      AFAIK you can't download the videos - they are left as streamed to encourage members to maintain their status to watch them... I'm techno illiterate though so maybe there is a way.

      Hey KingKruger,

      You can't download the videos to your computer. You can only stream them via the website. The main reason PokerStrategy don't allow downloads is because then they can just be distributed to people who are not members or who are not the required level. They could implement DRM onto videos like other sites do using http://www.ezdrm.com/. It is probably quite easily to implement.

      Of course you can. It's very easy to do.

      Of course it is possible, but it is not endorsed by PokerStrategy for reasons mentioned earlier ITT. We are not allowed to discuss methods on the forum.
