Our FOD statistics are down dramatically also.  But on our campus the FOD 
service has not been working well all semester - since the enhancements made to 
the service in August.  Our faculty have been having terrible trouble with 
making the programs stream - in the classroom and from home.  The programs are 
hanging and halting play.  Many of our faculty have given up trying to use the 
service and are coming into AV to borrow dvds.

Our IT department is working on the problem on our campus and will be having a 
conference call with FOD tech staff.  For those of you who have experienced a 
drop in statistics, are you sure that the streaming has actually been working 
for your faculty?

Subject: Re: [Videolib] Films On Demand Statistics

Just looking at the most recent month, our usage data is off about 70% from the 
same period last year so there appears to be a possible change in how usage is 
being counted. If anything I'd expect growth from last year. There are 
definitely more classes using it this year.
