For most personal computer users (both Mac and PC), you only need to click on the beetle picture or link (in the left column) to launch the .avi movie. Your computer needs to have a video viewing program (such as QuickTime or Windows MediaPlayer) and hardware installed. If you don't have viewing software, you may be prompted to download it.
Slow connections: The video file is large. If you have a slow dial-up connection, it might not play correctly. One way arond this with a Windows PC is to download the file to your computer, and then play the movie. To do that, right click on the image or link. Then choose Save Target As (in Internet Explorer) or Save Link As (Netscape) in the context menu that pops up. Use the dialog box to browse to a spot where you can find the movie file after you save it, such as on your desktop.
Once the movie is saved, doublclick on the icon on your desktop (or browse to it in Windows Explorer if you're using a Windows system). The video should launch in your viewing program and run smoothly.
