This is the second of four films I made about a winter I spent on the Fal - that was just after buying Lily M and before moving her to scotland.
Holy smokes! I managed to download West Country Rivers 1, the link got me to a page where I chose the resolution and everything worked fine. When I tried to do the same thing for 2,3 and 4 Paypal took my money (I think) but I never saw a page on which to choose the resolution, never got a download and am wondering why. Any clue? I assume I am clicking the right page button.
Hope the 3 bucks got to you all right; I Don’t mind, the price you put on these things is too low anyway. Only 3 bucks but I hate to see it scooped up by Paypal or ???
you can download from the vimeo page, click the vimeo link on the film frame embedded in the page – then it will offer you a download in whatever scale you waqnt. If you need to refind the page you payed for and visited that will be in your history
thanks for the dollars – into the warm boat fund it goes
PS – no quibble refund at any time
Still no luck. The Vimeo page offers only low resolution. Have tried with several servers, Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome, and now 3 computers. Hmmm. . .
thanks for your perseverance
this is the link to the free film page
upon doing the dollar thing you should be offered the link to this page
on it will the vimeo frame
click on the bottom right vimeo logo and it will open this page
that should play full screen
there is also a download button beside the share button
that will offer you six different scales of film to choose to download
not as easy as youtube for either of us … but google ate all the pies
at least vimeo is cheaper than DVDs and less faff
Thanks and please forgive my confusion. I believe the problem for me was that I tried to download several (2,3 &4) all at the same time. Was not then transferred back to video page to choose the resolution. I just now successfully downloaded -2 going thru the procedure as you describe and found after I completed the Paypal transaction that I was directed back to the Vimeo page with the full range of resolutions available. Note here that I too am an old bloke, many years older than you, but really without an excuse for this mistake since I spent much of my productive life working with computers. In any case, hope this note helps anyone who might have a similar problem. Fair winds
ah but Hank,, the computers we struggled with were a different kettle of fish – do you remember SCSI and jumpers –
my first gigabyte cost me £700.
The weird thing is that as the hardware has got siimpler the software has become ever more capricious
my daughter now works in UX … user experience…..my website makes her groan about usability but she is also astonished at people are prepared to invest their time in navigating this truly terrible website – and then end up paying for digits –
Thanks for the comment. I too have struggled with earlier versions and hence cannot quite understand others who seem to think what we have now is cumbersome. I like this method of ‘paying for digits;’ much easier than trying to remember when I last made a contribution and if it was enough. Keep up the good work.
I’d like to view this and email it as a gift. How would I do this and how much do you suggest I pay in £gbp?Thanks
just send him a link to the film you paid for – anyone can do that – sofeel free to pass on any of the films you have chipped in for. I do not intend to change the links to make them out of date….. or…. you can open the film in vimeo and download a copy, put it on a memory stick and post it to him.
PS – this is sort of working – the films are earning about $5 a day – not each but for the whole website. It will be interesting to see what happens this winter. All payments go towards a warm boat for scotland
Thanks, my Cornish friend will like the film, one of your best in my opinion. I’ve noticed people from Cornwall seem to have a special regard for Fowey. I bought a Memory 19 which is in Goole at present while I work out how to set it up for sailing in the Humber. I may get an extra row of reef points put in the mainsail and am even wondering if I could jury rig the topsail as a trisail if need be? Can’t see myself using it much otherwise. I’ll probably be singlehanded as often as not so I’d like to be able to reduce the sail area pretty drastically if need be. Mindful of your remarks per the film about sails which won’t set properly, as well as the caveats of people with experience of sailing these boats which some say are a bit overcanvassed, Whatever, I’m chuffed to have got this one. Be nice to get going when we get the green light to travel. MP
