    What is the difference between these two address other than files.ch9 serving at ~800KB/s and media.ch9 serving at ~70KB/s? Both are where I'm trying to download the videos.

    @N2Cheval: They both go through the same CDN, so there *shouldn't* be any difference in performance. You should be hitting the same nodes in both cases.

    Also just trying to download the 3 of 3 Yuri lecture now and the media.ch9 does not support download resuming but the files.ch9 does?!?

    My ping time doesn't look that bad. Right now I'm trying the Hansel back Stage from Media but only getting 101KB/s no resume which is faster than usual.
