Can you please figure out how to offer zip downloads of courses?  Im watching them by downloading them and they are all short so its taking forever to watch an 8 min video then download next 5 min video and so on....this is almost making it too much of a hassle to want to complete course. Please fix.confused

The reason it takes forever is that the files are quite large.  This is also why there isn't a solution we can afford to reliably transfer large zipped files.  Especially when a connection may be below average.

We produce Full HD video, which simply means big file size and all of the transfer issues they entail.

If it takes you 5 minutes to download an 8 minute video then your connection speed is quite slow.  Large files zipped files would probably be worse because they would come to you broken.

However, you should be able to set up several downloads at the same time and let them all download while you begin watching.

An alternative is to watch them on Chrome and use the developer tools to change your User Agent to a mobile device.  Then you will get the Vimeo versions of the video which are smaller (because they are viewed on mobile devices).
