I am wondering if there is a simple way to delete all downloaded media in Logos.  I am referring particularly to Mobile Ed videos.  I would like to free up the space on my hard drive.

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for posting about this. The only way to remove the media would be to go through the panel menu, and select "Delete downloaded media." You'll need to do this for each resource. There is no command that removes the media at once from all resources that might download media. I'm sorry.

Tommy, thank you for the reply.  I just thought I would check before I did it for each individual resource. 

I appreciate your help.

Hi, Tommy:  Video is Media.

Is Audio Media - so I can delete it the same way??

Download all media would be Audio and Video as a package, I take it.

Thank you.

Like the audio media from audio bibles (E.G. ESV Audio Bible, Lexham English Bible Audio)?

It looks like the option exists for the Lexham English Bible Audio, and the Basics of Biblical Greek Vocabulary, but I did not see it for the English Standard Version Audio. I think the rule of thumb is to check, and if you can download the content from the panel menu it can also be deleted. Anything that has that option means it streams as it is played (like Youtube) by default and is cached locally.

Thank you, Tommy.  Re the courses, I only read the transcript.  Thus, I want to remove any downloaded audio or video.  I will check thru them.

If you have not explicitly downloaded any video or audio media for a course, it's not taking up space on your system. Since nothing has been downloaded, there's nothing to remove in your scenario.

Even if someone watches a video from the course, only small portions of it may be temporarily cached for performance reasons while streaming it over the internet. The entire video won't be taking up space on your disk after viewing it over the internet, similar to how watching a YouTube video doesn't also download it for offline viewing.

If you want to actually remove the video and audio resources from your library (which let you stream and/or download the video and audio), you'll have to hide them in your library. Note however, that those resources are small, since they only have links for the video and audio media, but don't contain the actual media itself.

Before you aggressively hide the video and audio resources, you may want to first check to see what effect it may have on the transcript portion of the course (which does embed/link to its media to facilitate playing it).

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

This is a very thorough picture of what I was wondering. After reading your reply several times I will leave well enough alone. I will also copy + paste your reply into my records to reread as needed.

Thank you PetahChristian!
