What format are the short films available in?
The videos are available in 2 file formats: (
1) MPEG – this is a very universal file format. MPEG most likely works in your computer’s default media player. (2) MOV – This is Quicktime’s high resolution, H.264 file format. We offer films in HD MOV resolution. You must have Quicktime 7.0.1 or later to play this file, which is available for free at www.apple.com/quicktime
What is the resolution of your short films?
We offer 2 versions of the short films depending on use of the product:
1. SD version is 800×600 which is what most church projectors use. HD version is either 1960×1080 or 1280×720, depending on what year the film is produced. All new films are full 1080p HD.

My credit card was denied, what do I do?
Check the following:
1. Make sure that you enter the right card number.
2. Make sure you are entering the right security code found on the back of your card.
3. Make sure your card hasn’t expired.
4. Make sure that the billing address entered is the same as the one in your account.
If all this doesn’t work, try a different card. If you are still having difficulty downloading you purchase, we’re sorry for the frustration and please contact us
How do I access my download links?
After completing the payment process a link is provided for the download. This account link is also sent to the email address you provided during the purchase process. Or, simply navigate to the page of the film you purchased and you will now see a download button on the right side. You can download your film(s) by accessing your account at any time by logging in through the “Account” link on the top of the website.
My download didn’t work the first time. Can I try it again?
Yes. There is no limit to the amount of times you can download your film(s). You can access your account at anytime and the film(s) will be available for download. If you are having problems, please contact us
and we will make sure the link is active and working correctly.
What if my download link expires before I get the chance to download what I ordered?
The download links do not expire. If there is a problem, make sure that the download did not get cut off early. Sometimes because of either the internet connection or computer, files get cut short. Try downloading again. Some of the video files are larger than 200 megabytes. If you are certain that the entire file downloaded, then the issue is likely with the program you are trying to play the video in. We recommend Quicktime
or the VLC media player.
How long will it take to download a file?
The Deidox short films were encoded at the highest possible quality while keeping their size small enough to download. A download could take 15 minutes depending on your internet connection. (Please Note: if you have a 14.4 kbit/s dialup modem, the download will probably take days or weeks. This is not advisable.)
How do I open a zip file?
Once your file has finished downloading, double click on it and your computer should open it automatically. If not, you may need to download one of the free programs listed below:
1. Stuffit Expander – PC & Apple – www.stuffit.com/mac/expander/index.html
2. Winzip – PC only – www.winzip.com
I have downloaded a video, why won’t it play correctly in my player?

VLC Media Player
Windows Media Player
How can I contact Deidox?
The best way to contact us is by sending us a message via our contact page
Do you accept story ideas?
YES! We are always searching for stories to tell. If you have an idea or lead, please submit it via our Idea Submission
Can I fund or commission you to do a film?
YES! Deidox Films is a non-profit organization. All of our films are produced through the generosity of donors who have a passion for the church, the arts, and sometimes even specific themes that they’d like to see a film cover.
Why do you charge for these videos?
Our hope is that the creation of high quality short films about an active God can be a self-sustaining process rather than relying on donations. The goal is that the sale of these Deidox films will allow us to make more Deidox films in the future. At first we considered doing Deidox as a non-profit undertaking, but felt that ultimately if we are going to be able to make dozens of films then it makes more sense to charge for the Deidox short films.
How many Deidox shorts do you hope to do?
We would love to tell as many of these stories as possible. These are the types of stories we’re passionate about finding and telling. Lord willing, over the next year we will transition into a steady stream of new Deidox films now that it has become a non-profit organization with the full-time focus of our staff.
Where does your funding come from?
Initially it was from a saint. (A private investor who believed in the Deidox vision.) Currently, funding comes generous donations from patrons of the arts who want to see more of these types of films produced and distributed to places where they make an impact.
