Information for viewing videos and slides

These talks have copies of the powerpoint slides alongside- which are time synchronised to the videos of each speaker.
You can choose to watch the video only - by clicking on the image, or for optimal viewing

  • we suggest you click on "View Powerpoint slides" this will open a new browser window alongside the video. Make this window half your screen size (drag window edges),
  • and start the video at the same time as the slides.

The video is streamed from our server - so the video is not downloaded onto your computer. Depending on your broadband connection you may have to wait a few seconds for the stream to play.

The plugins that are needed by the browsers are Flash Player and Powerpoint Viewer - (get these by clicking on the links). If you have Microsoft Office installed on your PC the Powerpoint viewer will load automatically.


Your browser eg. Internet Explorer 7&8, or Mozilla Firefox should handle these videos and slides without any extra downloads. If they dont you may need to get the more recent versions of your browsers.
