So you’ve downloaded our social skills videos, now what? We need to get you watching! This post explains all the ways you can view your videos on VHX. It’s really an amazing solution, allowing you to watch your videos from anywhere that has an internet connection.
The first thing you recommend you do is download our one page getting started guide. It’s really handy for quick reference. For more detail, read on!
During the checkout process, you were asked to enter an email address. After your purchase, you should immediately receive an email with a link to watch the videos. Clicking on that link will bring you to your library. You may have to perform a device verification step where VHX emails you a link to register your device. You should only have to do this once per device you register.
It’s important to note that you will have access to the videos for as long as the subscription is active.
Streaming your Videos from vhx.tv – Watch from ANY Computer
It’s annoying to have to go back to your email every time you want to watch the videos. Don’t worry, you won’t have to! Just bookmark this link: https://everydayspeechsocialskillsvideos.vhx.tv/browse
If you aren’t signed in, you will be prompted to when you visit the site. Just use the same email you used to purchase the videos. You can do this from any computer, so if you’re caught without yours, or in a different classroom, you can just log in and get your videos anywhere.
If you have Apple TV, Roku, or Chromecast in your classroom, you can easily stream the videos over these services.
Our library is already large, and it’s constantly growing! It might be difficult for you to find the video you’re looking for. So, we’ve created an index page with worksheet links for you. You can find that page here.
Once you know the name of the video you’d like to watch, simply select the “search” button at the top of the screen:
and start typing in the video you’d like to watch. The video should magically appear before you!
Watching From Your iPad
With our Everyday Speech iPad App, you can stream videos directly to your iPad. You can also sync them for offline use, just like you can on the computer. To download the app, please visit this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/everyday-speech-social-skills-videos/id1252779131?mt=8, or search “Everyday Speech” in the app store.
Logging in to the App
When you first open the app, click “Sign In” and enter in the email you used when you purchased the videos. VHX may send you an email to ensure it’s you, but you should only have to do this once.
Once you log in and confirmed your email, the videos you own will appear right in front of you! If you click on the package, you should see a list of collections – these are just playlists we organized the videos into. Click a collection to see the list of videos.
Once you’ve clicked on a video, you can click on the icon that looks like a cloud with a down arrow to offline sync the video – meaning you can watch it without an internet connection.
Any video you synced can be removed from the device by clicking that same button, which should have turned into an “X” after you synced it.
After that, to get started viewing a video, simply press play (the play button is the triangle icon on the video itself)! You can press the square button in the lower right hand corner of the video to make it play full screen.
Watching from an iPad Without the App/Watching From Android Tablets
If you’re caught without your iPad (the horror!), you can also simply go to https://everydayspeechsocialskillsvideos.vhx.tv/browse from the web browser on any iPad and log in just as you would on a computer. The videos will work just fine!
For Android tablet users, you can download the VHX app from the Google Play store here. The process to watch videos is similar to the one described for the iPad above.
Companion Worksheets – an Activity for Every Video
Go beyond just the videos with our companion worksheets! Each video has a worksheet, so you can work on applying the skill you just learned! Create entire lessons around a single video! To find the worksheet you want, visit our Social Skills Videos Index.
From there you can search, filter, and sort to quickly find what you need!
Forums – Converse With Fellow Therapists
With forums from VHX, you now have a place to discuss everything social skills with your fellow therapists. You can talk about new activities, ideas you have for videos, or anything else under the sun. Simply visit our forum at https://everydayspeechsocialskillsvideos.vhx.tv/forums to get started.
You can start your own threads, follow other threads to get automatic updates, or just pop in every now and then to get inspired.
As you’ve seen, you can pretty much do it all with VHX. Unlike physical DVD’s, these videos can never be lost or broken! By allowing you to login to your library from anywhere, you can be assured that you’ll always have access to these videos.
If you have further questions, comments, or issues playing your videos, contact us. Happy watching!
