I don't want to receive so many system messages from MyMuscleVideo
The site automatically sends out notifications when a video of yours receives a comment, when somebody wrote you a personal message and other things. If you do not wish to receive these notifications (and users who uploaded lots of videos know how much this can be ;-) - then go here: "Edit Profile Information" from the top navigation bar, then go "Notifications" on the left menu. There you can select and deselect everything you wish to receive notification mails for - or not.


How do I watch and save videos and photos?
Watching videos and photos on MyMuscleVideo couldn't be easier. Just come to the site and browse around, or search for subjects that interest you. To save your favorites for later, you need to click the 'Add to Favorites' link underneath the videos you want to watch later. You can also create playlists to group favorite videos together into your own personal categories.

When playing the videos, the player stops before the video is finished. What can I do?
You can see how far the video has loaded by the grey bar moving. If the video plays faster than it loads, just stop the video for a while and let the video fully load.

How can I contact a user?
If you want to get in touch with a user on MyMuscleVideo and you only know the username, just type it in the search field on the start page.

There is a link saying "Send me a private message" - there you go.

How do I remove a video or photo?
To remove one of your media files, simply log in, go to "Home", then click "Media" from the Submenu, select the video you want to remove and click on the 'Delete this media' button next to the video you'd like to remove. You are only able to remove media files that you have uploaded yourself.
