    Hello all :)

    I'm wondering if you all can help me with something. My mother is trying to watch videos online of an interior designer she loves and *needs* these videos. However, we can't get them to play. I tried to play around with it, and as far as I can tell they are SWF files.. not too sure what that means. I have flash player and all the right plugins and updates as far as I know. My aunt, who sent my mom this site, says they work on her computer. I'm just wondering if there is something mac related that is preventing them from playing, or if anyone can figure out how to get them working.

    Here is the link:

    Hoping someone has some input, it would be much appreciated!

    Thank you :)

    To me it looks like there's a problem with the site.

    They don't work with the latest version of Flash Player in Windows for me.

    SWF stands for Shockwave Flash.
