Videos are hard to see

How are you suppose to see the codeing being down on the videos with the black background, I can see this will not work for me, even if I use full screen, at least i was able to find out durning a trail period, or am I missing something? Thx

I'm not 100% sure what you are referring to.

To better help us understand can you ...

  • take a screenshot
  • upload it somewhere
  • link to it here in this thread

Then we can see what you see.

I am working on the web dev track, of course it starts out with html, went into the editors. now on the video he is writing the code for us to look at and tell us whats up. The problem is when they made these videos they are using the text editor with a 'black background' and then the code they are writing is also a dark color very hard to see. Do you think if this answer had a black background it would be hard to read. It is a shame because I really like the site but it just won't work, thx for your help
