streaming video clips from the internet to their personal computers. Simply copy and paste the URL of the clip and download it as either:a high quality .mp4 movie (Recommended: these files retain far greater quality when enlarged to full-screen--a must for large-group presentations.)a medium/low quality .flv movie file.
Once downloaded, you must have an appropriate movie player application installed on your personal computer in order open/view the file. For high-quality .mp4 files, Apple's QuickTime Player (Free download for Windows, Mac & Linux) is an excellent choice.
