I am Having Trouble Viewing The Video Clips
Many of our more recent videos have clips available for online
viewing that are approximately 5 to 8 minutes in length. These
are small size (160 X120 pixels) clips, in order to allow
you to view them quickly.
They are all in Flash format. If your computer supports Flash,
then you should see a small TV screen on the right edge of
the window, across from the image of the video sleeve. You
can push the Play button (a "right arrow" like you
would have on your VCR) to start the loading of the video.
You will then see the horizontal bar above that button start
to change color, to indicate that the movie is being downloaded.
When enough of the movie has been downloaded to allow you
to play it fully (usually about 10% of the full movie), it
will start playing. Once it is playing, you can press the
rewind button (left arrow) to return to the start or the movie,
or the pause button (two vertical bars) to temporarily stop
Flash works on Macintosh and Windows computers, using Internet
Explorer or Netscape. It is also supported on a variety of
other platforms, but those account for the large majority
of internet users. Macintosh computers must have at least
OS 8.6 installed, and PCs must have Windows 95 or later.
If your computer is able to support Flash, and you do not
have it installed, then the movie clip should take you to
the Macromedia site to allow you to download it. If that doesn't
happen automatically for some reason, you can go to
and follow the instructions there to install the plug-in.
It will only take a couple minutes, and will allow you to
see many more Internet sites, as this is rapidly becoming
a standard method of displaying animation.
If you have any problems with this, feel free to send
me an email and I'll see what I can do to help.
