Technical Support Information
Presentations are available on supported versions of both Windows and Macintosh computers and require the latest Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer.
Check now to determine from Adobe if you have an up-to-date version of the Flash Player installed on your computer.
Audio and video presentations are streamed as on-demand webcasts. Video webcasts require that you have a broadband Internet connection with at least 300kbps of download connectivity. If you are having difficulty with playback of a video webcast, for example playback is buffering frequently, select the "Audio" link which requires less bandwidth than the video webcasts. While this option does synchronize the static slides in the presentations, it does not include any videos embedded in the presentation to limit the bandwidth demands of this option. If you have trouble with the audio webcast, you may not have sufficient bandwidth on your Internet connection to view the webcasts.
If you are still having trouble viewing the webcasts, please carefully review the detailed System Requirements and Troubleshooting Steps webpage for further support information. If after reviewing the troubleshooting steps you are still having difficulty, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mobile Device Supported Platforms
Apple iOS devices (Apple iPad and iPhone) and Android mobile devices.
Users with a supported mobile device listed above and an enabled Internet connection can stream presentations directly from the mobile optimized navigation page. Please note that some advanced interactivity is not available on some mobile devices.
Users may download audio-only mp3 files for offline listening by selecting the download mp3 link associated with each presentation.
Presentation Media Options
For each session, users may access sessions in two different versions of the media player:
- Slide video -- video of the speaker's slide presentation is the default stream displayed in the player. This option displays all speaker mouse movements and videos included in presentations.
- Slides + audio -- audio of the speaker's presentation is the default stream in the player. Static slide images in the slide presentations are synchronized to the audio stream. As noted, videos embedded in the presentation are not included in this option to limit the amount of bandwidth needed to view the presentation.
- mp3 -- download a mp3 file of the presentation to your local computer or mobile device.
Using the Media Player
The player offers several tools to browse slides in a presentation:
- Browse Slides -- use the browse slides tab on the left-hand side of the player to either preview the slides in the session or navigate to that point in the session by selecting the slide thumbnail image. These are the tools available to preview the slides in the presentation:
- There are two "expand" buttons to enlarge the size of the browse slides window:
- Expand the slide thumbnails over the presentation info region or
- Expand the slide thumbnails over the entire presentation content region of the player.
- Enlarge a slide thumbnail by using the slider bar in the browse slides region.
- Move your mouse over a slide to preview it in the slide region. The preview slide will be highlighted red. By moving your mouse off the slide thumbnail, you return to the current slide.
- The current slide is highlighted green in the browse slides region.
