Hey fordry, Hope ya well...

I just seem to get a whole red video screen in Firefox and IE after about a minute (just before you mention the player key so I dont know if this was intentional to hide your key etc).. left it going for a min or so but it stayed as a fully red video screen.

This COULD be my PC but it's a reasonably fresh install of XP updated to SP3 thru Windows Update on a brand spanking new pc.. See if anyone else has problems before fixing it but I thought I'd mention it up front...

Top idea mate and I hope its mine just being awkward. :thumbsup:

Best of luck and happy driving (or happy building servers lol!) :pil

P.S. Its not just you who cant create new topics in tutorials, Hopefully admin will give a reason and 'sticky' it in there... (along with the right place to place such media!)

Hi, i'm interested in the idea of running a server, so i'm looking around for a tutorial to get me off the starting blocks.
May i ask where i can watch this video, as i can't see any links in any posts, or am i just being dumb and missing it ?
