Your computer uses a 'Web Browser' such as Internet Explorer to make sense of the information it finds on the internet. However, some content such as music and video is more complex and can require additional software to be installed in order for it to play over the Internet.

InThe software required to play our music and video files through this web site should be pre-installed in most modern computers and so the files will start playing automatically. However, if they do not, please read on for assistance.


Which video format - Windows or Quicktime?
InTo make things easy for our customers, video files
are provided on this web site in two formats - Windows Movie Format (wmv) for computers running a version of Microsoft Windows and Apple Quicktime (mov) for all Apple Macintosh computers.

What about music clips?
InThese are provided as 'MP3' files which should play equally well on both computer systems.

Help! My music or video doesn't play in the browser!
InThis will almost certainly be an issue with the browser plug-ins. Plug-ins are small additions to a web browser which help it to display different types of files including music and video.

InIt may be that your software is a little old or the plug-ins may have been disabled (by another software installation). The simplest and most reliable way to cure this is to save the music or video file to your desktop, and then to play it from there (without the browser).

How do I play the files from my desktop?
InFirstly, right click the file in question and select 'Save To Desktop' (Apple Mac - click and hold). Once the file has finished downloading, simply double click it and the computer will open the file with its built in media player, ignoring the internet browser completely.

My music/video player is out of date or I cannot find it!
InSoftware moves forward at a rapid pace and it is worth checking back with your system provider on a regular basis for free updates that will keep your computer operating efficiently. Fortunately both Microsoft and Apple Macintosh offer an easy to use automatic software update system that is free of charge. Read on if you need help with this.
