Do you need to save copies of the movies for
classroom lecture, presentations, or other instructional applications?
1. The Download Movies Page...
From any page of our website that contains movies, find the Download Video button next to any movie of interest. Click this button to go directly to the options for downloading that movie from the Download Movies page.
2. Review our Creative Commons License for Re-using Movies...
We encourage you to download and re-use our movies for lectures, presentations, and instructional applications. However, your use of the movies is governed by our Creative Commons License. Please review the guidelines:

3. Options for Movie Downloads...
We realize that there are a variety of computers and devices across the globe. So we have tried to anticipate your needs by providing a variety of movie file formats:
- QuickTime, 640x480/640x360; High Quality MPEG-4, H.264 compression (good for Macintosh-based PowerPoint or Keynote presentation software), captioned in English
- Windows Media, 640x480/640x360; High Quality WinMedia v9 compression (good for Windows-based PowerPoint presentation software).
- Mobile Devices & SmartPhones, MPEG-4 baseline compression for many portable devices.
- Some movies, such as the Neuroanatomy Video Lab: Brain Dissections, are also available in high-definition 1280x720 format.
4. Batches or Individual Movies?
You'll notice on the Download Movies Page that for each neurologic exam you can choose to download all of the movies from a section as a batch or as individual movies. It just depends on how many movies you would like to re-use.
5. The Downloaded Movies are Zipped...
When you click a download button for either a batch of videos or an individual file from our Download Movies Page, you are getting a "zipped" or compressed package. This prevents a movie from accidentally trying to be played by an application on your computer, when all you really want is the file to be copied to your computer or device.
What happens next will depend on several factors: which web browser you’re using, how that browser handles .zip files, and how your computer is set up to handle downloads.
Usually any request to download a zipped file will store that file in your computer's "Downloads" folder. Some web browsers may also ask you to specify a folder or directory where you prefer to store your downloaded files.
6. How to Extract Zipped Video Files...
Once a downloaded .zip file is transferred to your local drive or device, you need a software program that allows you to open .zip archives. Many computers have such a program already installed. But if you don't already have a program, you can download for FREE a utility called StuffIt Expander from SmithMicro (use the links listed directly below). Be sure and download SmithMicro's FREE version of StuffIt Expander. You do not need to purchase their full StuffIt suite of software...

Sometimes, an error occurs when attempting to unzip a file. Most of the time, just double-clicking a .zip file will launch the extractor. Occassionally, some computers will display an error message. The solution that has worked is as follows:
- Can't unzip a downloaded movie because of an error?
-Avoid double-clicking the downloaded zip file to open it.
-First, launch your unzipping utility (such as the free StuffIt Expander for Win or StuffIt Expander for Mac).
-Second, from your unzipping utility, point to the zip file you downloaded.
-Third, enter the password to unlock the zipped movie(s) (see below).
7. You Need our Password to Unzip a Downloaded Neurologic Exam Video or Neuroanatomy Video Lab File...
When you "unzip" (extract) one of our .zip archives for Neurologic Exam videos or Neuroanatomy Video Lab files, a dialog box appears, asking you to enter a password. Once you enter our password and save the video file, you can play the clip directly from your local hard drive and re-use it without worrying about the password again. You may re-use our videos in lectures, PowerPoint or Keynote presentations, quizzes, exams, problem-based learning cases, or multimedia learning objects.
Under no circumstances should you re-post our movies to YouTube or other similar video distribution services. Movies that you re-use in your own applications do not have to be password protected. Our password is good for all downloaded Neurologic Exam videos and Neuroanatomy Video Lab files you need to unzip.
