Do the videos have a way of being in any lower resolution? I have a slow internet connection.

I have a slow internet connection that won't play the videos right, are these available in lower resolution?

Below the lecture video frame, there's a Download tab, You can download the Standard definition MP4 to your local computer and watch it with or without the internet connection.

Hi Leah. Welcome to Treehouse

Unfortunately, there is not a way to lower the resolution to watch the videos. Sorry.

To clarify William's response, you do need to have the Pro Subscription plan in order to view videos offline (and you must be off the Free-Trial). I see you have only the Basic plan and are still on the Free-Trial, so you will no be able to download videos.
The videos you watch online are already in Standard Definition, so I'm not sure if being able to download the videos, which would require you to upgrade your subscription, would be of any difference for you.

One hint I can offer... if you start the video, then hit pause for a few minutes to allow the video to buffer a bit more, this should help with the start and stop effect while watching.

I hope it works out for you!

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
