Although you're free to jump around a training course, clicking and watching any movies in any order you like, there will be times, when you'll want to watch a chapter in its entirety and in order. To do so, just click the first movie in the chapter or whichever movie you'd like to start with. In the movie playback window, next to the play controls, you'll find the Auto Play Chapter button. Clicking it turns the grey, Off button to a white On button, indicating that you've chosen to play the rest of the chapter. So when this movie reaches its end, instead of just stopping and you having to manually close the window and open the next movie, it will automatically load and play the next movie in the chapter. I'll just jump ahead to the end, hit Play, and we'll see it jump to the next movie. >> Let's take a look at two controllers.
>> And it will continue to play each subsequent movie until the last movie of the chapter is reached, at which point you can click the Next Movie button to start playing the first movie of the next chapter, or you can close the window to browse through the table of contents and find another movie you'd like to watch. Another way to play an entire chapter is to click the chapter name in the table of contents. That starts the first movie in the chapter playing and turns on autoplay chapter so that all other movies in the chapter will play continuously.
