Linux Player Displays Older Course Content

Follow

THIS LEGACY VERSION (ZIP) OF THE COURSE PLAYER IS OUTDATED AND NO LONGER RECOMMENDED. SEE OUR NEW TRUEFIRE COURSE PLAYER DESKTOP APP (WINDOWS/MAC)

If your Linux Video Player is displaying course content from a course other than the folder you are currently working in, there are two possible remedies.

Assign the Linux Video Player to open in your Browser (and not a specific flash video player).

You have the ability to set which program on your computer is used to run the Linux Video Player. The Linux Video Player should always be assigned to run in your web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc). If it is assigned to run a specific flash video player, then it will always only show that specific course and not update with each new use.

MAC USERS

  1. Control-Click on the Linux Video Player, and go to Get Info



  2. Check the Open with: selection. This should be assigned to Open with your web browser and NOT a Mac Video Player.



    To change the setting, select the drop-down and choose Other.



    Choose to Enable > All Applications and select your desired web browser. In this case, we chose Safari.



    Once you've added the browser as your desired program to Open With, be sure to Change All, so that every time your computer finds the Linux Video Player it will always open in the browser.

  3. Once the Linux Video Player is assigned to your web browser, use as normal to launch the course.

Windows Users

  1. Right-click on Linux Video Player and choose Properties



  2. Check the Open with: selection. This should be assigned to Open with your web browser and NOT a Mac Video Player. 


    In this case, we have selected to Open with Firefox. You can select the change  button to select a different program if your browser is not your default option.



  3. Launch your Linux Video Player in your browser to run the appropriate course.

Use the TrueFire Course Player: Desktop app (Recommended!)

All that being said, we have a new installed player which we recommend all customers use in place of the legacy standalone zip folders.

The new TrueFire Course Player: Desktop app is a one-time installed program which allows you to access your entire course library of lessons from one centralized location. You can download on-demand or in bulk for full offline access.

You do not need to worry about downloading separate standalone course folders with separate video players.

You can learn more about the new TrueFire Course player and download at: www.truefire.com/apps
