    HD downloads
    When I saw the link to buy "HD Downloads", I thought great. But no, they are not downloads. I'm buying simply a custom player with online login auth necessary. If that's all "downloads" meant I may as well just have used my browser to play them. And in fact, it should just be a part of the standard subscription package. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I bought the tutorial, it's worth the money, and useful, but let's face it, piracy can no longer be stopped. At some point it seems like legitimate users just internalized these limitations on legit purchases of goods, in order to "stop piracy", yet we see all the products we buy get pirated anyway, so why are we still doing these limitations? If it was my company, I would have HD Downloads actually mean DRM-free, zipped and normal .mp4 files, and I would advertise it that way. "Hey you, buy the tutorials from us without restriction! You don't need to DL that pesky torrent. It's all right here, completely open and without limitations and you'd support us". I'd give you my money gladly and we'd stop senselessly punishing legitimate users for no reason whatsoever.

    Hi rob0t. The NED player I think really works well than simply having QT movie files. Its a great way to manage the different macProVideo courses you have downloaded. You can also add notes and comments to tutorials in case you need to refer back to them at any time. So I understand what you mean by there being a proprietary software to be used for the tutorials, but it really works well as a tool to view them

    hi, I completely agree with rob0t, being stuck with NED made me stop using macprovideo, nowadays I spend most of my time on a 13'' laptop and the extra room used by the GUI bothers me quite a bit, also I can't stream them to my Apple TV. Is there any chance we can convince you to, at least, give the option to download plain video files? cheers
