Video files:

These .avi videos were made from the DVDs offered for sale in the media sales section of this website.
 They have been tested by a few people using the Windows Media Player (WMP) and Nero's video viewing app.
Mac and Linux users can find .avi players readily available for their systems.
A fast internet connection is necessary to 'stream' video from the website.
If you don't have a fast internet connection then you can download them (use "save link as" type command) at dial up speed
 and later view them from your computer.

As of June 2012 these videos  are available on our Youtube account in higher resolution and with audio. Youtube has the ability
to "stream" (ie watch in real time) vs having to download a film and watch it on your computer.
 There are utilities available on the web to capture Youtube videos and store them on your personal computer if desired.
(Youtube videos are .flv "Flash" format)



"Clips from Sun Seed" - A large number of short clips taken from the film "Sun Seed". This material was professionally recorded in the early 1970s (possibly after a World Fellowship of Religions Conference) during the construction of the Manav Kendra at Dehra Dun. Most of the material has synchronized audio although there are a few film clips with no accompanying sound track, a few audio tracks with no images, and short periods of film leader, etc. Converted  from a VHS recording, (only a main menu and some chapter marks have been added not in .avi file ). Approximately 17 1/2 minutes. The .avi file is 48 MB.

"India - Early 1974" - This is not new material and it has appeared elsewhere in other forms. The collected short film clips were shot around the time period of the Unity of Man Conference (Feb. 1974) and include images from the conference, Sawan Ashram, Manav Kendra and a couple of other outings. It was added to our collection due to the better than average quality of the conversion to DVD. (A main menu and several "chapters" have been added.) The talk "Man! Know Thyself" was used for the audio track although the entire talk is not on the DVD.  Original film clips are courtesy of Lorinda Bloch.  Approximately 50 minutes.  The .avi file is 187 MB.

Comments on the Windows Media Player:  although the size of these video frames is relatively small (typically under 300 pixels wide) you can enlarge the video in a couple of ways. First, if you change screen resolution on your monitor to a lower resolution such as 800x600 then the apparent size of the video increases. A free useful utility which can change screen resolution "on the fly" is Multires which can be downloaded at http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/multires.shtm. The WMP will also resize the display if you "drag" a corner to make the player's window larger or if you click the player's maximize button. Current versions of the media player offer a 200% (2x larger) option.


Please send feedback if you have any questions, problems or comments regarding these files. The rest of the DVD collection will be added as time allows.
