For a seamless playback of the movie files which you will find at the galleries above, I recommend to download and save the individual movie files to your computer first, and open them for viewing locally, after the download has completed.
As the time went by, I have been trying various video encoders and formats. Almost all the cases here are stored in the standard MPEG-1 format (.mpg files), which should be fully compatible with all the platforms and video players, and which should pose no problems even to the older or weaker computers (including netbooks). Beginning with 2007, the movie files are stored also in the H.264/QuickTime (.mov files) format, and since mid-2008 in the H.264/MPEG-4 format (.mp4 files). The .mp4 and .mov files provide much better quality as compared to the .mpg files, but require somewhat stronger computers.
If you happen to fail playing these movie files with your installed movie player smoothly (or if you are not able to play them at all), I recommend trying the Media Player Classic, together with one of these codec packs, XP Codec Pack or K-Lite Codec Pack. In case of persisting problems with .mov files, try QuickTime Alternative. All of this is freeware. In Windows 7 and 8 you should be able to play all of these formats without any problems.
"Speed" information (beginning with 2007) indicates how much faster you are viewing these movies as compared to "natural" speed of the sequence. Technically speaking, this is a product of time lapse interval used when shooting the sequence, and frame rate of the video (each time lapse image shown as one video frame).
