About the video formats

Abbot videos are offered in several formats; your web browser will automatically pick the best for your device.

The formats are MP4, M4V (iTunes/iPhone/iPad/iPod), WEBM, OGG and MOV (Quicktime).

For best results, use the most recent web browser available for your device. Macs, PC’s and tablets are the best way to view the films, but they will also play with lower picture quality on smart phones. If you have a slow Internet connection, please allow plenty of time for a video to download before trying to play it, otherwise the playback will unexpectedly stop and start as data is downloaded.

The videos have been tested on these web browsers: Firefox version 29.0, Mac and Windows 7; Safari 7.0.1 Mac, Windows 7 and iPhone iOS 7; Google Chrome 31.0.1650.63, Mac; and Internet Explorer 10, Windows 7. Newer versions of each of these browsers should also work.
