Watch our videos on multiple devices! • Now with two options to stream!
HeidiSongs has partnered with Vimeo and VHX to offer you streaming, on-demand videos of many of our DVD's. Both of these platforms bring you unlimited, easy viewing to all of your devices, anytime you have a connection. But both have strengths and benefits over each other, outlined here:
Vimeo - Most of our videos are available on this platform, with 12 month rentals and apps for all types of devices, it's the easiest way to stream. But Vimeo only streams the whole movie, start to finish, so finding individual songs can be a challenge. The Vimeo player works like all other media players, so you will have to scroll along the timeline to find the song you want and an easy replay of the song is not an option. This may not matter to you, as we've had wonderful feedback from our Vimeo customers, and it's available worldwide so a whole new audience has been able to appreciate Heidi's songs!
VHX - We're currently offering the entire Sing & Spell collection on VHX, all 164 songs in the classic format, as a monthly and annual subscription. VHX features easy access to individual songs, and offers video playlists of all varieties. Pick and choose from the Alphabetical list, or jump to the Fry or Dolch lists with a click of the mouse. Want a custom list specific to your school or district? We can build you one for a nominal fee, so teachers across you district can easily access the songs they need. We also offer a 14 day free trial to see how easily this interface works, so be sure to check it out to see if it meets your needs. We'll be offering more options with VHX in the future, so watch Heidi's blog for those announcements.
We've built a quick reference chart for easy comparison here.
With either of these two options, you'll still need a fairly fast internet connection, an up-to-date browser on your computer, or a playback app for your individual device. Apps can be found here: Vimeo Device Apps - VHX Device Apps
It's always important to test your device before you make your rental purchase through Vimeo, or use the Free VHX 14-Day Trial, as we don't have the ability to refund purchases if your device is unsupported or if you have a poor internet connection. Heidi discovered this when she tried to use the videos on her school computer, only to realize the Window's Internet Explorer browser was outdated, and she had to call the district for an update. An easy test is to verify that the movie "trailer" plays well on your device or computer, if it does, you should not have a problem with purchasing a movie.
