Problems playing DVC tutorials


My original EDIUS 6 tutorials, as well as the Encore and Premiere Pro CS6 tutorial were made with Encore in Flash. In 2018 these will not play off the hard drive because of Flash security changes. The fix I found in 2017 does not work any more buy if you use Chrome you can still make them play - until Windows changes something else, of course!

This does not affect any of the tutorials you can still buy off my website which are made in HTML5.

Problems playing DVC Flash tutorials

This may work on your system. It was working on most systems until the end of 2017, where more changes were made with how a computer will playback Flash files from a hard drive, and it stopped working for most people. The method above still seems to work in 2018, but only with Google Chrome.

A new version of Adobe Flash Player has been issued with tighter security controls. This now blocks playback of flash files stored on your computer and will only play flash files from the internet.

Affected - Premiere Pro CS4-CS6 tutorials, Adobe Encore tutorials, the Flash versions of the Grass Valley EDIUS 6 tutorials.

Our new tutorials in Premiere Pro CC and Grass Valley EDIUS 7 & 8 are not affected.

Our older tutorials were made using Adobe Encore's Flash output. In the years since they were made things have changed and Adobe Flash is being slowly "phased" out. In the latest update for Adobe Flash, available in September 2016, Adobe have changed Flash so that it will no longer play Flash files which are situated on your hard drive, which means our older tutorials will not work. You can fix this by telling your computer it is ok to play files from the place the tutorials are stored by using the following instructions:

  • Windows 8/10: Right-click on the Start menu and choose Control Panel. or ..
  • Windows 7: Left-click on the Start menu and choose Control Panel.
  • Make sure small icons is selected on the top-right.
  • Double-click on Flash Player (32-bit)
  • Click on the Advanced tab.
  • Click Trusted Location Settings.
  • Click Add.
  • Click Add Folder
  • Highlight the location of your DVC tutorials. If you have bought a DVC system and we have installed the tutorial for you this will normally be E:\Tutorials or sometimes F:\Tutorials, if youre playing the tutorial directly from the DVD drive then it will be K:\ . If you have just bought the tutorial and installed it yourself this will be wherever you decidec to install the tutorial.
  • Hit OK on the Browse for Folder window, then Confirm on the Add Site window
  • Hit Close on the Trusted Location Settings window and finally hit the x on the top right corner of the Flash Player Settings Manager window.
  • Close and re-open the tutorial and it should now play.
