Windows Media Player
|You will need Windows Media Player 6.4 or above for the video to play. If your computer does not have this installed please download it for free from http://www.windowsmedia.com/download.|
|You will need Internet Explorer 5 or above to view the web pages for this event. If you need to install it, you can download it free from http://www.microsoft.com/ie/.|
You will obviously also need a sound card and speakers. Most PC's have this capability. If you are unsure, please ask your system administrator.
You will need a screen size of at least 800 x 600. If you have not, you can reset this by right-clicking on your desktop and selecting properties. This will open "Display Properties". Go to the "Settings" tab and move the slider in the bottom right along to the right to 800 x 600.
If you are on a corporate LAN, you will most likely be behind a firewall (a device which forbids certain traffic from entering the network). Usually this is not a problem as our software can send the audio the same way that web pages are delivered however some companies prefer to block this from happening. In short, you need to configure Windows Media Player to allow access over HTTP. If you are experiencing problems related to this, please contact your system administrator. Feel free to pass on our details to them so we can help troubleshoot the problems.
