Ggobi movies

Have you checked out the ggobi demo movies yet? We've just added a new movie demonstrating using the 2D tour in ggobi. Have a look to learn about the basics of touring, including projection pursuit and manual controls.

Is there a movie you'd like to see? Please let us know!

Any chance of allowing the movies to be downloaded and saved? Streaming them uses a lot of bandwidth ...

Good idea. I'll add links to download the movies in the next few days.

I've downloaded all demo movies on disk but my QuickTime 6 cannot see two movies: 'teaching with ggobi' and 'tour'. Could you help me? The other ones are perfect.
Thank you.

Michele, you might need to update to the latest version of quicktime. Please let us know if that doesn't work.

I've got the 6.5.2 version of Quicktime, the latest available for my system (Windows 98 SE), but I cannot watch the video, can only listen to the audio.

Hi Michele,

It sounds like you won't be able to play the videos on your system. We do want to make them more available so I think we will try producing the next few in flash.

I can't view these movies either. I'm on a win xp system with the latest version of quicktime. What system did you guys make these movies for?

I clicked on the tour high-dimensional data link and quicktime flashed up then disappeared. I could hear the sound. So I looked at the page source and put tour.mov as the url and the movie played fine. This was on Windows XP and Firefox.

Well, we built them on a mac and they should work on a pc, but if there are widespread problems, I'll look into encoding them into flash.

As others, I can't view the movie names "tour", but the other ones work. I'm on a win 2000 system with the latest version of quicktime.

Hmmm, I think we may have entered what is known as "encoding hell" - translation to flash is moving up the priority list.
