What is a "zip" file and how do I access the content?
A ZIP file is simply a collection of one or more files and/or folders but is compressed into a single file for easy transportation and compression.
If your computer is Windows-based, the easiest way to unzip a file is to find the zip file (it may be in a “downloads” folder if you haven’t specified another location, right-click on it and press Extract All.
A new window will open up and you can select where you want the files to be extracted. By default, it will extract the contents to the same directory in which your zip file resides. Just hit extract and a folder will be created that has all of the zipped files in it.
Opening ZIP files on Mac is simple. If you want to use the built-in archive utility, just select the Open option from the context menu. To open a ZIP file using The Unarchiver, open the context menu and select Open With and then The Unarchiver.

Can I download the videos?
The videos are buffering. What can I do?
We suggest two things: Turning off any other program that might be using bandwidth and after clicking play, allow some time for it to download before trying to watch from the beginning.
- Turn of HD by clicking on it at the bottom right of the player. This will be a much less detailed version of the video and harder to see the charts.
- Or try a different browser. Maybe Chrome, Firefox or Opera will work better for you if you are on Internet Explorer.
- And in regard to our last suggestion, please check your speeds. Here is a site for speed test: https://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ Just click on the city that is closes to you and it will run. To run smoothly, you would need 10mbs download or better (ISPs say 5mbs watching videos if nothing else is using bandwidth). Many home internet providers can supply 20 mbs download and 4 mps upload speeds. Others provide even faster accessibility such as 90 mbs download and 12 mbs upload.
- And last, it might be worth it to see if your ISP has a “data cap” on your service that might be slowing it down.
Lastly, you’re going to get better performance when using a desktop or laptop. And remember that if you’re attempting to watch on a smartphone, be sure you’re connected to an active WiFi connection (or you may be using huge amounts of your data plan.)
