The ability to download audio and video for offline use and the ability to watch videos not embedded into content, like General Conference talks.
Initial groundwork for offline media is now in Gospel Library for Windows 10 Beta. You can download media, though the experience is subpar and incomplete at this time. We’ll be working to complete and polish the feature as development continues.
You can learn more about the beta at the link below:
Offline media is only supported for non-embedded content. Embedded videos are still not offline capable. We'll be building on our groundwork in future updates.

I should mention that I am on Windows 10 1703 the creators build from a couple months ago. In the media ribbon I don't see a download link icon at all. In fact the ribbon doesn't control the media on this lesson at all. The media has the play / pause / full screen options, the media ribbon at the top doesn't associate with the media being played.

Running Beta installed today. I go to Come Follow Me for Sunday school, load a lesson. See videos but no way to download for offline use like the android version has. I see no way to download the videos in the Windows 10 App t all. Heck, downloading videos doesn't work with Chrome on lds.org, have to use IE now too, but that is a different issue.
We've never said that this feature would be limited to tablets, just that (a year ago), we'd redesigned the interface for tablets to make this more feasible on those devices. That said, this feature will be exclusive to the Windows 10 UWP version of the app when it releases.

This should not be limited to tablets, please. I just enjoyed some videos from the D&C Visuals section (in German), but I see no way to download these videos to my PC for later use in a lesson. The church always recommends us to download and have the material local because we can't be sure that the wireless internet connection in the meeting house will work at the moment or in the room we need it. So please support us by making this material available for download.

I have been having problems listening to the Old testament and as with the Android version it would be nice to be able to download the audio to play when not connected to the internet. Thank you for working on this
Frequently I prepare a lesson, which includes a video. Then, when I actually get to class, there is no (or bad) WiFi and I can't show the video.

Offline Bible Videos --> definite need.
