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.

There are lots of sites out there smile

But I'm sure there will be a Poi spinner along shortly to direct you a little better! Good luck smile

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

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.

VLC player (www.videolan.org ) will play FLVs for you and shouldnt flag any security alarms.

:ditto: VLC is the shizniz, VLC Portable is even better. Stick it on a memory stick and no install needed.

hey NAVY - could you have your mates shoot a vid of you playing Poi on that vessel?

AND post it out there on YouTube (by the time you're back)?

Thanks

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.
