To view videos you need:
Windows Media Player
This is a free program from
Microsoft that plays .wmv files. Click on the
button on the right to
download a copy. Select the version that works with your operating system
(e.g., Windows 8, OS X).
Mac computers: You'll be redirected to "Flip4Mac
Windows Media Components for QuickTime" by Telestream, which is
available for a small fee.
Internet connection (for best performance)
You may have to wait a few
seconds for a video file to
"buffer," but the movie should
start playing (streaming) before the
entire file is downloaded.
If you don't have a high-speed cable
modem or a DSL connection,
perhaps a friend, school, or
library does. Write down the
desired web address and enter
it on their computer.
Windows 10: Your browser
may download the entire file before it begins playing. If
nothing happens after a few minutes, look for the .wmv file in your
Downloads folder and double-click on it.
Dial-up Modem: Some
people have successfully viewed videos over a
slow-speed, dial-up modem, but it
takes a long time to download
e.g., a 1-minute video clip might
take 5 minutes to download.
Tip: Click on the video
link to start the download, then
do something else while you
hear the video when it starts
playing on its own.
