As a new beginner, I was amazed and thankful for all of the free youtube trick tutorials, but after a while, I got impatient with waiting for videos to load. Also, I like watching different tutorials for the same trick, and found that having tons of browser tabs open and navigating through different sites wasn’t exactly the best user experience. So I put my nerd hat on and with some Firefox extension magic, downloaded every single 1A video tutorial from the major “professionally done” tutorial providers. Poof - no more load times and tying up bandwidth, and now I can load up my iPhone and iPad with videos for offline enjoyment. Now I can learn new tricks on international flights and in the heart of the Amazon rainforest (power supply permitting)!
Anyways, I thought many of you would also find this useful, so I’ve hosted the files on my Google account and made them publicly available so you could download any and all videos to your heart’s content. I figured since all of the videos are freely available on youtube, democratizing the files in this manner wouldn’t be grossly unethical. The only possible issue I could think of would be possible ad revenue loss from youtube, but I doubt this would be significant. If you’re concerned about this, just disregard this post and continue learning through youtube. However, if you’re the owner/creator of any of these videos and you’d like me to take them down, I’d be more than happy to oblige - just shoot me a PM.

A thousand thanks to the following people and websites for spreading the love and taking the time and energy to produce these tutorial videos for the public! I know I must be missing people, so if you know someone that’s left out, let me know and I’ll update the list.

 :!: A Google account is not required to download the videos, however, logging into a Google account and using the Google interface to download the videos is much easier. If you are not logged into a Google account, you must download each file individually - you cannot download entire folders or multiple videos at the same time.
 :!: If you do not have a Google account, or do not wish to create one (strongly suggested), I have created a dummy account you can use to make downloading easier. For you non-Googler’s out there, use these credentials:

Videos are arranged according to creator and trick difficulty level.
I have tried to rename tricks to make organizing/indexing easier, so some trick names may be different from what appears on youtube. (i.e. making sure all filenames for the same trick are the same)
If a video has “(+)” attached to the filename, this means there are other tutorials for the same trick from other creators.
All videos are in the highest resolution available.
All videos are iPhone/iPod/iPad compatible - no conversion necessary.
For iPhone/iPod/iPad users: managing/viewing a lot of videos on Apple devices is still rather clunky using the native applications. The best third-party solution I have found is GoodReader, and has many other useful functions. It’s currently $4.99 from the Apple app store. I had already purchased this app, so haven’t spent much time looking for free alternatives. If you find a better alternative, free or otherwise, post it here and I’ll update the post.
Total file size for all videos: 8.52 gb[/list]
If you have any questions or concerns, just shoot me a PM or post to this thread, and I’ll try getting back to you soon. If it’s troubleshooting related, please try posting to the thread in case others have the same issue.
