To view videos you may need:
MP4 Video Player
Most videos have been converted to the
universal streaming .mp4 (motion picture 4) file format and should
begin playing right away on any device.
Windows Media Player
Videos still in the proprietary .wmv (windows media video) format will
download before playing. If needed, click on the button to the right
to get Microsoft's free video player. Select the version that works with your operating system
(e.g., Windows 10, OS X). Mac users may be directed to download
Windows Media Components for QuickTime.
A low-speed connection should work if you're patient, but for optimum
performance, the higher the speed the better.
If you don't have a high-speed connection,
perhaps a friend, school, or library does. Write down the desired
web address and enter it on their computer.
You may have to wait a few
seconds for an .mp4 file to "buffer," but the video should
start playing before the
entire file is downloaded. If your connection is slow, the video may
pause occasionally while fetching the next scene.
Download: You must wait for a .wmv file to download completely before it begins playing. If
nothing happens after several minutes, look for the file in your
Taskbar or Downloads folder and click or double-click on it. If
your connection is slow, or a video is long, click on the link to start the download, then
do something else while you
wait. You'll generally
hear the video when it starts
playing on its own.
To view handouts you may need:
Most browsers will open Adobe .pdf (portable
document format) files, but if yours won't, click on the button on
the right to get a free copy of Adobe
