Several days age, actually i couldn't watch the videos. At that time, i was really boring. But now,i  can. Just now, l learnt from this page that Adam worked hard to solve this problem about very user . Thanks Adam a lot.

I can not watch the videos, i have tried several time with different browsers and versions. but i can not. please help me.

Hello Mehdi,
I'm sorry to hear that. We made another change to the videos today and hoped that it would solve everyone's problems, but there still seem to be one or two people who can't see them.
Can you give us some more information that might help us solve the problem? Are you able to view the video if you click through to this page? Your user profile says you are in Canada, but I notice you have a name that sounds Persian. If you are in Iran at the moment, we know that there is a problem accessing our videos from there. Where are you accessing our website from?
Best wishes,

Do you know much about cars ?
I don't know much about cars. I know how to drive and some little things.
What kind of impact do you think cars have had on society and the environment?
I think the most important impact is   "c,o ,2" gas which cars cause the environment pollution.     ?  

I can't watch videos on your site.  Can I download  videos? Pls help me to download. Thanks!

Hello Nan,

I'm afraid we can't make the Word on the Street videos available for download for copyright reasons, but we hope to make some other videos downloadable in the future.

I'm sorry to hear you can't see the videos at all. What web browser(s) are you using?

Best wishes,
