Depends on your browser, I think. I'm using Mozilla 1.7.3 and it asks
me what I want to do, open the zip or save it to my desktop. Maybe if
you save it (right click on it and select "Save target as" and save it
to your desktop you can open it with Winzip and play it from there.

Thanks for your help - I have finally managed to view the video -
unfortunaltely we don't have any squirrels where we live. I have
tried hair from the vacuum cleaner as I understand they don't like
human hair. I also tried spraying but that does mean regular
attention. I wondered about a wire on the ground which triggered a
noise to scare them - is there anything similar on the market? Don't
want ugly fencing near the house.
First, try hanging cloth bags or stockings full of smelly deodorant bar soap
around the garden. Works best if shredded like cheese. My friend had success
with Irish Spring, if you have that brand there. He had a bunch of young
apple trees which were being nibbled by deer. He ran out of soap while
hanging the stockings, leaving 2 trees unprotected for a few days until he
could get to the store for more soap. The "treated" trees were left alone,
while the unprotected ones were still nibbled. Not 100% scientific, but it
worked (and still works) for him.
As far as ugly fencing, you might consider an electric fence. The wires can
be mounted on wooden posts which aren't ugly. Use a timer to shut the system
off at certain times of day, or you're concerned about people being tingled.
