I’m frustrated!

playing movies with boardmaker player

When I transfer an interactive board I made on one computer to another (to be used with the player), the movies never transfer or open. Is there a way to package the board and movie so it will work on a second computer with the Boardmaker player? I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong!

    For me the easiest way to keep them all together is to create a folder and make the board in that folder.
    You can open the board wherever it is and save the board in a new folder. It will autmatically save its movies with it. Then you can zip it or export it.
    All the sounds and movies will be there!

    If you are searching for your missing movies, here's how you find them:
    1. Get out of Boardmaker, remembering the name of the board that had the movies.
    2. Open your board folder. Look for the folder inside with the name of the board on a folder with .mm after it. All the movies/sounds that go with that board are in there.

  • Using the Edit > Export > Individual Boards to a Package option is also a good way of preparing boards to be moved. When you select boards to package, the program automatically grabs any linked multimedia files and includes them in the package, wrapping everything up in a single, small archive file that you can move to another computer. Once the package file is on the other computer, you can then import the board package. This is really convenient if you also want to share the packaged boards on BoardmakerShare.
