  • Step 2 says: "Play index.html in either Firefox, Chrome or IE"

    What exactly are you doing here? If you're running it from disk, then don't expect it to work, it needs to be on a server. Then the server needs to have the right MIME types set up.

  • Thanks so much! It works when played through the server but not from disc, as you say.
