NB Please note you must use Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat to view the movies embedded in the document. Your computer may 'preview' the file with another application, but usually that application won't play the movies and may not display the publication correctly. Adobe Reader can be downloaded for free from www.adobe.com. If you're still having troubles, please ensure you have the latest version loaded on your computer.

2015 UPDATE: if you're using the latest Acrobat DC or Acrobat Reader DC, you may need to update your computer system to include the new Flash player separately. Adobe will give you an error message and you can simply follow the link to a page. Follow the instructions to install Flash on your Windows (two apps) or Mac (one app).

The link is: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/flash-player-needed-acrobat-reader.html

Please note, that Windows users should download both Active X and Plugin links - there are two things to install to get it working properly!

iPad Users: The Layer's ebooks are video embedded pdf's and they currently will not play on the ipad.
