Shiny Search at: http://www.shinysearch.com/ is a great example of a simple to use fun site, where we can make our own customised web page for Google searching, but give it our own unique name and style.

This should make the movie full screen so that it can be viewed clearly.
You might have to also turn up your speakers to hear the audio narration.
