How do videos work on OnePetro?  

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.
