Do remember that the compressed versions offered for the reduced price digital download are only 0.5 GB files, rather than the 5.0 size of the full DVD disk versions. Expect a related reduction in overall image quality. In some cases there were additional text files included on the full price disks not found on the lower cost digital download versions.
The original filming on the older programs was done on much older video equipment as well, and so should not be expected to match that filmed with current model cameras.
You can pay using either the Paypal or the Square systems :
Paypal requires your own account, linked to your credit card
Square works directly from either your credit or debit card
(In either case, your transaction is processed by these major and well established companies - I will never know your credit information.)
Once I receive notice of your payment, I will send you a direct personal e-mail giving you the direct link to the file download. I will include the password you will need to unlock the compressed file - required to be ‘unpacked’ before you can view on your normal Mp4 video player.
The compression and password lock on these download files was done from MAC OS, using iZip.
Most purchasing these videos will be using a Windows based OS.
Instructions for opening ZIP compressed files on Windows :
I can only offer limited advice for those of you using Microsoft / Windows computers!
It has been reported that the built in un-archive software on Windows 10 (especially) may not want to open the iZip created files.
Several third party Zip managing programs are available, for free.
