Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Some of the most frequently asked questions from members are listed below with helpful answers from our Support team.
If you don't find below, we'd love the opportunity to help you. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org description of your issue or send a direct message to the trainer through the platform.
Response times from our Support team are fastest from 9am-6pm PT, Monday thru Friday. Support requests submitted outside those times may receive delayed responses. In you are having technical issues, you can also reach out to our platform partner. Email them at email@example.com.
Although we support Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer, we strongly suggest you use the latest version of Chrome. If you choose to use a browser other than Chrome please make sure you have the most up-to-date version to ensure everything on the site works smoothly.
You can also upload videos using our iHitting app. It's available for free through the iTunes store. This app allows you directly upload your videos from iOS compatable phones and tablets. Sorry at this time, the iHitting app is not available for Android devices.
Most residential cable and DSL connections should be more than adequate. If you are accessing the site via a wi-fi connection make sure you have a strong connection. Uploading and playing videos using a weak wi-fi connection can result in choppy or buffering video playback.
The typical turn-around time for trainers is 24-48 hours.
Many phones and tablets now give the option of filming in slow motion. It's perfectly fine to send in a slow motion video.
The way that most people video record these days is with their phones or tablets. If you record with an iPhone or Android device, you aren't going to have to worry about file formats, codecs, video compression or anything else. Download the iHitting app to make it even easier to upload your videos.
You must own or hold all necessary rights (copyrights, etc.) to your video. Do not upload rips of movies, music, television, or any other third party copyrighted material unless you have legal permission to do so. Do not upload sexually explicit material or pornography. No videos that are hateful, harass others, or include defamatory or discriminatory speech. Do not upload videos that depict or promote unlawful acts, extreme or real-life violence, self-harm, or cruelty towards animals.
We allow one video to be submitted at a time. However, it's very common for people to combine multiple video clips into one video using a tool like iMovie. In fact, most trainers prefer this as it gives them a more complete picture of what you are working on.
It depends on the subscription you have signed up for. You can find this information from your trainer's website under pricing and plans.
In general, the amount of time it takes to upload a video to Spladap is out of our control. We do not limit our members' upload speeds - we take as much bandwidth as your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will allow. If your upload is slower than expected, it could be due to multiple factors, including: lower overall upload speeds provided by your particular Internet plan, time of day or peak hour usage with your ISP, increased traffic on your local network, or incorrect network, firewall, or router settings. When testing your upload speeds, keep in mind that online speed tests are not always accurate. The results you receive from these tests may be skewed by the location of the test server, as well as the factors listed above.
If your video isn't displaying correctly or you are seeing an error message following your attempt to upload, it may mean that the video you uploaded includes a video or audio codec that we do not support.
If you run out of storage space you will need to delete some videos from your Media Locker.

Be sure to check your junk or spam filters on your email inbox. Even if you're generally able to receive emails at your email address, your email client or ISP (such as Comcast, SBC, etc.) may be blocking email from Spladap or mistakenly filtering our emails as spam. Unfortunately, if we're blocked or filtered by a particular email provider, security software, or ISP, we aren't able to fix this issue on an individual basis. We are constantly working on our side to increase our email delivery, and we appreciate your patience.
