moderated Off Topic: Extremely Slow Download Speed Using Pontes Media Downloader

Hello, everyone.

I have tried to download and save the following YouTube video review of the  NLS E-reader using Pontes Media Downloader, and am experiencing extremely slow download speeds.

 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLZa712e5mM

 

 

These very slow download speeds occur when I try to save the original video, when I try saving the video in an MP4 video format, and when I save it as an MP3 audio only file.

 

I’d like to save this video for future reference, so it is available when I hopefully receive my nLS E-reader in a few months.

 

 

I’m currently using Pontes Media Downloader version 2.5041.

 

I typically don’t experience such slow download speeds, so I don’t think the issue is with my internet service provider.

 

I wonder if others are having a similar issue with Pontes Media Downloader??

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi, Albert. It is a braille display which you can borrow from your local NLS regional library, if your state is cooperating with NLS to distribute the reader. It allows a patron of NLS BARD to download and read braille books from BARD. The files end in a .brf extension, specifying that they are in braille-ready format.

Albert:

 

Here’s another YouTube link that will give you more info:

Basically, as I understand it, the NLS E-reader is a Braille display that is gradually being made available to anyone who currently is registered with the NLS/BARD service.

 

They are being distributed by state, and we hope to get ours in Michigan by the end of the year.
