Watching and Downloading Videos
How do I watch the videos I purchased online?
You can watch and download videos from the O'Reilly video player which is accessible from Your Account at https://members.oreilly.com/account/emedia. On that page, below each video's title, you'll see a button to "Watch/Download Video" which will take you to the video player.
Why are play and download buttons missing from my videos?
How can I download all of my videos at one time?
To download all available videos, click the large download icon in the upper right corner of the video's table of contents. You can also download all videos in a single chapter by clicking the download icon on the chapter row. This feature works best in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Internet Explorer 9+ can work, but concurrent downloads are unreliable, so we don't recommend using IE.
You will be prompted to confirm that you want to download all the videos before they begin. Most browsers will run six concurrent downloads at a time and kick off the next download when a prior download completes. There is no easy way to cancel all of the downloads, which is part of why we ask to confirm. However, closing the browser window will stop more downloads from entering the queue.
Some browsers might ask you to confirm each video as it downloads. This can vary by operating system and browser. You'll have the best experience when downloading multiple videos if you change your settings, like this:
- In Chrome, Preferences > Advanced > Downloads, uncheck "Ask where to save each file before downloading".
- In FireFox, Preferences > Applications > Content Type, search for "mp4" and select "Save File" from the "Action" drop-down in the right column.
How can I save videos to my iOS device?
iOS will currently prevent you from downloading videos directly to your device from a web browser. The work-around for getting video files onto your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch is to download the files to your desktop or laptop computer, add them to iTunes, and then sync them to your devices.
