I have all the above but still can’t watch the video, why not?
If you have a Firewall (security hardware/software) or any other related security software running on your PC it may affect your access to the site. You should consult the manufacturer’s manual or contact them directly regarding the package/hardware configuration.
I have broadband, but am having problems streaming the videos
If you have an internet connection of greater than 512k, but experience a lot of buffering when viewing the stream, the problem is most likely caused by network congestion over your ISP connection. You can test out the current download bandwidth available to you using one of the following links:
Bandwidthplace Speed Test
The results of these tests need to be around 600kbp/s to successfully view the stream. Please take into account fluctuations in local bandwidth and contact your Broadband provider directly if there are issues.
Video will play but audio won’t?
Make sure that your computer has a sound card to play the audio and your audio levels are turned up. To make sure that you have the necessary software that is currently supported, reinstall Flash.
Audio plays but video won’t?
This issue may occur if there is not enough bandwidth to play both audio and video. You may receive sound even though the video is not present because audio requires less available bandwidth.
My Flash video stream has stopped/gone to black
Very occasionally there may be flash streaming issues. If this occurs you may need to refresh your browser. You can do this by clicking the refresh button in your browser or pressing the F5 key on your keyboard.
What if I don’t know whether I have Flash installed?
To check to see if you have a suitable version of Adobe Flash Player, click Check My Flash Version which will launch a pop-up window either advising that ‘You have Flash installed OK’ or asking you to install the latest version of Flash.
