I can't open video scribe

Thanks for the suggestion, Mike, I ejected under 'devices' but it still just comes up with the image.

You will get the application icon and your Applications folder shortcut. Drag the icon into the folder and the application will be copied to your Applications folder. Double click on the application from within your Applications folder and the application will open.

Double click on the Applications folder shortcut to open your Applications folder

Double click on and VideoScribe will open.
