Design of Machinery Errata

Problem with AVI files:  The  downloads for Design of Machinery contain a number of video files in .avi format.  The latest Windows Media Player in Windows 10 no longer will run any .avi files.  A free video player called VLC is available for download from https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html  This runs all types of movie formats including .avi.
