What are viewers & players (plug-ins)?

Some health.gov webpages have links to files that may require extra software, or plug-ins, for you to play the files. This includes files on health.gov and microsites like MyHealthfinder and Healthy People. Plug-ins are optional software additions that let you do things like watch videos, hear sounds and music, and read certain types of documents.
