Troubleshooting Guide
If the video does not immediately start playing

  • Windows Media Player is installing an additional codec. You may see the Windows Media Technology logo looping -- this looping occurs because the player sometimes downloads this codec in the background without prompting you.
  • If you are not connected to the Internet and you see the continual looping, you must connect so that Windows Media Player can download the codec.

If the video never plays

  • You may have chosen not to install a needed codec in the past. As a result, Windows Media Player will never prompt you again. You should reinstall Windows Media Player

If the presentation has additional plug-ins

  • You may need to download these plug-ins before continuing to view the presentation.

If the connection seems slow

  • You may not have a sufficient connection rate. For example, if you are connecting from a 28.8k modem, you may have trouble viewing the presentation if it was meant for DSL users. Contact the presentation provider to see if they have a version for your connection rate.
