Trouble viewing the videos? Here are 4 helpful tips.

1.) Make sure you have the latest version of QuickTime Player for either PC or Mac. Click the icon above to get the free download.

2.) All PC's and Mac's are different, but most recent  machines (4-5 years) should easily handle the playback of these videos.

3.) A high-speed internet/broadband connection is recommended as these video files can be quite large.

4.) Some machines will stream the videos (begin playing while the file is concurrently downloading). Other machines seem to perform better by allowing the file to completely download before starting the video (allow the small progress bar at the bottom of the video frame to go completely from left to right to indicate the download has completed).
