I'm not sure I got this right. The Webinars are available for download or only for streaming? Can one get an mp4 or any other video file format of the webinars or can they only be viewed using the stream57 interface?

I think that is the case for now.

Nevertheless I thank you for providing this suggestion. I will forward this request to AMD.
