This is fantastic and a real go-to app for drumming theory, I have used it intensively for the past year. However the videos have stopped working since I last used the app a few weeks ago. I have reset the app, but still no video functionality. Is this a problem for anyone else?

Sorry Ian for the trouble. So far we only had 2 cases of this problem. The videos have to be downloaded separately. That’s how we kept the app so light. Please send us an email to support@drumschoolapp.com with your device and operating system info, if you still experiencing this problem and we will fix it right away. Thank you!
