How can I view video files on any website I access, please?

Try with another browser. Or else you can use spyme tools, to understand where the video file get saved on your machine, take it from there, (usually it will be a .tmp file). Rename it to .flv or so, and then play it with VLC. But first check your flash settings and try opening it on different browsers.

I cannot access my internet viewer

More details are required.
The Samsung 'SmartViewer' program starts up on a computer. You can access it whether you have a recorder or not.
The Samsung 4 channel DVR has a menu to set IP address & ports to use and a netjack to connect to internet. You can access the DVR from any computer connected to the same router as the DVR by inserting the same correct info into 'SmartViewer' as in the the DVR.
Once you open the required ports in your router, port forward the router to the DVR, any incoming requests from the internet to view should connect and with the correct password you can view your security cams.
With minor adjustments..that's it.
What didn't you do?
