Posted:Does anyone know where i can find good tutorial videos? For some reason the ones here stop playing after a few seconds and wont download any further. Im NAVY and deployed on a ship. I don't have access to youtube.com and i think theres a problem with our server that won't let me download the entire video.

Is there anywhere else i can find these videos but in a different format like a .wav or another? Poi is really thing the only thing thats keeping me from cracking.

Posted:Have you tried just downloading the videos here instead of watching them?

There is a download link below each video. You would just need a player that can play flash videos

Posted:Ya ive pretty much seen everything i can on google. no body posts any tutorials of the more advanced moves on their and i cant go to like metacafe or truveo.

I did download the .flv file but havnt had any luck being able to download the player. Security bit to high. Guess im just screwed till i get home.

I was hoping to see the catseye in motion cause im not quite sure i understand what they mean. but no luck. Ill keep trying.

Posted:One of the all time greats of the poi tutorial... live and on the net is Nick Woolsey. He has a great website at Playpoi with tutorials for all levels. His DVDs are worth getting too, available from HoP easy peasy.
