The presents in Electric December rely on the latest plug-ins for your web browser.
We have made three small boxes that contain one of each of these pieces of mulitmedia web content, so that you can check to see if the plug-ins are already installed and working on your computer.
Click on the 'Check to see' links below and a small browser window will pop-up. If you can see an animation of a present box opening and closing with the name of the plug-in on the left, then you are ready to open the presents that rely on that plug-in. If not click back on this page and follow the links below to download the appropriate plug-ins.
