Accessing the Video

To access the video on this site, you will need to have the free Flash player plug-in (version 6 or higher) installed in your browser.

Get Macromedia Flash Player

If, for some some reason, you do not wish to install the Flash player plug-in, you can still use the downloadable video option (see below).

Downloadable Video

Why download the video?

In addition to being able to view the video clips as Flash video on the study module pages, registered users can also download the clips as Flash Projector files. These are free-standing applications that do not require you to have Flash installed on your computer.

This also means you can access the video if you don’t have a broadband connection. You can even copy the video clips to computers that aren’t connected to the web. This is particularly useful in classroom situations where a net connection may be unavailable or unreliable, or where many students need to view the video simultaneously on multiple computers – a situation which could otherwise clog up the school’s internet connection.

How to download a video clip

There are two different versions of the downloadable video – a Windows version and a Macintosh version. Once you have logged into the site, the links allowing you download both versions will appear on the left hand side of the page, underneath the embedded video clip. A simple click on the appropriate link should start the file downloading. Each clip will take somewhere between a few seconds and 30 minutes to download, depending on the speed of your internet connection.

How do I play the video clip once I’ve downloaded it?

Windows users — the clips are encoded as “zip” files, and need to be unzipped before use. Depending on how your computer is configured, this may happen automatically. Otherwise, you will need a ZIP utility such as WinZip or WinRAR. Once you have unzipped the file, the video clip will appear as a regular .exe file, which can be launched like any other application (e.g.. by double-clicking).

Macintosh users — the clips are encoded as “stuffit” files, and need to be unstuffed before use. Depending on how your computer is configured, this may happen automatically. Otherwise, you will need to get a stuffit tool such as the free Stuffit Expander utility. Once you have unstuffed the file, the video clip will appear as a regular application which can be launched like any other application (e.g.. by double-clicking).
