Hello,

i am new with openGL. Does anybody knows a good tutorial for OpenGL with c++? I prefer youtube.
I found a tutorial that's called "Beginners' OpenGL 3+ - Starting Out". I can't post URL's because i'm new. /watch?v=XMgfddy7S7Q
Is it up to date and a good tutorial?

Greetings from Holland.

The wiki has a whole list of tutorials (https://www.opengl.org/wiki/Getting_Started#Tutorials_and_How_To_Guides), take a look if you like any of those. The ones in the first group (OpenGL 3 and newer) are generally explaining current methods.

I have read the first few page's from http://www.arcsynthesis.org/gltut/
but i don't understand how you have to install the programs. Do you have a tutorial (youtube or with pictures)?

Hmm, a tutorial for the tutorial? ;) Somebody else (https://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/showthread.php/184883-Sooo-close-I-can-smell-it%21-And-it-s-making-me-really-damn-hungry) was struggling with the build procedure as well recently and wanted to write up more detailed instructions, maybe that has happened already?
Anyway, while I think Alfonse's tutorial is pretty good, there are other options listed on the wiki that you may like better (I'm not familiar with them so can not make recommendations).

That's me.
@Carsten Neumann- I've been busy lately so I haven't been able to get to uploading it yet, but I'll put it up today, should help
