Video Help

 

High-speed Internet works best
A dial-up connection will not be suitable for video playback. Common high-speed connections should provide at least 512 Kbps (kilobytes per second) for download speeds. Lower-speed connections may experience problems. Check your internet speed.

How do I view video?

  • Archived videos are available in Adobe Flash format.
  • Live streams are available in two formats (links open in new window):
Adobe Flash (Mac, PC & Linux)

QuickTime (Mac & PC)

Your computer must be able to play one of these formats and have a high-speed internet connection.

If Your Video Isn’t Working

  • We are using Adobe Flash Version 9 software for our live video. If you are having trouble viewing video, refresh your browser window (by clicking control - R at the same time, or command - R for Mac users).
  • If this doesn’t work, close and re-open your browser.
  • If you still cannot view the video, ensure you have the latest version of the free Flash player installed.
  • Note: You might also need to forward the video (up to one hour) to find the start of the ceremony.

Alternate Video Version - QuickTime
We have an alternate, lower-quality webcast stream available in QuickTime format. Download the QuickTime player for free.

Video periodically skips or stalls.
Sometimes a viewing computer may not have a consistent connection speed. This may cause skips and stalls.

Audio
Live streaming cannot provide the same experience as watching a DVD. When audio and video are streamed live over the internet, the signal is compressed which decreases the quality. This live stream allows you to view the event as it happens. Archived versions may be of a higher quality (please see the note below).
