Quicktime can play AVIs. It must be some odd codec he used.
Thanks for the MD link, appreciated. I'm not 3Fly expert at all, but I can't really see what's new. But I haven't studied it so am not qualified to say that really.
I realise that but like you say and it says in the article it could be the PC Codec that the video has been encoded with.
As for the trick, I think the gimmicks basically give you more freedom to clearly show just three coins, and to show your hands empty, but I'm still not convinced lay-people could tell you the difference between that and say doing a four-coin version like Paul Wilsons, or a version with a flipper like Troy Hoosers or with a shell like Reed McClintock's, I think certainly with the flipper/shell versions you can get some of the clean shows and travels, but your mileage may vary if you wish to spend all that on the gimmicks required, personally I'm saving up for a Jamie Schoolcraft shell/flipper set :)
