Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I download an item from eMedia?

    You can download any item scrolling down to the bottom of the page where you will see “Downloads”. Click the download button next to the title of the item you would like to download. You then can select where you would like to save the media item.

  2. Why can’t I preview a video?

    eMedia depends on a few media players to display videos. You'll need Adobe Flash and Apple QuickTime Player. Both are free downloads. Information on the players can be found on Quick List of Instructions.

  3. What is the difference between a QuickTime video and a Windows Media video?

    They are both media types, meaning they are digital video formats. The difference is that they are each intended for different audiences/users. QuickTime is largely for the Mac system audience, while Windows Media Player is largely for the PC system audience. Almost all eMedia videos give you the option of downloading a QuickTime or a Windows Media video, so that Mac and PC users alike have equal access to our excellent media collection!

  4. Where does my file go when I download it?

    After you click the download button, your browser will prompt you and ask you where you would like to save the media file. Save the item in a place you will be able to locate it once the download is complete. You can also rename the file at this time. If your browser does not ask you where you would like to save the file, check your default download folder. In many cases, it will be on your desktop.

  5. I see many download options. Which item should I download?

    eMedia offers various file formats and sizes for you to download based on your connection speed and computer operating system. You should always download the "Video for Download" version of the item.
