What do I do if my video playback is choppy?
There are many possible reasons why you may be experiencing poor video playback. HD video playback requires a better than average internet connection and computer processor, so if you have a slow connection or older computer, you may experience issues.
If you are experiencing choppy playback you may try one of the following to resolve this:
- Turn off other programs, virus protection, ad blocker, or energy saving settings as they may interfere with HD video playback.
- Stop any files that you may be downloading in the background.
- Try closing other browser tabs if you have many opened.
- Try another browser and see if that helps. We recommend the latest versions of the following browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox.
I get a black screen when trying to play back videos, what should I do?
This may be because you don’t have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed. You can get the latest version here.
What's the main difference between all the video formats available for download?
We offer different download options so you can make the best choice to fit your needs: MP4 is a modern format with excellent file compression while maintaining good video quality. It is available in Standard Definition, 720p, and 1080p. A newer computer is required to play back smoothly. Older computers may have trouble viewing this format and as a result, the picture may be jumpy on such systems. It can run natively in Windows Media Player on Windows Vista and 7 or Apple OSX.
IPHONE/MOBILE is an MP4 format specially optimised to be used on mobile devices.
I can't log in, why is that?
You may be using the wrong username/password combination to log in. Make sure you use your username to login and not your email address. Your email address may be associated with an older expired account. Check the purchase confirmation email we sent you upon signing up if you don't recall your username. If you can’t find it, try checking your email account's spam folder.
It is also possible that your membership may have been banned. We may temporarily ban your membership if we feel your account has been compromised. We may ban accounts due to sudden increases in the number of login attempts. Increased login attempts may mean that your username and password have been compromised and/or shared/posted on the internet. Your personal data is secure and no transactions can be made during this ban period. Contact us if you think your account has been banned to have your password changed and your account reactivated.
I forgot my password, how do I retrieve it?
In order to obtain your password, you must click on the "Forgot Password?" link found on the login page. You will then be asked to provide the email address you used to join the site with. Once completed, your password will be e-mailed back to you. If you aren't receiving your password via email, be sure to check your email account's spam folder.
