Technical Support Information – Desktop Computers

In order to view the webcast, you must have a currently supported HTML5 compliant web browser with standards-based media playback support on supported versions of the Windows and Macintosh operating systems.

Video webcasts require that you have a broadband Internet connection with at least 600kbps of download connectivity. If you are having difficulty with playback of a video webcast, for example playback is buffering frequently, select the "Play audio and slides" link which requires less bandwidth than the video webcasts. If you have trouble with the audio webcast, you may not have sufficient bandwidth on your Internet connection to view the webcasts. Downloadable audio-only MP3 files are available for each session.

If you are still having trouble viewing the webcasts, please carefully review the detailed System Requirements and Troubleshooting Steps webpage.
