Why can't I hear audio?

If you have internal speakers, make sure they aren't muted. 

If you have external speakers, make sure they are powered on and aren't muted. 

Make sure you did not lose Internet connectivity. 

Make sure you have the media player installed that you are attempting to use and the plugin is correctly installed within the browser. 

If you are using Windows Media Player and the player simply stops and/or gives you a generic "error" message, you may be missing an audio codec required to decode the presentation audio. Click here for the Microsoft Codec Installation Package. 

Alternatively, you can download the latest player here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/ 

If you are using Adobe Flash Player and are having connection issues please refer to the section labeled 

 

What is a pop-up blocker and how do I disable it?

Pop-up blockers are software programs that stop unsolicited "pop-up" browser windows from launching automatically. These windows often feature advertisements that can be an annoyance to users trying to browse the Internet, however some features of the Webcast may make use of pop-up windows to deliver key functionality. Depending on the software progam you have installed you may be able to add the Web site URL to a list of permissible Web sites where pop-up windows are allowed.

It is common to have one or more pop-up blockers that you may be unaware of. Most pop-up blockers reside either in the system tray (lower right hand corner of your screen by the clock) or as a toolbar in Internet Explorer (at the top of your browser, go to "View" and then "Toolbars"). These can be disabled in their options or preferences menus. (Common toolbars such as Google and Yahoo Companion have built in pop up blockers).

Also, if you are unaware of any other pop-up blockers that are running on your computer, you may want to see if you have personal firewall software running, such as Norton's Internet Security or ZoneAlarm. If you have either of these, they will also block pop-up windows.
