I found them.. well they are in FRENCH!  The english ones should be here somewhere…

I copies the ending from the english page, seems that the ones in english have _dta however for the first video with audio all I got was a 13k file but it had text of video codecs but the french version is 3+ megs.

This will provide the videos even if the speech is french.

118 Video files

DownTHemAll! for Firefox is my friend

***** IGNORE THIS **********
yeah even the online links are no go

http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/artzone/pub/tutorials/hexagon/hexvt_english

we should submit a bug.  I might have the files backed up on CD but I will have to do some digging.  I downloaded them all at one point because it was in one big archive and you put it in the folder with the PDF and they played by clicking

** EDIT EASIER WAY NEXT POST **

Woot copy the _dta version of the file you had download by coping link and adding the _dta (or the matching link from the above post) and if you play on actual quick time player, not VLC then apparently the _dta has a reference to the video in the other file but plays the audio from the _dta version. 

1. Find version with French Audio
2. Copy link
3. Paste into a new Tab/Page (do not press enter or go)
4. Find the same file on the english page, and view what the file name is most appear to be the same with _dta stuck before .move
5 Chage the filename to add the _dta
6.  press return which should download
7. put in same directory as the other 118 files you downloaded.
8 Load Quicktime, drag the DTA file to quicktime.
9 Video plays and hopefully if there is audio it should be english

If this is confusing.  SOrry its late and I am tired.  Anyone feel free to clarify this LOL

French and all the videos here http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/software/hexagon/2/videos/start
English here http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/artzone/pub/tutorials/hexagon/hexvt_english

Okay there were quiet a few.  So I found a simpler way.

Go to http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/software/hexagon/2/videos/start

After you download all the videos (I use DownThemAll! in Firefox) makes it a couple of clicks just select video files. 

Save As to your HD (this saves the HTML so we can do the next step)

Open in an editor that doesn’t insert code, I use NOtepad++ or EditPad or even Notepad should work.

Do a Find / Replace

FIND: .mov
REPLACE: _dta.mov

Replace all and save.

Open the page we saved in your browser, Do the same as before either clicking each file that has audio and saving (or using DownThemAll! it will error on the files that have no _dta so thats perfect)

Sorry about the multiple posts, I should have caught that on the first one.

Glad they could help! I hope my instructions on how to get the English ones weren’t too bad.

French:

English:

Would be nice if they could play in VLC but back when they made them bandwidth was so expensive I would imagine, so that was a clever space saving measure..

I’m not certain if it is an issue for anyone, if Geek-at-Play seems to have their tuts on YouTube anyway, but the link posted at the beginning of the thread is broken. Here’s an updated link if anyone is interested in accessing the tutorials on their site:

Do you happen to know it the videos from the pdf manual are around anywhere on the web? Art Zone is totally dead on that stuff. It’s a shame. That stuff didn’t take up a whole lot of storage space. But now everyone getting the manual gets broken links. Too bad - I heard it was a nice feature.

They’re here:
http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/software/hexagon/2/userguide/start

You have to download the ZIP file to get them.
