Hi Elliot I have always had a problem with the videos as I don't use acrobat, is it possible to have them as a separate file?

You’re welcome, Alan (sorry about missing your post earlier.) If you’d be interested in testing the MOV videos, I’d be happy to send them your way (although I will need your contact info.) One Mac user tested them so far, and reported that they work.

Paradise, yes you can have them as separate files. Just send me your purchase info, an email address and whether you need WMV or MOV format?

The MOV videos will probably be made available to all Mac users next week.

Thanks again,

Elliott

I was also having trouble viewing the videos. I'm not sure when the trouble started as I remember being able to view them in the past. At any rate, I did sent Elliott a quick e-mail and he was quick to reply. His suggestions was enough to get me to the solution...I will provide a link here to anyone using Adobe Reader X... In a nutshell the program (by default) runs in protective mode. Of course there was not much hint of the problem with the file itself...only that it would not play and gave no error code.

At any rate, I had a look at the version I was using as suggested by Elliott and then clicked on the "about Adobe Reader X" link. It was here that the hint of my problem was discovered and resolved. Thanks for the help Elliott...I appreciate your quick turn around with my technical question, and I hope this follow up may help someone else in the future.

Thank you very much, John. I am glad to hear you got the videos to work on your PC.

OK. Several people have tested the Mac MOV video files and claim that they work. So, I uploaded the Mac videos to my processor and they now come bundled with every Switchcraft purchase as three separate files in addition to the main book(s.)

Of course, the PC WMV videos are still embedded in the PDF.

If any existing customers need the Mac video files, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Part of me is a little nervous that the extra three files will cause unnecessary confusion. If that happens, I guess I’ll play things by ear.

Thanks again,

Elliott

Elliott, I am glad to hear the videos are working. Not running a Mac, but I was pretty sure they would work without issue. As an added benefit any PC users with itunes (or quicktime) installed should be able to view the MOV files as well

When you get it is far less important than making sure you get it!

You're in for some great reading, my friend, and some seriously fantastic effects!

Thank you so much. I really appreciate your purchase and your posts, and am very pleased to hear that you are enjoying the book.

Gmeister, thank you very much for your post.

David, thanks again for your help extracting and converting the videos. You are a lifesaver.

Ugh,

Why do I keep forgetting to get this! It was going to be my only mentalism purchase and yet I keep neglecting my intentions....perhaps I should invest in a mem technique book as well.

Respect,
Billy

Thank you for your interest, Billy. Should you ever make the purchase, I hope that you find your money was well spent.

On another note, I received a nice contribution for a future supplement yesterday.

Thanks again,

Elliott

I was just replying to a comment on my Safwan Papers thread about it "having legs."

Now THIS post has legs! FIVE Years, 36 pages, and still an incredible value that only gets better with each Supplement.

Nice, Elliot!

I just received 2 excellent never-before-published contributions (a technique and a routine) from a member of the Café.

If I combine those two items with an unpublished billet presentation of mine (that recently had a significant impact on my life,) I will get a pretty nice sized 20th supplement.

I plan to begin putting it together in September.

If anyone has any amazing techniques or routines that they would like included in the 20th supplement, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Elliott

Elliott,

Good to hear from you. I was wondering how you were doing.

Thank you, Bobby.

I’ve been doing alright.

It’s hard to believe that I left this thread alone for eight months, but I’ve been pretty busy. First there was the article in Mind Blasters USA. Then I wrote two supplements for Mind Blasters USA. Then I started writing another book (unrelated to magic or mentalism.) And then I got engaged. The wedding is scheduled for August and my free time has been filled with lots of wedding related matters.

That being said, I do plan to start putting together Switchcraft supplement # 20 in September.

Thanks again,

Elliott

Thank you so much for starting this thread, Dominic. You and Doctor Landman (another early customer who started a review thread) are two of my favorite people.
