Troubleshooting

What do I do if an video streamed video I want to view doesn't play properly?

The main reasons a video doesn't play properly are:

  • Your computer settings may be incompatible with our system requirements.  Check that you have cookies enabled in your browser and empty your cache periodically. 

  • If you are off-campus, an organisational firewall may be preventing the video from playing.  Contact your organisation's IT staff for help.
