When I reach the video page, I don't see a video player, only a white area in the middle of the screen. Why?: You need to update the background program that plays video for your web browser. Go to this page and follow the instructions. Additionally, we strongly encourage viewers use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer.
What if the video is buffering or doesn't appear to be working?: Try these suggestions successively. First, close as many other computer applications as possible and refresh your browser window. Reboot your computer. Switch to a different web browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Turn off your router (where the internet comes into your home) for 30 seconds, then power it up again. In most cases, those will solve issues. If there's a problem that appears to be affecting everyone, check the live chat and our Twitter feed or Facebook page for details.
What if I'm hearing an echo?: You likely have two browser windows open to the live video feed, so you're hearing the audio twice. Close one of the windows.
How do I make the video full-screen?: Click the square box next to the volume adjuster in the lower middle portion of the screen.
Is my computer capable of receiving pay-per-view?: If you have a high-speed Internet connection and you're typically able to view our videos online, you're set. Regularly-used computers five years old or newer with recent software shouldn't have any problems. For the best broadcast experience, we recommend using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome web browsers.
Is it just like watching TV?: For the most part, although you computer screen is likely a bit smaller and the picture isn't quite as a sharp as some television broadcasts. As long as you have a steady high-speed internet connection, you should be able to watch smooth video throughout each night's program.
Is the live production available on mobile devices?: A computer and full web browser may provide the best experience, but most smartphones and tablets, including iPhones and iPads, can be used as well.
