How do I watch RiffTrax on my tablet or phone?

To watch RiffTrax videos on your tablet or phone, we recommend that you download the file from your RiffTrax Library, linked at the top right of the screen when you're logged in. 

Once you've selected the title you want to download, choose the video file that's appropriate for your device. Tablets that run on Android or Chrome OS can typically download the file right to the device's storage, much like you can with a computer.

Unfortunately, Apple devices can only add files by downloading them first to your computer, then syncing the file through iTunes. This is due to a security restriction in iOS itself, and not something we can easily fix without an app dedicated to playing our VOD content. Someday soon, we hope to have an app that eliminates the need for this!

For audio commentaries, we recommend using the embedded streaming player to play right from your "Play" page. You can also download the MP3 version to your device for off-line, anytime listening! (Note: for iPod or iPhone users, as with video riffs, your best option will probably be to download the mp3 file to a computer that is linked to your iTunes account, and then syncing your new files to your iOS device.)
