Warzone Video Download

Whenever I go to download the video files for Warzone, it's so slow! It took over a hour for the high quality video to download, while Java Portable takes about 30 seconds! It always starts fast, but then the download speed slows down.

What's wrong with the files? And why does the installer need to download them instead of being packaged with the installer itself?

Legal Issues?

Well I think there are legal issues that prevent the video being distributed with the game, since it was formerly a fully commercial game. It wasn't all that long ago that the open source project wasn't allowed to distribute the original videos at all!

I've never bothered to try to download them. If the are slow to download then it's the server hosting them that is slow so there isn't much you can do about it. Either that or approximately five bazillion people are attempting to download the videos at the same time (but I think this is unlikely).

You could try searching for torrents of the videos, might be quicker to download them that way.
