The video file is complete, but in order to bring you the audio and video quality needed, it is a BIG file. You may view it as a "stream" or you may download the file for later reference. As long as the file is kept intact, it may be freely shared with others. If you are on a PC system, I highly recommend using something like Mozilla Firefox (a free download, big improvement on Internet Explorer) as a means to view this presentation.
