So what’s this about fast and slow? There are two speeds of video And within the slow category, two qualities. Slow These are shot at walking speed, so a fifteen mile walk really does last for more than five hours. Where else can you get five hour videos in which nothing happens, slowly? They are available for download in two qualities: 1. 384_movies are compressed at a bit rate of 384Kb/s 2. 1.25_movies are compressed at 1.25Mb/s There is an improvement in quality at 1.25, at the cost of a larger (between 3 and 4 times larger) download. Neither form is by any means HD. If you want an attempt to explain why, click here. Fast These give you the view you might expect if you drove the route at something like motorway speed. They are higher quality at a download size similar to the 384_movies, but last only 6-12 minutes. Because of the rate and degree of change between frames, these can stress the graphics capabilities of some older devices and they may struggle to keep up. You didn’t rescue your hardware from a skip? Then you’ll probably be fine.

Fast and slow?
There are two speeds of video and, within the slow category, two qualities. Slow These are shot at walking speed, so a fifteen mile walk really does last for more than five hours. Where else can you get five hour videos in which nothing happens, slowly? There are two qualities: 384_movies are compressed at a bit rate of 384Kb/s 1.25_movies are compressed at 1.25Mb/s There is an improvement of quality at 1.25, at the cost of a larger (3 to 4 times larger) download. Neither form is by any means HD. If you would like an attempt to explain:  
Fast These videos give you the view you might expect if you drove through the route at something like motor- way speed. They are higher quality at a similar download size to the 384 version, but last only 6-12 minutes. Because of the rate and degree of change from frame to frame, these can stress the graphics capabilities of some older devices and they may struggle to keep up. We are talking seriously old though - the kind of stuff we use.

A Warning As you may be viewing this on a phone and you may well be on a plan with limited data, please be aware that the videos included in the bundle for each route are large downloads. The size of the downloads can be viewed in a pop- up for each route. If you choose to purchase using your phone, it would still be better to download just the maps and wait until you are at home, with a laptop or desktop and a reliable, unlimited connection, to do the rest. You do have 7 days and 3 attempts at each download. Alternatively, you can purchase all of the maps for each area in one bundle (about 50MB). Scroll down to the bottom of the walks listing for this option.
