What format is the digital material in?
The downloadable video files are H.264 encoded in an MP4 container. All the files should be playable in any modern system. We recommend the free and open-source VLC player for playback.
Are there any restrictions on what I can do with my downloads?
Your downloads are unique to you and we ask that you do not redistribute or sell the material. Once you download a video, it's yours to keep forever, and yours to use for any reasonable personal use.
Does it matter where I live?
Generally, no. We do not have any geographical restrictions.
I tried to download something to my iPad/iPhone/Kindle/Xbox and it didn't work.
Although some of these devices can stream audio & video, most of them cannot save downloads. If you would like to download the videos for viewing on your device, download it to your PC/Mac and transfer or sync the file from there. If you don't know how to do this with your device, please contact support at the device's manufacturer.
I tried to burn a DVD but it didn't work.
The video files we provide are as mainstream and compatible as we can make them, so they should work for the vast majority of software out there. Unfortunately we're not able to offer support for DVD burning. If you need help burning a DVD, please contact the manufacturers of the software.
My download was interrupted.
We use Amazon Cloud for distributing the digital files, and they find a server closest to your location for the best possible speed. However, sometimes connections can be slow. We would recommend trying other browsers if you see frequent interruptions, and another internet connection if one continues to fail.
If you have no luck or need a download back, contact our customer service staff by clicking http://www.fret12.com/contact and selecting Customer Service from the drop down menu.
All my downloads are gone but I only downloaded the file once.
If you use a download accelerator/manager (e.g. DownThemAll for the Firefox browser), a single click will deplete your account of downloads. Please download directly without additional software.
I have problems playing a downloaded video.
Please try VLC Player (videolan.org/vlc) which should be able to play the file fine. If you continue to have trouble, try another download or contact our customer service staff by clicking http://www.fret12.com/contact and selecting Customer Service from the drop down menu.
