If you are having difficulty viewing these files, you may want to consider upgrading to the latest version of the Apple Quicktime player, or the Windows Media Player.
Other factors which can influence playback quality are the speed of your computer's processor, the amount of memory your computer has available and the amount of cache allocated in your browser preferences. You can empty your browser cache or clear your temporary internet files in the preferences or internet tools section found in your top menu bar.
Firefox users: When playing a video using Windows Media Player, if the video image is either invisible or disappears when you click a control, you need to adjust the plugin settings:
- When the player is active, right-click on it and select 'Options...'
- At the bottom of the window should be a 'Video Acceleration' option. Change it from full to half (or to zero, if needed) by moving the slider.
Users may also need to upgrade or replace their old Firefox Windows Media Player Dynamic Link Library Plug-in with the newer Firefox Windows Media Plugin. Instructions can be found here.
