Computer Tip 03 – VLC Player

vlc_logoYou may have noticed in lectures that the VLC Player is used for videos.

This media player is great – I’ve used it for years.  CLICK HERE FOR VLC WEBSITE

It will play all types of audio and video files – even those from phones.

N.B. When installing don’t let it be the default player otherwise you will lose Windows thumbnails especially those for videos. Instead, after you have installed it, right-click on files and folders and choose ‘Open With VLC’.



Spanish Textbook

via_rapideAnyone looking for the Spanish textbook Vía Rápida?

Only place seems the UCC Student Bookshop for €37.70 – mucho dinero..!

I tried Vibes n’ Scribes, Easons, Waterstones, and that second-hand bookshop on George’s Quay.

None of them have it.

‘PowerPoint – Beyond The Basics’, on Thursday 24th September.

Usually €150 but free to anyone on Jobseeker’s Allowance.
