Change verbiage of the 'Download podcast" option

'Podcast" is not an accurate representation of the .mp4 file that is downloaded. It has caused confusion for some of the faculty at my institution. Changing the name to something more representative of the file like "download video" or even "download .mp4" would be better

  • How about download vodcast? ;)

    Just kidding!!! That's another term that should be retired. Or we could do what Rick Rubin did when he had a funeral for the word Def.

  • Yes! Download video makes much more sense. Or Download Audio makes much more sense.

    Few correlate "podcast" with an mp4.

  • +1 for more simple "Download Video File" and "Download Audio File" buttons. An easier to understand way to download alternate angles would also be appreciated.

  • I also agree. Good idea!
