Download Digital Kits

How do I access and download my files?

For a visual demonstration, please check out this video.

here should I save my files?

You can save your files wherever you choose on your computer.

Your internet browser will save your files in a default location unless you choose to do otherwise.

The location of your downloaded file will depend on your browser type. Most browsers have a default download location. On a Mac, it is usually the "Downloads" folder you see in your Finder window.

Here is a simple guide to what to look for, based on your browser type:

Our music files are packaged together with a PDF file of the release notes into a single ZIP file. That ZIP file is usually between 150MB and 200MB. The video for the release is usually a single file of approximately 700MB.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not delete files you have previously downloaded from the Digital Kit Portal. Deleting past downloads could mean you will lose access to those files completely and you might have to purchase them again.

  • For Internet Explorer 8 or later: Your browser will usually ask you if you want to open or save the file you've clicked on. Clicking "Open" will download it to whichever folder you have as your default download folder. In most Windows PCs, that is the "Downloads" folder within "My Documents". In Internet Explorer 9, click CTRL+J or select the Tool menu > View Downloads to see your download progress.
  • For Firefox: If you have not installed any download manager, a window will pop up and ask you to choose what to do with a file. By default, it will download it and open the folder the file was downloaded to. Clicking "Save File" will download it directly to your default download folder.
  • For Chrome: Clicking on the button should start downloading the file automatically. Check the bottom of your browser window to see download progress. Once finished, file should appear in your default download folder.
  • For Safari: A window will pop up asking you if want to open or save the file. Either will download the file to your default download folder.

I’ve downloaded the files and now I can’t find them, where are they?

Most browsers have a default download location. On a PC, this is usually the "Downloads" folder inside the "My Documents" folder. On a Mac, it is usually the "Downloads" folder you see in your Finder window.

Check this folder and double-click the file name. If the file starts playing, then the download has finished successfully.

If you cannot find the file in these folders, try searching for the file name.

One or more download buttons are greyed out, what do I do?

Once you have downloaded a file, the button to download the file again will become greyed out and unavailable for you to select.

In the event that your file download fails, refresh the screen. Next to the greyed out button you will see the option "Had issues downloading?" - select this to download the release.

How long will my digital kit take to download to my computer?

The time taken for a digital kit to download depends on several factors, including the speed of your internet connection. Apple provide some guidance at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1577.

How do I know when a file has finished downloading?

Check your browser to see if a file has finished downloading. Most browsers will show you a pop-up window that displays the percentage of the file downloaded and the estimated download time remaining.

Most browsers have a default download location. On a PC, this is usually the "Downloads" folder inside the "My Documents" folder. On a Mac, it is usually the "Downloads" folder you see in your Finder window.

Check this folder and double click the file name. If the file starts playing, then the download has finished successfully.

The file is taking a very long time to download - why?

When you buy a kit for download from the Digital Kit Portal, the amount of time it takes to download will vary according to the file's size and your internet connection speed. A broadband connection is highly recommended for downloading files from the Digital Kit Portal.

Our music files are packaged together with a PDF file of the release notes into a single ZIP file. That ZIP file is usually between 150MB and 200MB. The video for the release is usually a single file of approximately 700MB. Most broadband connections should be able to download those files in less than one hour. However, it is possible that it could take longer depending on the speed of your connection, how close you are to our download servers, your own computer's capabilities, and other factors.

If you feel that the file download is taking significantly longer than it should, we suggest stopping the download and trying it again. However, please be aware that a download may take more than one hour.

If you do not have a broadband connection, you can still download files from the Digital Kit Portal, but be advised that the downloads could take anywhere from several hours to more than a day.

My file download failed. What do I do?

In the event your file download has failed, you can re-download the kit by following these steps:

  1. Log in to the Digital Kit Portal
  2. Go to "My Downloads"
  3. Select the relevant program and release
  4. Select the option "Had issues downloading?" If you don't see this select Ctrl + F5.
  5. Follow the directions there to re-download the kit.
  6. IMPORTANT NOTE: You will have a limited number of attempts to download the file. In the event you continue to have problems please contact contact our customer service team viaemail or call +61 2 6282 8192. Can I download parts of the digital kit separately?
    Yes. Each digital kit is delivered in two parts; the video file is in one part, and the music and choreography notes are in the other.
    You can download these on separate days as long as it is within 180 days from the date you are notified by LMAP that your release is available for download

Can I see a list of all the digital kits I've downloaded?

Yes. You can view your download history by selecting the "Download History" option from the menu in the top right hand corner of your screen.

Where are my digital kits stored after I download them?

Your internet browser will save your files in a default location unless you choose to do otherwise.

The location of your downloaded file will depend on your browser type. Most browsers have a default download location. On a Mac, it is usually the "Downloads" folder you see in your Finder window.

Here is a simple guide to what to look for, based on your browser type:

  1. For Internet Explorer 8 or later: Your browser will usually ask you if you want to open or save the file you've clicked on.

Do I need to download the files within a certain period of time?

Yes. You have 180 days to download your order from the date you are notified that your release is available for download.

How long will a digital kit be available for download?

You have 180 days to download your order from the date you are notified that your release is available for download.

Where are the choreography notes?

The choreography notes can be found with the music files.

When you download the music file from the Digital Kit Portal you will receive a ZIP folder which includes the music tracks and the choreography notes in PDF format.

Can I download parts of the digital kit separately?

Yes. Each digital kit is delivered in two parts; the video file is in one part, and the music and choreography notes are in the other.

You can download these on separate days as long as it is within 180 days from the date you are notified by LMAP that your release is available for download.

Why do I need to download the video and music separately?

The video and music files are available as separate downloads to make the file sizes more manageable.

My computer says it does not have sufficient disk space to download the files, what should I do?

Computer hard drives are getting bigger and bigger, and sometimes it may seem as if you have all the space you need. But over time, any user can build up quite a library of files and run out of space.

Unfortunately, there are very few solutions to this problem that do not require deleting files on your hard drive. Before you take that step, we suggest you do the following:

There are programs available that will help you clear more space on your hard drive, but if none of the steps suggested above provide you with enough space, then you will probably have to delete some files on your hard drive. To do this you will need to either delete some files directly or remove some programs. Remember to empty the trash or recycle bin after you delete the files.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not delete any files you have previously downloaded from the Digital Kit Portal. Deleting past downloads could mean you will lose access to those files completely and you might have to purchase them again.

  1. Empty the "Trash" (Mac) or "Recycle Bin" (Windows). Files left in the trash or recycle bin are still part of your hard drive and deleting them from the trash or recycle bin will open up more space for you.
  2. In Windows, click on the Start Menu and under your program folders select Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup. This will run a simple utility to help you clear space on your hard drive.
  3. Empty the cache in whichever browser you are using. Your cache will not usually take up a large amount of hard drive space, but clearing it will at least give you a bit more.
  4. You can directly download to an external hard drive or USB thumb drive.

Can I download a digital kit directly to a mobile device such as an iPod/iPhone/Android device?

No - this option is not currently available.

What kind of portable devices can I play my digital kit music and video on?

Your digital kit music will be provided in MP3 format with a bit rate of 320kbps.

MP3 files will play on nearly all portable media devices, including iPod, iPhone, Zune, Sansa, Creative, Archos, Samsung, Sony and more. Many of the newer cell phones also have MP3 capabilities, including Android devices.

If in doubt, please check your device's specifications for a full list of file types that it can and can't play.

What kind of computer do I need in order to download the digital kits?

How do I back up my music and/or videos?

You can back up your music to a physical device (USB key, external hard drive or burn it to a DVD), another alternative could be backing up the data to an online cloud storage provider (such as Google Drive or Drop Box).

To see a tutorial video on backing up your digital kits, you can check out this video by clicking here. Please keep in mind this video covers the topic of backing up using a Apple Mac. The other option you have with a Mac is to activate an option called "Time Machine". In order to set this up, do the following:

  • Connect your external hard drive.
  • Click on the apple logo at the top left of the screen.
  • Click on "System Preferences".
  • Click on "Time Machine".
  • Click on the "Select Backup Disk" button and select the external hard drive.
  • Then click on the little switch that says "Off" and "On". It should, by default, be set to off but by clicking on it, you will enable it. If it pulls up a list of available drives, select the one that is your external. This will back up your entire computer as well as the digital kits.

 

However, to perform a backup of your digital kits in Windows, you can do this in a few ways. You can turn on File History in the Control Panel and select the external device you want to back up to. It can be other software like Acronis True Image or even software that came bundled with your external hard drive. You can also just drag and drop the files into your external hard drive by just using Windows Explorer. You just do the following:

  • Start Windows Explorer (by clicking the office folder icon at the bottom left.
  • Start another Windows Explorer again.
  • Place the first Windows Explorer window on the left half of the screen and the second Windows Explorer screen to the right half of the screen.
  • On the window to the right, just click on the external hard drive to prepare it.
  • On the Windows Explorer window on the left side, select your files and just drag and drop them onto the external drive on the right side.

How do I know the track listing?

Track lists will still be published in the choreography notes. This will be in a PDF file attached with the music in the ZIP file that you download.

What is a PDF?

How do I play my video to a TV from my iPhone/iPad/Android device?

To play to a TV using a wired connection, iPhone/iPad devices will need to a separate adapter with an HDMI output and an HDMI cable. You just plug one end of the cable into the HDMI port of the adapter and the other into the HDMI port of the TV. Turn on the TV and select the correct input for the port it is plugged in and make sure your iPad/iPhone is on as well. It should broadcast directly to the TV.

These adaptors can be found at local electronic stores like JB Hi-Fi or at the Apple website here:http://www.apple.com/shop/accessories/all-accessories/power-cables

For a video tutorial on hooking up an HDMI cable to an iPhone/iPad, see this video. To see a video tutorial on playing your videos using iPhone/iPad to Apple TV wirelessly, see this video.

To play the media via wireless, you can use AirPlay for Apple devices like iPad/iPhone or you can use Chromecast which works with Apple and Android devices.

 

The following Android devices can broadcast without a Chromecast, provided your TV supports wireless screencasting:

  • Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7 (2013), 10
  • Samsung Galaxy S4, S4 Google Play Edition, S5, S6, S6 Edge, Note 3, Note 10
  • HTC One M7, Google Play Edition
  • LG G4, G3, G2, G Pro 2

What if I want silence in between tracks to allow time to prepare my equipment?

To do this, you need to create a playlist in which you have your Les Mills music and a track with nothing but silence in between each track. To do this in iTunes, press Control + N to create a new playlist. Then in your music library, just drag and drop your music files into the newly created playlist. Then you insert your blank tracks in between each song where you need them. If you don't have any silent tracks, you can get some from the following website: http://www.mcelhearn.com/listen-different-adding-silence-to-your-itunes-and-ipod-playlists/

Once you have created your playlist, just drag and drop it into you mobile device in iTunes.

I have downloaded my music but it won' go into iTunes. Why?

If you have just downloaded your music, you can't just load it into iTunes directly as it is in a ZIP file. This is not a readable file type by iTunes. In order to be able to load it into iTunes, you need to extract the music files from the ZIP file before you can place it into iTunes. To do this, you just go to where your music ZIP file is located and if you are using a Windows machine, you just right-click on the file and hit "Extract" or "Extract all". The new box that pops up shows the current location to extract the files to (which will be, by default, your "Downloads" folder. Hit the "Browse" or "..." button to specify where you want the files to be placed. If you wish to keep it where it is or have specified where you want the files to go, then just click the "Extract" button. After that, just drag and drop the files from the newly created folder into iTunes.

If you are using a Mac, just go to the "Downloads" folder and double click on the ZIP file. This will extract the files. Go to the newly created folder with the music and just drag and drop the files into iTunes.

I dragged/dropped my music onto my device in iTunes but it doesn't do anything. Why?

There are a few reasons as to why this is. The first is if the "manually manage music/video" option is not ticked. If this is not ticked, then you will have to hit the sync button after doing the drag and drop to begin the transfer. If you wish to have this sync immediately when you drag and drop files, make sure the option is ticked and press "apply".

The other thing that may prevent it from transferring over to the phone is that if a song appears on the iPhone but is greyed out, it will prevent the entire sync from occurring. To check and see if this is the case, go to your music folder of your device using iTunes and see if a song is greyed out (the one you are trying to transfer). Also, verify if no progress is made on the transfer.

If nothing is happening when you perform a sync, then what you need to do is try to delete the greyed out song on the phone. If this doesn't work, restart the phone and try again. If you still can't get rid of it, you may have to do a factory restore of the phone to get rid of it by tapping on the "Setting" icon, then tap on "General", the tap on "Reset" and then "Erase All Content & Settings". Once this is done, make sure the phone is still connected to the computer and try to transfer the songs to the phone again in iTunes.

Why isn't digital cheaper than physical kits?

A vast majority of the digital kit cost is consumed with licensing the best music (this is actually more expensive with digital content), production of the highest quality video, choreography content and providing the technology platform to make all this work. The production of top quality material has always been the highest priority for Les Mills and it requires more investment to achieve this outcome.

Why can't I get PPCA and Original in the same kit?

They are two different kits, produced for two different and specific requirements. In order to produce PPCA free kits, LMAP engages LMI to produce the re-striped video audio and new music content. The kits are then sold individually to help recoup some, but not all these additional costs.

Why is original the same price as PPCA free?

Due to the high production costs mentioned above, it actually costs LMAP more per PPCA free kit than for an original kit (in most cases they are produced at a loss to LMAP).

How long will physical kits be available for?

Physical music kits will be available till Q1 2016.

When will I receive my kit if I do attend workshops?

Workshops will run over two weekends. Digital entitlements will be released globally on the Friday between the two workshop weekend. If a physical kit was ordered, it will be dispatched the following Tuesday. Please be aware that freight charges will apply.

Can I get any release as a digital kit?

Note that they do age off, original music will be sold on-line for 2 years maximum and PPCA free music will be sold on-line for 4 years maximum. Currently 1 year of PPCA free music is digitised and available on-line. This back catalogue will grow organically as new releases become available.

Why isn’t GRIT™ a combined kit?

The cost of each release for each program in the LES MILLs, GRIT™SERIES is the normal kit price that you pay. Even though you will be certified to teach all three programs your club/facility still needs to license an individual program in order for you to teach it i.e. in order to teach all three programs, your club/facility will need to license all three programs. If your club/facility does not license a particular stream you will not be able to teach it, including mixing in that particular stream.

Pre-release date

Instructors who have purchased music kits and who attend the quarterly Workshops will have the ability to download their purchased digital music kit on the pre-release date, which is the Friday after the first Workshop weekend but before the last Workshop weekend. Workshop dates and locations will alternate between the first weekend and the second weekend.

Release date

The quarterly music release date is the Tuesday following the last workshop date. Instructors who have only purchased music and have not attended Workshops will receive their music download kit on the release date.

Workshop rate

When you purchase your music with your Workshop ticket you will qualify to receive a reduced music rate.

Digital music expiry date

You will need to download your music kit within 180 days of receiving your notification. You will need to ensure you have downloaded the .zip file with the music, education and the choreography notes, as well as the video within this time frame or else it will expire. Ensure you save all your files to and external device (ie laptop, hard drive etc).

Back releases

You are able to purchase selected releases from previous quarters for both original and PPCA-Free music kits at any time for immediate download. See online store for available back releases, as this changes over time.

Why is there a different music dispatch date for Instructors who do not attend workshops?

Those people who commit to and attend Quarterly Workshops are offered the benefit of early music release as we currently offer; this is the middle Friday between Workshop weekends. Digital music entitlements will all be released on the same day for all Workshop attendees across the country. Quarterly Workshops will take place over 2 weekends and we will alternate locations through the quarters to ensure fairness in delivery post and pre Workshops respectively. A later digital / physical dispatch date for non-Workshop participants will take place the first Tuesday following the last workshop weekend. This was assessed to be the fairest, simplest and best way we can distribute the content to all instructors.

Why can't I collect my physical kit at the workshop?

This is the first phase in the switch to digital and we suggest that you embrace the change to digital and order digital to take advantage of no-postage costs. Given the date we need to work with for the release of Digital music entitlements we can not release physical content before that date, thus making the pick-up of physical kits at workshops impractical. Please remember that come the start of 2016 all kits need to be purchased digitally, so you will need to get prepared.
