Audio / Video Support
Sometimes, an audio or video stream might get interupted and begin to buffer. When it buffers, it is trying to connect to the stream. If this is the case, you will see the phrase Buffering... on the bottom portion of the media player controls. For Adobe Flash streams, you may also see a rotating circle, also indicating that the stream is bufferring.
If the interuption is short enough, it should automatically reconnect to the stream. In some cases, it may take too long to reconnect, causing the media player to stop its attempts to restart the stream. In this case, you may need to restart the audio/video stream on your computer.
To restart a stream, please:
- Click the stop button
- Click the play/pause button to resume.*
If you are still unable to resume the stream, close the webcast window and reopen it to attempt to reconnect.Return to Main Page
