Chess Videos

Notes on how to use the chess videos:

  • You must have the Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer. It is probably already installed — if not, it can be downloaded at the Adobe website.
  • The videos work best with broadband connections (DSL, Cable). Dial-up connections may result in a slower viewing experience.
  • All videos include AUDIO. If you do not hear audio when playing the videos, make sure the audio functionality on your computer (e.g. speakers, sound card) is working correctly.
  • The links below will open a separate flash video window.
