We have sought to provide the highest quality video in the lessons that we prepare for the dulcimercrossing.com site.
While traveling across the country and talking with several subscribers, however, Steve has heard stories from patient (as well as frustrated) subscribers whose internet connections will not permit the videos to load in a timely manner.
With the project of re-rending all of the videos on our site and moving them to a new host, we have uncovered a solution that is helping these subscribers:
Vimeo automatically creates a “standard definition” version of the video lessons that we upload, which means if you are having difficulty watching because of excessive buffering and long wait times, choosing the standard definition option (just below the video on the lesson page) may help alleviate this issue.
Vimeo also offers an automatic rendering of the same lesson video for viewing on portable devices. This has helped to solve other issues experienced by other of our subscribers.
We are constantly working on improving the site so that the resources we provide can support your goal of “bridging the gap between what you know and where you want your music to go.”
