Hey @JayBee

I don't have a video but I have the link and step by step if that helps: 

1.     Download MetaTrader 4 from http://www.ig.com/content/dam/publicsites/igcom/mt4/ig4setup.exe

2.     Once downloaded, launch the setup file

3.     The installation will start with an introduction to MT4, click ‘Next’ to proceed

4.     Review the terms and conditions, and click ‘Next’ if you agree to these

5.     Choose the directory on your PC to install MT4 to. From here you can also choose to add a desktop icon and to launch MT4 once the installation is complete. Once satisfied, click Next

6.     MT4 will now start installing

7.     Once complete the platform will open automatically. You can also launch MT4 from your desktop, or via the Start menu.

All the best

to add a live or demo account click File > Add an Account > highlight demo or live.

Live > Existing account and connect using the logon and password given in emails.

Demo > just click 'new account' and the platform will generate a new login and password.

Both live and demo tabs will be displayed in the Navigator Tab and you can flick back and forward between the 2.

(must check the 'receive newsletter' box when it comes up)
