    Many people have had difficulties downloading videos, especially when using Internet Explorer. This was caused due issues with my hotlink protection. This should now be resolved, if you have any further problems please post.

    99% of the videos are encoded with Windows Media 9, make sure your media player has this codec or you have Media Player 9 installed.

    Because I have an internet connection of 2kbps. The only practical way to view things like this is to download it.

    What you need to do is press pause and wait for the video to cache, when the majority is cached press play. This site like any other that has video content is optimised for broadband users, with a 2k net connection you are bound to have problems.

    It's very difficult to troubleshoot your problem without more information or access to your PC which obviously isnt an option.

    1. Embeded video uses an Active-X component. Check you have it installed/enabled.
    2. Try different browsers, and check your browsers security settings.
    3. Is it the flash videos, or the windows media videos you are having problems with?

    Videos are embedded, I have'nt made any obvious provision for them to be downloaded, just watch them.

    I've just tested with IE7 and it blocks all active-X components by default...This stops the embedded videos from working unless you specifically allow active-X via a popup which appears at the top of your browser prompting you to allow/dis-allow active-X.
