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.

Nebraska Hosting Oklahoma & 9 Recruits!

Go Big Red!- for the Grateful Web
Even us Colorado Girls Love The Huskers! - for the Grateful Web

This is a big weekend for Nebraska football.  The Huskers are looking for win number 6 and another big conference win.  An impressive showing will surely help the Huskers in national exposure as well as getting a few commitments from visiting recruits. 

Grateful Web put together a cheat sheet to help identify the visiting recruits this weekend.  The cheat sheet is a WORD document that you can download and print out.  All information and content came from RIVALS.COM.  They get all credit for the content, we just stuffed it into this document so we could print it out and take it to the game.

Perhaps some of you that are going to the game could print out several copies and pass them out so that others can help personalize the experience for these talented kids!

Husker Visting Recruits - 10/28/2005 - Word Document

Here is an attempt at converting the document to HTML.  I can't guarantee how well it will line up, but I think it's close!  It displays like crap as a web page, but it should print out pretty well (three pages).

NOTE:  The Grateful Web will be taking pictures of this weekend's game.  Be sure to check back next week for pictures of not only the 2005 squad, but as much of the 1995 team who will be honored this weekend!

2004 Nebraska Cornhuskers- for the Grateful Web
Nebraska vs. Western Ill.- for the Grateful Web

For the first time in 36 years, Nebraska is not going bowling this coming bowl season. Gone are the 42 years without a losing season.   The demise really first started with the pummeling Nebraska took in 2001 in Boulder, when Nebraska, ranked #1, ended up losing 62 -36, their worse loss in school history.  After that, Nebraska was beat up in the Rose Bowl...  and the bleeding just begun.  In 2002, what I sarcastically refer to the season as the 'goal post tour 2002,' because fans of every team Nebraska faced on the road tore down their goal posts in celebration of beating Nebraska.  In three short years, a program that was feared everywhere dropped to everyday status. First came the end of the 33-year run in the polls in 2002. Then the nine-win season streak fell.  The only streak we have left in consecutive sell-outs at Memorial Stadium, but if Nebraska continues to be a mediocre team, one will wonder if that will go too..
