Bob Easton, who helps me from weeping uncontrollably when dealing with any computer issues (I often refer to him as my computer guru) has gone through the process of making all videos on my online woodcarving school available as a download. In his own words, he explains it like this:
“The School of Traditional Woodcarving now has download provisions for all videos. Some subscribers are on slower connections, usually out in remote places where the online sacrifice is offset by their bucolic settings. Others have wanted to time-shift their viewing, downloading when network congestion is low and watching when convenient. Yet, others like being able to carry the iPad or other mobile device to the shop where there’s an even slower connection, or sometimes no connection at all.
Find a download link below each video. After a download completes, double click the file to open in whatever viewer is available on your computer.
This new download service is available to regular annual subscribers and to monthly subscribers who have stayed beyond the trial period. It is not available to one-week pass holders or to those within trial periods.”
I just ask that you play nice and please do not abuse this new set-up. Please note the updated “terms and conditions” note in reference to downloading videos:
“Uploading this copyrighted content to video sharing sites, posting links or embedding on other web properties, and/or reselling content is prohibited and will result in immediate membership cancellation.”
I am very excited about this new option, as this will also make it available to people in areas where they are charged for the amount of time they use their internet system (my sister-in-law in Canada is charged this way).
Check it out and have fun!
