 ABOUT MANTISFLIX QUALITY

Our Video Library of Southern Praying Mantis Kungfu dates back to 1950 in China and contains hundreds of hours of footage.  Quality of the programs varies according to the age and format of the original recording.   Many of the older programs were originally recorded on 8mm or 16mm.  As best possible, we tell you what to expect and also provide you with a preview.   Be sure to view the five MantisFlix previews online now!

TROUBLE SHOOTING

OTHER PROGRAMS RUNNING ON YOUR COMPUTER

Some very processor-intensive programs or activities can cause your video playback to "stutter" because your computer is over-taxed. If your computer is older or you have a lot of programs running while you're watching a video, try closing those other programs to improve your video playback.
