General Information about the videos and the video player
This website has being designed to work across all browser types and mobile devices (smartphones and tablet devices) capable of playing video files.
It has been tested on the majority of the popular computer browsers and mobile device browsers.
The videos play using HTML 5, if your browser doesn't support HTML 5 the video player will know that and play the video in 'Adobe Flash' instead.
The videos are all streamed directly to you so you don't need to wait for them to download before you can view them.
Do I need to have anything installed to view the movies?
No you don't; if you have a modern browser. If you have an older browser your will need 'Adobe flash' installed.
The videos don't play on my computer?
If the videos just don't play at all when you ask them to there may be two reasons.
I'm inside a corporate NHS network.
- The network may be programmed to 'not allow' streaming media. You should contact your IT support team and ask that question. If the answer is 'you cannot view streaming media' you should request that this restriction is removed for you so that you can view the videos.
- If the answer is 'you can already view streaming media' we suggest that you upgrade your browser and your version of flash to the latest allowable. Again you need to discuss this with your IT support team.
I'm at home and on a private (Home type) network.
- It is very unlikely that your home network is restricting streaming media, so it is probable that you need to upgrade your browser and your version of flash to the latest version. You can do this by searching for 'Adobe Flash Player' and 'Upgrade xxxxxxxx browser' by following the links returned by your search engine you will be able to quickly and simply upgrade.
In most cases this will resolve your viewing problems and you will be able to view the movies. If not please email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you can take a screenshot of any error message you are getting that would help us resolve your problem.

The videos don't play on my mobile device?
The videos are delivered in two formats HTML5 and Adobe flash, which version you see is dependent upon your chosen device.
If the movies don't play at all, then your device just may not support streaming media playback. Some older Android, Blackberry, Nokia devices and low mid rage models from most manufactures may not be capable enough. Please also note that viewing the movies over 3g and not wireless may introduce stuttering due to limited bandwidth.
We have tested the videos on Apple, Blackberry and Android devices installed with the most recent available Mobile format operating systems
- Apple mobile OS 'iOS' (Version: 4+)
- BlackBerry OS 'BBOS' (Version: 5+)
