hey, yes this is fantastic! Although any chance you could have a go at compressing the files to see if you could get them to below 16 MB to attach them here? Or else compressing then splitting them? Because unfortunately media fire files won't be there forever

I can compress it to one-third, with slight loss of quality. Still would have to split the average file into 3 parts, so too much work for me, but someone else knows better how to do it maybe. I admit it doesn't look pretty to have all these links to Mediafire, but I understand their policy is that files are not taken down without checking for the uploader's permission several times.
