To see the video you'll need the free QuickTime player

Like all video on the Web, the Times' videos should be viewed using a high-speed Internet connection, such as DSL/cable, T1, or other broadband connection. With any slower connection the video can stop and start or disconnect completely.

If you have a fast enough connection, you will need the latest QuickTime player or the latest Flash player. Both players are free.

If you have a firewall, you may have to follow these steps for viewing streamed QuickTime files behind a firewall:

Normally, QuickTime streaming uses a protocol (a method of communicating via the Internet) called RTSP to ensure the best performance. (RTSP stands for Real-Time Streaming Protocol.) If your network connection is protected by a firewall, you may not be able to connect using RTSP. You can use the HTTP protocol instead.

To use HTTP streaming (in Windows):
1. In QuickTime Player, choose Edit > Preferences > QuickTime Preferences.
2. Choose Streaming Transport.
3. Select “Use this protocol and port ID,” and choose “Use HTTP Port ID.”
If QuickTime can configure itself for your firewall, you can now watch streaming QuickTime movies.

To use HTTP streaming (in Mac OS X):
1. In QuickTime Player, choose QuickTime Player > QuickTime Preferences (or open System Preferences and click QuickTime).
2. Click Advanced.
3. Choose Custom from the Transport Setup pop-up menu.
4. Choose HTTP from the Transport Protocol pop-up menu.
If QuickTime can configure itself for your firewall, you can now watch streaming QuickTime movies.

If you still experience problems you will find more information on the QuickTime website.
