Can I download the video lessons

We don't support any features that will allow our lessons to be downloaded. You must have a decently quick internet connect to view our streaming Flash videos. If you are having streaming problems, read the FAQ directly below titled "I'm having problems viewing your videos.

I'm having problems viewing the videos

Below are the most common ways to fix video issues you may be having. If you choose to write an e-mail to us about video issues, please include all of the steps here you have already followed and be very specific so we can better assist you in moving forward.

1.) Upgrade to the latest version of Flash. You can get Flash version 10 Here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ All of our videos use Flash to play, so it's very important to keep up with the latest version for best video performance. Not having the latest version can cause video stuttering, syncing issues, skipping, stopping or loss of video all together. Once you are absolutely sure you have correctly downloaded and installed the latest version of Flash, please reboot your computer and try again.
2.) Make sure to use the newest version of your web browser. We highly recommend using Firefox or Chrome, as they arefaster and safer then most internet browsers (download Firefox from http://www.getfirefox.com).  However, the latest version of any browser will work as long as it's properly updated. This is very important to ensure site compatibility and optimal performance.
3.) Change your quality setting for faster loading times and server for possible increased connectivity.
4.) Don't run other applications while viewing the videos. If you are having stuttering problems or the video plays too slowly, try running lessons without any other applications going. Click CTRL, ALT and DELETE at the same time to bring up the task manager, and there you can end programs that you are not using.
