ErgVideo how-to: in-depth

the deeper details

Yes, these videos are in-depth and full of details. The essentials were back there, you must've passed them, or you are looking for something we didn't cover. You ought to find it here. Some of these use older versions of ErgVideo to demo the features, but you'll get the idea, for sure. 

 

using ErgVideo free-mode

Yes you can use ErgVideo software to do for FREE what you pay other companies a subscription fee to do!

WHA-WHAT?

Indeed. You can ride ergometer Power vs Time files in the .fit, .erg, and .mrc formats with ErgVideo, without purchasing anything, no subscription fee. Nada. Zilch. Zip. Here's a video we produced for our new free-mode users that summarizes a ton of things in all the other videos, all in one package. It's  long, so if you are looking for a specific topic, have a look around.

feature details (not the quickies!)

We presented some "feature quickies" on the essentials page. These videos go into more detail for those features. Some are the same as on the essentials page, but repeated here because here is where you may be looking for the topic! (and we'll note here that Strava has finally permitted picture posting from a browser, and we'll be looking into getting them auto-posted through ErgVideo sometime soon).

connecting trainers and devices

Okay, the very deep details on connecting your hardware and any of a buh-zillion combinations and permutations. The first is the full-on general view of how the whole thing works for any combination of a multi rider facility, and the second talks about the simpler single-rider optimized and simpler case. You may fall somewhere in-between, so you may want to look at the specific use-cases for which we've recorded a separate videos.
