Why are the lectures in .zip file format?
We first started offering digital downloads in the early 2000s, when CD format was still the dominant medium. JCF responded to the tech requirements of the day and released each lecture split up into shorter “tracks” to reflect the standard album format. The .zip file is the best way to transfer and download a package of audio files over the internet.
We recognize that the current user experience of downloading .zip files is not ideal. We are currently working to stay up to date with standard practices and technology, exploring new formats that makes the user experience as easy as possible. We appreciate your patience in allowing us to adapt to your needs.
