I have enjoyed watching the video classes on my computer for a few years now and recently purchased an iPad. I have access to sewing video tutorials from other online sites that my iPad can stream to my TV through my Apple TV. While streaming works for PR course videos, the resolution is quite poor. In fact, even on my 24" computer monitor it is fuzzy.
I am hoping that PR can stay abreast of the technology so that the course videos can present a clearer and cleaner image.
Thanks for all the work that you are doing to stay current with technology. The video courses are a very nice addition.
Sandi

Sandi, thanks for your feedback. Is it for all the courses or a few specific ones? The reason I ask is because all the recent classes are HD so it should work better.

Also, we're having a sale on all our classes this month. $29.99 for free members and $27 for Friends of PR!

I am currently watching Sarah V's slippery & drapey videos. I am also taking a video class on Craftsy.com and they are razor sharp even on my 46 inch TV display.
When watching Sarah V's videos on my iTouch they look fine. But there is quite a difference when I watch them in Full Screen mode on my computer monitor or if I use my TV set as a monitor. I haven't gotten through all of Sarah's videos yet so perhaps some will be better.
I did go back in my account history and followed the link for her 2009 Understanding Knits videos. They were *stuck* in a small, defined window size but they did show up crisp.

BTW, I thought when I signed up for that Understanding Knits class, that my video link would expire. It actually disappeared but I extended it by special PR request for access. Then it expired again but today I discovered it is there again. Is PR now offering us un-expired access to videos that we add-on to classes? If so, that will motivate me to sign up for a few more under the PR November Special!
Thanks, Sandi

Hi Sandi,

We are working on offering high definition videos for all our newer classes so the newer videos will be better.

Regarding videos expiring, videos and lessons for any class regardless of when you signed up will never expire. They will be accessible from your account page.

Add-on videos. We do promotion from time to time on the add on videos for classes you've already taken. Let me see if I can offer that now.
