Your first considerations:
You need to determined your connection speed (how fast your online connection) is. For example dial up will be very slow, DSL depending on your agreement can be fast, cable even faster. You will want to download a smaller file for the slower download but understand the viewing screen is much smaller in size. You cannot change or return a download if you are unhappy with the screen viewing size. You also should not stretch the viewing window as it will distort and make the image less sharp.
You can view our videos in QuickTime or ITunes. We use the H264 processor for exporting our videos to ensure the sharpest and clearest picture. ITunes gives an exceptional viewing window even if you do not intend to use and iPod or iPhone. For any m4v downloads intended for iPods or iPhones these downloads must be viewed on ITunes. If you do not have ITunes or QuickTime on your computer you will need to install it before being able to view. Make sure your computer is compatible and has the room and ability to download these programs prior to purchasing any of our downloads. Downloads are non refundable once the download has been initiated. Show Me How Videos is not responsible for any inadvertent damage, freezing, crashing, or viruses which may result from downloading any of the viewers or our video or audio downloads. You agree to be solely responsible for your computer and it’s performance.
