Laura,
Yes its like a movie, most people can see it very wel. I don't understand why it does not work on some PC's. Maybe you have to install a extra program.

It's a mediaplayer format.

Sorry Wybe,
I can't seem to get it either. There was hint to download a plug-in program, which I did, but it still won't work :(

Wijbe-this is a new computer, so I have no plugins on it at all. But it didn't ask me download a plugin or anything, so how can I know what to install?! I'd really like to see the photos too... no way to post them as usual photos? (or, a hint: I see your 2008 photos; what's the difference between 2008 and 2009?)

I have a MAC and Media Player and I am not able to see it either. The comment is that the format is not compatible with our computer. I am wondering if this is because the movie is on a European server. We have had trouble trying to download images from Europe before.
I am sorry I can't see your pictures Wybe.

I also have MediaPlayer and got nothing. I followed the prompt to install thinking that because it's coming from Europe, I needed a special MediaPlayer and still nothing. Wish I could see them :( .

Kindest regards,
Mary

Wijbe

I just viewed your Hydra pictures. I clicked your website link and the show started immediately.

Truly magnificent photography and editing! Beautiful accompanying music as well.
Thank you for sharing this outstanding effort with all of us.

Dear Wybe & Willy,

As we say in Ireland 'cead mile buiochas' - 100,000 thank you's - for the magnificant video of Hydra. It was my birthday yesterday and the video was the unexpected cherry on the icing on the cake.

Looking forward to meeting you again in Barcelona.

In song. Paula

Thanks, Wybe. You really captured the spirit of the whole event. I especially like the first song. Is it by Melina Mercouri?

In case there is anyone out there who hasn't yet overdosed on Hydra, I have figured out how tom post links to my facebook albums:
