This is kind of a joke. Here is an email I just sent:
I’m trying to download the video files for the 2014 Fluent Conference. I have never had such a difficult time downloading anything before... It has been about a 50-60% failure rate... Constantly having to re-download a file until I get it in full. I’m on my 4th day now I believe.
I know for sure that the following files will not download completely. I have tried downloading them in excess of 10 times. How and where can I download them? I’ve tried Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Download Them All, curl, wget. They all fail. They won’t download from your website (http://vplayer.oreilly.com/?video_pro...). Why is this so difficult?
I have forwarded your question on to our Book Tech staff, so they can help you find a solution. If you ever have any questions or issues with the content of a title, you can also contact them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at:
