Where, where is it available for purchase?

For comparison this is how to order the DEVKIT-MPC5748G:

From your website:

From OctoPart:

From Mouser:

From Digikey:

Now, this is the same process as above repeated for the DEVKIT-MPC5744P:

Clicking on "Buy Direct" takes you to this:

Clicking on Buy Availability:

OctoPart:

Mouser:

Digikey:

For the root cause, I don't know if it's because I'm in North America or if it's because you're an NXP employee but somewhere there is a disconnect between what you're saying I can do and what I've been able to do. Could you try creating a new, non NXP account and seeing if you can order them?

Thank you for your time.

Question for users within China mainland: as you can see in the threads above the Videos might not work in your country due to filtering/firewall. Do you know any Chinese YouTube like video hosting platform that we could use the make the videos available for Chinese viewers. 

Please leave a reply and we will consider all suggestions as a possible alternative.

Thank you!

Hi Daniel,

        If you can try to upload the video to http://www.youku.com/ or https://v.qq.com. We usually use these websites to view the videos in China.

       Thanks for your support!

For Chinese users,

I tried to follow Paul Xu suggestion and use youku or qq to make the videos available for China mainland but unfortunately Youku gives me an error when i'm trying to bind my phone number to upload the videos, while QQ does not sent me the SMS with the code to upload the video.

We are not going to abandon the idea of making the videos available to you - I'll contact NXP China Sales and Marketing Office to see how can we resolve this ASAP. Till then keep in touch and try to download the low resolution videos from our community or if you have possibility use a VPN. 

Thank for your understanding and patience!

Best regards,
Daniel

Hi David,

No other add-ins should be necessary. Can you see any other videos on this site? Like this one for example:  Video Link : 7526 

If nothing works then i'll report your issue to site administrator.

Thanks for your understanding!

Best regards,
Daniel

David, 

Can you try to download and install the video and audio codecs for MP4 format? You can try this package: Media Player Codec Pack for Microsoft Windows 

Hope this helps!

David, 

It might be something specific to your PC setup. We checked with other PCs from intranet and extranet and the site works OK. Also, i checked the logs and looks like other peoples can see it. Could it be something from your internet service provider ? 

Best regards,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

        I tried all the download link you have provided. It seems doesn`t work. As you know we can`t see the video on the YouTube without VPN, So it`s not convenient in China.

        If there is a way to share more related training data for download like PPT, so we can join the class in this way.
