Normally, I'd recommend watching the videos on mediaspace, but this flash viewer allows for you to watch the video at fast speed - which may be helpful. If the flash player doesn't work for you, look on mediaspace. Note that this video is 720p, so if you can't see it clearly, you may need to watch it at a larger size.
