Internet Multimedia Crash Test for Dummies
WARNING, Wil Robinson... some of these multimedia files are likely to choke Robot.
That's why we've set up this crash test area.
Nuttin' can get ya car-sick quicker on

If you are unsure of your computer's ability to hear sound (such as,

is needed... like a soundcard, codec or media player.)
