For those that have ordered the videos, have you done the online/download version, or ordered the DVD's? Do they run smooth in "full screen mode", or do you have to watch them at a reduced size on your computer monitor? I also presume the download version is an actual download that saves on your computer, not just a streaming video... correct? I'm just trying to decide if I want to spend the extra money for the DVD's or not.

Thanks for your help.
Tip It and Rip It.

I bought the downloads. They're actual vid files, which you can play on your pc or put on your ipod/iphone to review on the mountain. They run fine, good production quality. Absolutely recommend the downloads.

Thanks much Donutz. I have a conference I am attending this week which means a couple hours travel in a car (I'm not driving), and time to kill in a hotel room. Planning on getting the downloads now to help prep for the season... and kill some time

I hope to get the discount code sometime today so I can get the downloads tonight.

I second the quality (on all aspects) of their downloadable video files. Instruction is great, videos well put together, and VERY well explained. I downloaded the files and watch them all the ime on my phone.

HOWEVER, this auto billing of my credit card is something I dont like. Thanks for the heads up on that one guys..... gotta look into that

Did anybody else have trouble converting the files on a Mac? I can't turn them from .zip files into anything else. I sent them an e-mail and they said they should get abck to me in 48 hours, but I'm too impatient.

I don't watch mine on the mountain, but I do watch them when I'm on the tread mill at the gym

good idea! Is there a way to turn off the audiotrack though? The instrumental music playing in the background is driving me nuts...it just loops and loops and loops. I'd like to play some other music while watching the vid, but still have the narration.

Not that I know of and to be honest I'm so focused on the instruction and video image I never noticed the background sound track

After receiving and watching more of the vids I say they are definitely worth it. Very well explained and I can see they will help me raise my level of boarding a lot this year.
