Playback Requirements and Help:


Windows Media Player 9 or later is recommended to view these webcasts.


All streams are broadcast on the following ports:

TC/PIP on port 1755, 554 - Recommended Port!
UDP on ports 1024-5000
HTTP on port
80


Your hardware/software firewall must be configured to accept streams on these ports.

If yo

Identify your Windows Media Player version (Help|About Windows Media Player).

Either upgrade your Windows Media Player to Version 9, or add Windows Media 9 Codec Series support to your current player. See table below:

Media Player 9 is N/A for this operating system but is supported in OS/X.

Upgrade to Media Player 7. You will not be able to view Windows Media 9 video streams.

Mac OS/X



Upgrade to Media Player 9 for OS/X.

There is currently a "bug" in Windows Media Player for OSX that forces Windows Media Player to default to the lowest bitrate stream (i.e., 56k) irrespective of your connection bandwidth. This issue will likely be fixed in the next Windows Media Update. We will be separating the streams after the webcast.

We do not recommend installation of the Flip4Mac plugin. Use Media Player instead.

If you are experiencing problems accessing the live webcast you can enter the links directly in Windows Media Player:

Open Windows Media Player
