Tutorial Formats
Flash (SWF) Format:
The Flash format of our tutorials is what we've always provided, since 2005. They are suitable for displaying on websites, and providing links to them in emails and live chat sessions. They are much smaller than video (MP4 or WebM) in terms of file size, which means they load much faster. They are your best choice if you want to display your tutorials on a website, but they are not supported by YouTube, or devices that don't support Flash (like Apple's iOS devices: iPhone and iPad). DemoWolf Flash Tutorials are available in Standard (non-voice, or silent) versions, or Voice (with audio narration) versions. Flash tutorials will be branded with your company logo in the first and last frame of every tutorial.

All of our tutorials can be previewed in SWF format on the Hosting Tutorials page. Simply click the icon next to a series title for a complete list of the tutorials in the series.
Video (MP4) Format:
The MP4 video format is a popular video format used by many to upload videos to YouTube or Vimeo. Beginning in August 2011 all DemoWolf tutorials have been available in MP4 format as well as Flash. They are suitable for uploading to YouTube, or displaying on devices that do not support Flash (like iPhones and iPads). With YouTube becoming more of an integral part of social networking, more and more companies are creating YouTube "video channels" and can now upload these Video Tutorials to those channels. DemoWolf Video Tutorials are also available in both Standard (non-voice, or silent) or Voice (with audio narration) versions. Video tutorials will be branded with your company logo in the first and last scene of every tutorial.

Video (WebM) Format:
Starting in July 2014, and as a compliment to the MP4 format, DemoWolf now offers its entire library of tutorial series in WebM format. By having both MP4 and WebM formats, you can achieve full native browser video playback support across all platforms, including mobile devices.

Are your video tutorials HTML5 compliant?

In order to fully support all modern browsers and mobile devices, you'll need both MP4 and WebM formats. Video hosting sites such as YouTube will convert any video you upload into the necessary formats, but if you want to host your own videos you will need both formats.


Article (Text w/Images) Format:
Beginning in August 2011, all DemoWolf tutorials became available in Text/Image format... now known as the "Article" format. These tutorials are suitable for integrating into a knowledgebase or other help-based systems, and provide another way for customers to get the help they need. Tutorials are clearly presented with text, and supported by images showing where and what to click, type, etc. They are a great way to populate your knowledgebase articles, and are generally thought to be better for SEO (Search Engine Optimization)... a good complement to the Flash or Video tutorial formats, but not meant to replace them. All images in these text-based tutorials will be branded with your company logo as a watermark.

Tutorial Options
Voice Audio:

All DemoWolf tutorials in Flash, MP4 video and WebM video formats, are available in either our standard silent (with text caption instructions) format, or optionally with voice audio narration of the instructions. For our voice audio formatted tutorials, we only use real professional voice artists, and not computer generated voices. Adding voice audio to your tutorials give your viewers a higher quality video experience, and are better suited for uploading to YouTube or Vimeo.

Text Captions:

From the time we first starting providing hosting tutorials in 2005, we've always included text captions in our tutorials as a means of portraying the instruction part of the tutorials. This held true in 2006 when we introduced a voice audio option... the tutorials still included the text caption instructions. Starting in July 2014 however, you now have the option of NOT including these text captions... as may be desirable when ordering video tutorials with voice audio narration. With voice audio, it is no longer necessary to also provide the text captions... unless you still want to. Therefore when choosing voice audio, you can now choose whether or not to also have text captions.
