How to Hack WebAssign's Watch It

If you use WebAssign, sometimes they give you the button to the "Watch It" which are very helpful. However, you might be able to find the watch it to more than just the problems they give you..

If the URL looks like:
http://www.cengage.com/physics/book_content/1439048622_serway/SerPSE8e_w_player/SerPSE8e_21_033.html

or

http://www.webassign.net/v4cgi/extra/bc_enhanced/index.tpl?asset=watch_it_player&asset_url=/bc_enhanced/SerPSE8_w_player/SerPSE8_25_033.html&UserPass=

Change the URL "SerPSE8_21_033.html"
The "21" is the "chapter" and then the "33" is the "problem number".
