Are you using Internet Explorer?
Our videos work in a variety of platforms and browsers, however they do not work in all environments. We urge you to please upgrade to the latest version of Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer before attempting to run a video on your computer.
Have you disabled pop-up blockers?
It is important to turn off all pop-up blockers. Internet Explorer has its own popup blocker. However, some third party toolbars also include pop-up blockers, such as Yahoo Toolbar, Google Toolbar, McAfee Security, Norton Security and a number of personal firewall applications. Please read how to turn off pop-up blockers.
Do you have the latest version of Windows Media Player?
Some videos require the free Windows Media Player, while others require the most recent version of Adobe Flash. Downloading these free browser plugins only takes a few moments, and solves many connectivity issues.
Is your computer sitting behind a firewall?
If you are trying to access the video from your office, many companies use firewalls to block certain types of content. Please contact your PC/network administrator to see if a firewall is preventing the video from playing on your computer.
