CAFE Instructional Videos

OR&R has created a set of instructional videos to help you learn to use the CAFE Database. You can view the videos on this page, or download them to your computer. (Each video is also included as MP4 and HTML files as part of the CAFE installer package.) Closed captioning is available in the HTML versions.

Note: To run video files within CAFE, first open the source files in the CAFE folder and then open the CAFE Videos folder. When beginning a video, be sure to check the checkbox to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" in the Windows Media player.

To help you learn CAFE, you can also refer to the resources provided on the Getting Started page.
