Re: [Avid-L2] Re: media players

 

Someone just suggested using davinci free and saving 5$ - but it's possibly overkill for a client putting a safe area on!

Re: [Avid-L2] Background Queue empty

 

Note that there are both 32 and 64 bit versions of Java. 32bit java won't work in a 64bit browser.

Chrome.... it's the fastest browser after IE which I refuse to use.

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Background Queue empty

 

That makes sense.  Discovered recently the Firefox is only 32bit.  Annoying, since it's my preferred browser, but 64 bit stuff doesn't seem to work in Firefox.
