It could look like the file t2e_202.zip (Australia - Arnhemland & the Kimberley) is damaged, I have now downloaded the file two times and every time it's reported as a damaged zip file.

My apologies. Yes, the zip file is definitely corrupted. I am uploading a replacement which should be in place around 24:00 ET Friday, Oct. 22

Hello,

having bought the Season 1 of Travels to the Edge when I was in the US, I purchased the first episode of Season II from Lu La (since buying the dvds is not really an option considering the Art Wolfe shop would only ship via ups...). Now, being about ignorant as far as video is concerned, I have no clue what I should do to get the video playable by my DVD player (an LG BD350). I tried to just burn the Quicktime movie onto a blank DVD but it didn't work. I found a nice little software (ConvertXtoDVD) that converted the file into a DVD format. It worked fine except that, because it was a trial version, I had a big watermark in the middle of the screen. Frankly, I'm reluctant to pay $35 for the full version, knowing I will probably never use it again (and I think the $99 for 13 episodes is hefty enough).

Would you happen to know any freeware that would convert the video into a readable format ? I'm cutting and pasting the section about formats from the technical specificities for my DVd player : DivX 3.x DivX 4.x DivX 5.x DivX 6 XviD H.264 MPEG2 MPEG2 HD H.264/AVC VC-1 AVCHD

Many thanks for your help !

I am not familiar with Windows freeware, but check the FAQ for a bit of info...

And please remember that these videos are far better viewed through a set-top box or on your monitor rather than re-converting to a DVD: sooo 20th century  ;D

If you have to watch via a DVD you are much better off (at least in terms of quality) buying the DVDs from Art's online store or through PBS

Thanks Chris. I had missed the FAQs. I'll check if I could find some freewares in there.

DVDs may indeed by very much 20th century but I'm afraid I don't have an Apple TV and my TV screen being about 4 times larger than my PC screen, it's a lot more comfortable.

As for the DVDs, I honestly would have bought them if the Art Wolfe store was a bit smarter and could ship DVDs internationally using something else than UPS. Paying $220 for the dvds + shipment is just not an option. I don't know if PBS is better but I can't find the Travels to the Edge dvds on their website.

The problem is this: when you re-compress video that is already fairly compressed, the results are usually pretty awful...

Hello,
I have just bought the India episode and really enjoyed it.A very good series to watch,however I felt a bit of buyer's remorse thinking.I paid 10 dollars for about 20mins of video compared to an equally excellent BBC documentory based on the story of india which runs for 180mins and costs 10 dollars for two dvds shipped, I have trouble justifying more episodes. Charging about 100 dollars for all epsides (approx. 260mins)  seems like a rip off when considering that this show has been broadcasted by many tv stations and is also sponsored by canon and Microsoft, so  production cost must have been paid by now, assuming a normal  run of business.
Regards,
Ali.

ahm, is this meant to be serious or are you being sarcastic? Nothing against copying my post,but your message would be clearer if you had found your own words.

Chris

Any chance of posting the "cover shots" for episodes 7-13 of Season 1. I like to would include them in iTunes, along with the images for rest of the videos that you have already posted.

If you go to the individual episode in the Store and click on 'larger image' under the graphic, you can save the artwork for each episode.
