The videos do not play smoothly!

The reasons for a video not playing smoothly are down to various factors. Your Internet connection, how fast your processor is within your computer and if you have the most recent flash player installed on your computer.

The videos are best viewed with a broadband connection such as a DSL or cable modem and make sure that your JavaScript is turned on in your web browser.


How do I turn on my JavaScript?

2. Locate the tool bar at the top of the screen and select Tools.

3. Then select Internet Options.

4. Select the security tab, left click on the globe icon to highlight it and then select custom level.

5.  You should now be in the Security Settings panel.  Now search through the menu until you reach Active Scripting.

The videos are still jumpy!

1. Install the latest flash player on your computer, this can be downloaded free from

2. Select the video you would like to watch and start the video playing.

3. Put the player into full screen using the full screen icon on the bottom of the player.

4. Pause the video again you can find this on the bottom of the player.
