    Are you using version 6? The files was saved in version 7 which isn’t backward compatible. However, I’ve saved the file in version 6 format which you can try downloading again.

    I’ve checked it and it plays for me. Have you tried restarting your browser. Clear the browser ache and then give it a try again.

    Hi Chris, I’m having the same problem. Can play the second part fine, but the first part just crashes after 3 seconds. I have done what you suggested above.
