The Audiobook file is an .m4b – which is a chapterized, book-markable audio file. The video file is an .mp4 – a high quality format that keeps the file size reasonably small.
For both Mac and Windows, you can use the latest version of either of these programs to play both the Audiobook and Video. Be sure to download the appropriate version for your computer, Mac or Windows.

I have double clicked the file, but it says it cannot open, what should I do?
