Problems downloading / extracting zip files?
A common problem (empty zip files, etc.) is the local firewall (hardware / software). Check the settings and allow zip files being downloadable!
Also check your browser settings (security) if you still have problems.
I cannot see the "submit" button after i enter my login credentials!

Why don't I see the latest updates? (Proxy Servers)
The problem with proxy servers is that they store content to speed up download speed. This can be a be a problem on frequently updated sites like FEMJOY. You should surf without proxy servers because you might not get the latest updates otherwise.
To disable on Windows PC's:
click [Start] => [Control Panel] => [Connections] => [LAN settings] => [disable any checked feature] => [restart the computer]
Do not use spiders to dump the complete site. (no "leeching"!)
Automatic downloading the complete site or large parts of it reduces the server speed and negatively affects users' ability to surf the site.
Our server security system will block you if spidering is detected.
- First you have to download the complete video to your harddrive.
- Start iTunes. If you have an outdated version of iTunes installed or one without video support, upgrade to a newer one, we recommend the current version (iTunes 10.x) Download is available here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
- After that, you should see 6 items at the "Media-Library", Music, Movies, TV, Podcasts.... and so on. If you let iTunes manage the videos on your iPod you only have to "drag and drop" the downloaded video-file into the Movies-Section of your Media-Library. Click on that section afterwards, to proof if the video is there. Now press "Synchronize" and the video will be transferred onto your iPod. If you manage the iPod-videos on your own, you have different possibilities to get the video-file working. The easiest way is to "drag and drop" the downloaded video into the Movies-area in your "Devices"-section (Your iPod has to be already connected to your PC/Mac for this). Just to let you know, not all iPod's have the possibility for a video-playback with the default-firmware. iTunes let you update this firmware very easy at the "Devices"-section. Some iPod's are also not designed for video-playback (although they maybe have enough resolution and colors).
How do I watch the videos?
You need a movie viewer on your computer. You can choose between:
- Windows Media Player ( download here)
- Quicktime (download here)
- Choose the desired file format
- Windows PC: [right-click the link] => [choose "Save File As"]
Mac: [click while holding down the control button] => [coose "Download Link to Disk"]
- [choose the destination on your hard-drive] => [click "Save"]
- [open the video file with the appropriate movie player]
Why don't you offer other compression formats?
Windows Media and Quicktime provide the best quality for the smallest file sizes.
Why do file size and quality vary?
We are a multi photographer site with the greatest variation in models, styles and atmosphere. However, not every photographer has the same video gear. Compression and the resulting file size of videos are very much depending on the original material sent to us. So it can happen that a longer film is smaller in file size and of better quality than a shorter one.
