Workout videos on new desktop app

Before the new desktop app when I select a workout that has a workout video that goes with it, it ask me to select the file and display it on the TR window stoping the play if I stop the workout, in the new app I can´t find a way to do it, do you remove it?

What specific videos?

like Sufferfest, Cycle-Club, etc

Videos that comes with some third party workouts like Cycle-Club or Sufferfest, I have several from Cycle-Club H.I.T. training that I love and before TP App ask me to select the file, now it doesn’t

Sufferfest video workouts were removed quite a while ago, as far as I know.
I am unsure about the Cycle-Club ones.

I suggest an email to support@trainerroad.com for a more direct connection and they will respond promptly with an answer.

The last version of the desktop app ask me to select the video file each time I load the Cycle-Club workout, the last time I use it was 2 weeks ago before I update to the new desktop app, and now It does not.
I already write to support hope they can help.

Thank you Chad.

Hey @edealba,

Unfortunately, we have removed support for Video Workouts in the newest version of the application :pensive:.

The good news is that you can download the Legacy version of the app if you would like to continue using video workouts. Just follow this link to download the Legacy version:
Windows
Mac

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Just so TrainerRoad knows, I still have a bunch of old workout videos that I still really enjoy using whenever the workout style of that video happens to match with whatever TR workout I need to do that day. I’ll sub them in every now and then. (Or sometimes if I want to do a race simulation.) When Sufferfest workouts got dropped from the inventory, I copied all of them and created my own custom version of them that I can still sync to the old videos I have. Bottom line is that I’m kinda bummed that video support got dropped on the new windows app. So I’m going to continue using the legacy app.

I know I’m just one person; and if everyone else is cool with no video support, that’s cool. Just wanted to let ya’ll know.

Hi - have been an off and on TR user for about 3 years using the original Kickr.

Thing I loved about the old app was the ability to use the workout creator integrating that with video & music from my favourite rides or just random cycling videos from wherever.

My question is will the legacy app be supported by TR into the future - losing the video integrated with music and where everything just works would be a deal breaker for me and I suspect others.

Don’t need the Calendar so not sure I want to upgrade, now or ever - so will us happy campers with the old version be allowed to train on blissfully into the future?
best, Andrew

We have no intentions of doing away with the Legacy versions of the application :slight_smile: These versions play an important role for people who are on older equipment, older computer hardware, and in your case, are active users of features that have been phased out.

By keeping them around, we can be sure that we keep all of our users happy :+1:.
