Downloadable Parkour/Freerunning Videos
« on: June 05, 2009, 03:29:55 PM »
Here's the deal: this summer I'm working in a surf/skate shop by the beach. In the skate shop there is a wide screen TV that plays skateboarding/surfing/snowboarding videos all day. My boss agreed to let me show a parkour video or two as long as I provide a disc.

My question to everyone is, where can I find decent parkour videos available for download, that I can then burn to a blank DVD? I can't play any sound while the video is on so I have to go for maximum visuals, much like the montages used in skate videos. I have Project: Pilgrimage but, unfortunately, without sound it just doesn't seem like it would work.

I can piece together several videos so length isn't an issue. I just need downloads links and the such, if anyone has or knows of any. (And I'm not very computer literate so downloading off youtube, then converting, then whatever, is a tall order for me. mpegs, wmas, actual video files would be preferred.)

No, but I'm on nyparkour.com, my name there is Sky. Maybe that might help.
And thanks Graham for the links, most appreciated.

Looks like Teghead's videos are un-gettable because the domain name expired May 30th. And kosovaparkour, where's the download link? I only see the youtube page w/ the video.

Oh true. Get a vimeo account and search for Parkour videos on there. Unless I'm mistaken there's a download link on all videos, as long as you have an account.  Here's my video channel, feel free to download and use any of them. There's some cool shots in the Philly Parkour video, the Stillness in Motion video, and also the Winter Training video.

Much thanks again all around. The vimeo idea was great; now I almost have too many options haha. I did realize that in order to burn a DVD on my Windows operating system, I had to convert the files from quicktime and the such to wmv or avi. Not a problem since I found a free converter, but now the quality is diminished. Still good, but not the eye popping HD of the originals.
