If you find the streaming version (Standard Definition) difficult to see, there is an option to download a HD version in the downloads section of each video, hope that helps!!
Hi Magnus, the HD version is very easy to read.
Type this after the video URL
and you get to the hd version. is MUCH less blurry!
If I did not have this URL, I would not be able to join treehouse because the videos are VERY blurry in standard.
Thank you. I do not see the Download section on the video pages, It only has the transcript and a couple more options.

I agree that the video quality is not good. I have a normal laptop screen and I find myself having to toggle full screen on and off, to be able to read anything and then jump between tabs to the code editor.
I wish the video would zoom to the relevant part of the code we are working on. This would solve the legibility problem for this, and many other Treehouse videos.. The production of the videos is otherwise excellent but this one thing spoils some of the experience for me, and I suppose for others too.

If on a mac, you can set (Display Contrast) to normal in (System Preferences, Accessibility. Display). Not perfect but it helps!

Yeah I found difficulty in seeing good this video too. Additionally its kind of Blury the letter are too small on source code.
I just wonder why this video aren't like any others like for ex. Nick's Pettit videos ?

Yeah thank you man but I still have an kind of impression that this solution could be suitable and acceptable something like 15 years ago when if you wanted for example install something you had to download installation file, 3 additional external libraries and HowTo pdf installation file | ReadMe.txt file. And you never had 100% chance it will work well.
I might little egsagerating but my point is just KISS paragdim in which I see this interface like I make max 2 mouse click and I get what I want without reading anything or copying && pasting anything.
I know it is just minor temporary bug on Treehouse Platform :-) which I consider the best of all platform from which I learned so far :-).
Sure, no problem.
Just wanted to share something that helped me see the code better.
Hopefully they will make a change soon.
