itunes feed is broken or just crappy?

how come only the first video which is 30 seconds has a link to the itunes feed and the rest of the videos don't have a button for the itunes feed.

Putting that question aside, why in the name of Great Spirit would anyone think it would make sense to have to download these courses one 30sec to 10 minute video at a time instead of just being able to get the whole course with one click.

Or am i just totally confused.

No dude, I totally agree. the Itunes feed is bogus. I thought I was missing something when it was only downloading the first video instead of the whole project.. What good is that? Apparently the old Itunes feed had all 716 videos but they took it down. Truth be told, I think they have the RS feed broken on purpose. They're probably worried people will buy a one month subscription and download EVERY video and then dip out. HOWEVER, their are plenty of people who want to be able to view the videos without an internet connection. Please fix this Teamreehouse.

Hey folks, this is news to me! I'm pinging support on this. This definitely isn't on purpose that I know of. Oddly some folks have requested downloads in sections and bits and pieces. I'd be all for zipping up in one file and might do just that in the future.

Much appreciated Zac. Thanks for being active in the forums as well.

Any update on this? I have a bunch of classes I downloaded months ago and completed, and now I'm looking to start new tracks. I couldn't find anything but the first intro video to download.

Zac Gordon, is there any status update on this from 2 months ago?

On a related note, if there's a good way to package any downloadable files related to the videos that would be great. I was on vacation and after a few videos the presenter started referencing a new download file, not a derivative of the first file downloaded from video 1 in the set. This took me by surprise, and I had to wait for another time when I could access the internet to get the file.

Hi, Adam: I logged on to start a new course and ran into "Oh, this again"*

It looks like the best way is to download the one episode, and then after it finishes, right click on that podcast and look for the "Download All" option. I got this information from the many threads that have popped up about this recently, thankfully.

*The instruction should be right there at the download button. It's very not apparent what you're supposed to do, so if Treehouse could help out with that it'd be wonderful - iTunes' interface is bad enough!
