Video Q & A

Why can't I get video to play on my computer at work?
Some network administrators may block streaming video in the workplace. Contact your companies IT department for assistance.

Why won't Windows Media Player install on my computer at work?
Some network administrators may limit the rights of users to install or upgrade programs on their computers. Contact your companies IT department for assistance.

When I run Windows Media Player 7 or later, and I try to play video files streamed from the Internet, I only hear the audio. Why does this happen, and how can I fix it?
When you receive streamed content, communication occurs between the Player and a Windows Media server regarding the connection speed of your computer. If the Player communicates an incorrect connection speed to the server, the server may try to "thin" the stream, which means that the stream quality decreases and the Player may lose video altogether. You can prevent this from happening accidentally by manually specifying the connection speed. Open your Windows Media Player, you can specify your connection speed on the Performance tab of the Options dialog box.
It is also possible that you may not have the video codec that is required to decode and display the video. For more information about obtaining the correct codec, see the Playback Issues section.

Why does the Player disconnect sometimes when it starts playing content?
The Player may be detecting your connection speed incorrectly. Open your Windows Media Player, you can manually specify your connection speed on the Performance tab of the Options dialog box.
For more information about manually specifying connection speeds in Windows Media Player 6.4, see article 253798, "Windows Media Player May Stop Responding or Generate an Error Message When Streaming Media," in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Why does the Player temporarily pause when I play content from the Internet?
In some cases, firewalls block Universal Datagram Protocol (UDP) traffic, which is the protocol required to play streaming content. In those cases, the Player is forced to use the HTTP/TCP protocol, which causes buffering and pauses when there is network congestion. To find out whether the Player is pausing (buffering) due to network congestion, you can compare the bandwidth the Player is currently using against the available bandwidth. Open your Windows Media Player, on the View menu, click Statistics, and then click the Advanced tab.

sounds pretty good to my ears...maybe clearer picture? still it is pretty cool...

eric's picture

i have better line of sight with the webcast than i had at my last show on 7/29/05 @ 12 Galaxies - San Francisco. video could be better, but this is way better than most

chris's picture

bandwidth is the only issue...i wish we could have better video, part is light and part is bandwidth , but we don't want to sacrifice sound quality...and the camera angle is the only possible one, becuase venue has only one camera...I'm haivng a blast here in NY...where are you all viewing from? Thanks...

eric's picture

viewing from houston, but from pittsburgh..

chris's picture

this is a CRAZY Thing One! I am viewing from Upstate NY (Saratoga SPrings), but went to school with 2 of the other Gweb folks at Nebraska - Go Big Red!!!

scott's picture

im viewing from so cal and the only problem is window is small resolution wise, make it bigger picture gets bad, that and maybe make all good for quicktime as well for us mac users... thanks for this!.....

Pat's picture

Better vid would be great. But would cost bandwidth. Perhaps zoom in a little tighter.

Scott's picture
