How does it work? Answers to frequently-asked questions.
How do I begin?
Once you’ve decided which of the three licenses above will work best for your budget and needs, simply click the button for the license in which you’re interested. You’ll be able to review and sign the agreement online. Once we’ve receive your signed agreement, we’ll generate a PayPal invoice for the amount of the license you’ve chosen.
How long does it take?
Immediately upon receipt of your payment, we’ll either begin work on your videos (in the case of the Fully-Branded Distribution License), or make your videos available for download via a shared Dropbox folder.
What format are the video files?
You will receive the 23 individual video files that make up the WP101 series in H.264 encoded .MP4 format with streaming enabled. This is the standard format for streaming online video, and offers compatibility for mobile devices that don’t support Flash. The video files vary in size between 10-20 MB each.
How may I deliver the videos on my site?
The videos may only be made available to the Distributor’s users via a password-protected or secure area on the Distributor’s website.
What video player do you recommend?
Once you’ve received your video files, feel free to use whatever player you choose to stream the videos to your users. (We use and recommend Vimeo PRO, which allows you to protect your video files from public access, but benefit from an easy upload process and automatic compatibility with mobile devices. Please note that this is NOT the same as Vimeo’s regular service.)
Can I upload the videos to YouTube?
No. The videos may not be uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, Viddler, or any other publicly-accessible video sharing websites. One notable exception is Vimeo PRO, which is different than their regular hosting service and includes the ability to protect videos from the public, and even limit embedding to a single domain—your own.
Can I redistribute the videos?
No. The video files may not be resold or re-distributed in any way, nor made publicly-accessible outside of a protected members-only area on the Distributor’s website. This includes resale or distribution via a plugin, or on DVDs, CDs, etc.
On how many sites can I use the videos?
Our Standard and White-Label licenses provide for the display of the WP101 videos on one (1) website or domain. Additional domains may be added to your license at a 50% discounted rate. The Fully-Branded License is unrestricted, meaning you can use the videos on as many sites as you like!
Can I charge for access to the videos?
Absolutely! Many folks choose to do this, in order to recoup the cost of the license. While we do not prohibit you charging for access to the videos on your own site, please understand that this does NOT permit you to build a membership site like this one for the sole purpose of providing WordPress education or tutorials. You may not use our videos to directly compete with this site. It’s just common courtesy, really.
How often do you re-record updates?
Typically, WordPress releases 2-3 major updates per year. Since 2008, I’ve updated and re-recorded the WP101 tutorial videos with every major WordPress update. I’ll continue to do so as new versions and features of WordPress warrant, and if you purchased a license anytime within the previous 12 months, you’ll receive an invitation to download the latest videos as soon as they are released.
Can I renew at a discount?
Yes! You can choose to extend your license after 12 months at a 50% discount! We’ll email you a reminder when your current license is nearing expiration, and extend an invitation to renew at a heavily discounted rate.
