If you are not automatically prompted to download Silverlight you may download it here: Download Silverlight

For other movies, Windows users should use Windows media player to view the streams, Macintosh users should use the free VLC Video Player available here: Macintosh help

Do not use remote desktop, Skybox, or the VPN to view videos as they may degrade performance or not play at all.
