My video stutters and freezes. What is wrong?
“Tired” browsers. We have found most playback issues can be resolved by rebooting the computer prior to logging in to view the broadcast or recorded event, particularly if you regularly let your system hibernate or “sleep.” Be sure your browser and Flash player are updated to the most current version. Browsers are constantly being updated. While we try, sometimes a browser will introduce video playback issues that require some time to re-program our site. If a page appears broken, please try viewing with a different web browser.
Viewing problems can also be caused by bandwidth constraints. This stream requires a consistent 800Kbps – 1.2Mbps download connection speed.
If this connection becomes burdened, the video quality will suffer in a way that may cause the image to stutter or become pixelated.
The most common factors that affect bandwidth include, but are not limited to:
- Shared connections (such as schools, public hotspots and homes with multiple computers sharing one internet connection).
- File downloads consuming network and computer processing time.
- System updates (computers periodically download system updates automatically).
- Anti-virus scans – do not disable.
Your video playback may also be affected by your browser and Flash configuration. To test your connection speed and browser configuration, visit a network speed test web site.
Can I watch an event from a public location such as a school, hotel or wi-fi hotspot?
While we can optimize the incoming video broadcast, we cannot control what else might be happening over shared internet on a public connection. The shared wireless network that you are attempting to view from may have too many users attached or other performance issues that can negatively impact the live viewing experience.
For this reason, wireless hotspots may not deliver a smooth viewing experience. If you are experienceing stuttering, and you have rebooted and updated your computer, we recommend moving to a wired internet connection. It is possible that you will be able to use a public hotspot to view with no problems, but this is purely a “use at your own risk” situation.
Where can I get the latest Flash player?
Adobe Flash player runs as a plug-in to all supported browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari) and is available free of charge on the Adobe website.
