Cada ejercicio se completa con un vídeo que explica cómo realizarlo, junto con otros para celebrar el éxito y que ofrecen el conteo. En los reproductores originales usamos tarjetas de 64 GB SD y compresión H.265 para reducir el tamaño del archivo en un 50%, pero los nuevos disponen de un puerto M2 que nos permite instalar una unidad Sata SSD”.
