OnePetro now allows videos to be purchased and streamed on the site. At this time, it is a small amount compared to the overall amount of articles delivered through OnePetro. However, we do expect the numbers of videos delivered through OnePetro to grow over time.
The videos are typically the PowerPoint presentations with audio provided by the authors of a paper. Currently, all of the videos placed on OnePetro are available for viewing with a OnePetro subscription. The videos can also be purchased individually.
You will know a content item is a video by the video icon found on both the search results page and content item detail page.
If you are accessing OnePetro through a subscription, you should be able to view the video from the content item page. Otherwise, you will need to add the item to your Shopping Cart. Once you have either confirmed purchased the item, you can view the video by either linking on the web link found on your purchase receipt and/or in your Purchase History found within My OnePetro.
You can roll your mouse over the bottom of the video screen and a Video Control Bar will highlight. Through the Video Control Bar, you can start and stop the video, increase the volume and make the video full screen.

The size of pdf documents in OnePetro varies widely. While some are small, as authors take advantage of improving technology to include more color graphics, figures, and photos in their papers, file size is generally increasing. While there are exceptions, most companies limit email attachments to a size of 1MB or even less. Many papers in OnePetro exceed this file size, so emailing papers is not practical. PDF is a pretty efficient file format, such that "zipping"them makes little difference in the file size (often 5% or less reduction infile size). So "zipping" will not reduce the file size enough to make email delivery practical. For now, OnePetro does not have a mechanism that would allow you to zip numerous papers into a single document before download (not to reduce size, just to reduce the number of downloads). We know that there is customer interest in this option and we will continue to investigate whether this is something that could potentially be offered in the future.
We recommend that if you are using Firefox as your browser choice that you fully download the paper to your device and then open with Adobe.
