Movie Download Instructions
Do you need to save copies of the movies for classroom lecture or other instructional applications?
1. Go to Download Exam Movies Page...
From any page that has 'SECTIONS' and the movies that go along with those sections: i.e. Mental Status>Abnormal, Cranial Nerve >Anatomy, etc. Find the button located next to the movie icon. Click this button to go directly to that movie's entry on the Download Exam Movies page.
2. Follow the On-screen Instructions...
As the Download Exam Movies page loads in the background, an interrupt message appears asking if you already have a password to unlock the zipped movie files, since these files are password protected. We do want to encourage you to re-use our movies in other teaching materials for appropriate non-commercial, educational use. However, to honor the invaluable contributions and generosity of the many patients who appear in our movies, we ask you to fill out a request form (see the "Request Password" link at the bottom of this page) that tells us a little about who you are and how you will re-use the movie clips. When the request is approved, you will receive an e-mail with the password to unlock the zipped movie files.
3. Download Zipped Movies...
On the Download Exam Movies page, locate the title of the movie (or batch of movies) you wish to download and click the button next to that title.
What happens next will depend on several factors: which browser you’re using, how that browser handles .zip files, and how your computer is set up to handle downloads, as well as other factors.
Follow the instructions, if any, to choose a location and save the .zip file that is being downloaded to your local hard drive. If there are no instructions, look for the file on the Desktop or in a ‘DOWNLOADS’ folder on your hard drive once the download is complete.
4. Extract Zipped Movies...
Now that you have the .zip file on your local drive, you will need a software program that allows you to open .zip archives. If you don’t already have a program, you can download for FREE one called StuffIt Expander from SmithMicro using the links listed below. Be sure and download SmithMicro's FREE version of StuffIt Expander. You do not need to purchase their full StuffIt suite of software...
Expander for Windows
Expander for Mac
When you use one of these "unzip" utilities to extract the .zip archive and save the movie(s), a dialog box appears, asking you to enter the password. Once you enter a password and save the movie file, you can play the clip directly from your local hard drive and re-use the movie in lectures, PowerPoint or Keynote presentations, quizzes, exams, problem-based learning cases, multimedia learning objects, or websites. Movies that you re-use in your own applications do not have to be password protected; they can be open to students worldwide. Click on this link to read the specific re-use guidelines.
