Looks like there is a partial solution to the Purple woes that some are having.
We will strip out the DRM tags of all the videos - I was not aware this was possible.
I will post again when the DRM is gone.
This will allow the files to be played on most any media player. The challenge for some will be finding them...
Another non-fan of the whole purple / leaping brain evolution. These are goofy names that add nothing to the LuLa brand, and the download / player model seems very clunky compared to what I was expecting, having purchased numerous LuLa products over the years.
I downloaded the LR5 videos this past Wednesday 25 (yes on Christmas). The first file will play in QuickTime, the rest will not.
This makes it quite awkward to purchase & download the videos on computer A, then transfer the files to my NAS for playback on computer B or C, which has worked well for all my other videos, LuLa and others. Instead I ended up downloading all of them again on computer B, not a very good work-around.
With all due respect to the issues you were addressing I think the outcome here with regard to video distribution / licensing / etc. is quite poor and certainly not worthy of the quality of the video content and production and definitely not of the LuLa brand.
Hoping for something better, and at this point your idea to remove the DRM would be a step in the right direction.
