Well, I could add another arbitrary number but the files are actually already numbered with the issue number and where a video is split into two or more files, they are named '1of2' '2of2'.

There is no strict order in which the files should be viewed - excepting something like the Camera To Print tutorial where again the files are sequentially numbered...

If the files are so large that you need 15 - 24 files of 200 - 400MB each, you definitely have to improve the download speed.

I Live in Edmonton, AB and have never had a connection with your download server that was faster than 40kB/s . I have a cable modem connection that can go 10-times as fast.

Given the parameters of the choices (e.g. 15 files at 400MB each),  it appears there will be an impressive 6 GB of content, roughly.  At 300 kbps from the LLVJ server, that's about 44 hours to download it all.   A long time to expect no hitches in the network connection.

I got close to 600 kbps for the 2nd part of the Antarctica segment (a few days after the initial surge died down), just under an hour for the roughly 250 MB file.  That's still about 22 hours for the whole 6 GB.

I suggest that you size the base files to take at most 1.5 - 2 hours to download at the maximum speed you think your server can reasonably attain per connection.  Then even if someone gets only half that, a single file can still be downloaded in an evening.  Adding some zip containers with multiple segments for those who want them shouldn't be hard.

I've found it fairly easy to track what I've downloaded through the ZenCart interface, so far, though once the number of files gets into the serious double-digits, it would be harder.
