Why we cannot download videos? I've an iPad which cannot play these, and I would like to download them and convert to appropriate formats to take with my iPad, or mobile phone.
MIT videos are ready to play everywhere and I find this feature very usefull. I'm looking these lectures usually on the way, when I have idle time. You have one of the largest collection so please make them downloadable.
