Here is a link to the series Playlist on YouTube: PCATS YouTube Playlist

The Playlist will automatically advance through each video in the series. The videos are recorded in 1080p High Definition and can be watched in full screen mode without loss of quality. If things look fuzzy, be sure to check that the video settings in the YouTube player (click the gear icon) are correctly set to 1080p HD. Also note that YouTube has variable speed playback (click the gear icon) so that if you prefer, you can increase the playback speed (e.g., from 1x normal to 1.25x normal).

For convenience, we have also embedded the Playlist below. Note that you can easily select any section in the series by clicking on the Playlist icon in the upper left corner of the video frame.
