    Default New site....

    A few years ago I made a simple website with a different programme, but this is my first with Xara.

    I have to say that for less than £50 this is a great bit of software. Weíve had a few cross words in the making of this site, but I havenít yet found a piece of software that didnít need a stern talking to every now and then.

    Leaving aside the (fairly significant!) issues of the design and content of the site I am a bit disappointed that the little movie doesnít want to play on the browsers that came with an LG phone and a Samsung phone, and while the text embedding seems to work it occasionally gives up on my (relatively new) Desktop. I donít know whether it would have been better to have all the text as graphics (?) Ė Itís only a site for fun, but I would like to know that the people who do look at it see what I wanted them to see.

    Anyway, enough rambling, here it is;

    Thank you for those kind words Ray - I really appreciate them. Although it's a frivolous site I did put a lot of effort into it! The video playback problem seems to be with the default browser that comes with some phones (e.g. Samsung S6, LG G4). If I switch to Chrome it's fine.The default browser will play the same video from Youtube, and, for example, tutorial videos from the Xara site with no problems. I don't have anywhere near the technical knowledge to know what's going on or if there is a solution!
