Some of you may have already noticed that the download link is back! A few people were having trouble with the embedded download link (some couldn’t see it and others had poor download speeds). But now the traditional download link is available for every video. Simply right-click and save the file. You’ll have the video downloaded to your desktop in no time!
RSS feeds are getting a major change. The feeds will no longer require a username and password, so they can be used in ANY reader. That’s great news! But unfortunately, the feeds also no longer contain video file information. The purpose of the feeds now is to simply notify you of newly-published content. Click the link and it will take you to the post where you can download the video or watch it directly on the site.
When it comes to matters of security the less said the better so I won’t be going into details. But I hope you’ll understand that I’m not making this change arbitrarily. As far as video-based membership sites go we still enjoy a lot of freedom due to our small size and tight community. Most sites won’t even let you download video files and they certainly don’t give you lifetime access like we do. So for folks who use the RSS feeds to do your downloading, you’ll have a couple of extra steps to do including logging in to the Guild site and manually downloading your files. iTunes users can then simply drag the files into iTunes library for viewing or syncing to devices.
So if you do use an RSS reader make sure you update your feeds. Each project has its own feed and the Guild site has its own general feed. These feeds have all changed. You can find all of this information on the Feeds Page.
