Common Troubleshooting FAQ
- Java starts, but I don't see slides or the video -- You are
probably using Netscape Navigator. We are actively working on
fixing the infrastructure to support Netscape. For now, change
to Internet Explorer or use
server. Please send email to email@example.com if you still
cannot see the lecture.
- The slides are too big -- right click and zoom out. If that makes
the slides hard to read, grab the border between the video and
the slide and drag it to make the slide window bigger.
firstname.lastname@example.org. The program is a work in progress.
- On machines in CS&ST building -- even if your computer has
a sound card, most CS machines do not have speakers. Use headphones.
- No error message, but no sound -- probably means IE didn't wait
long enough when grabbing the sound. Double click on the speaker icon
in your task bar (it runs SNDVOL32.EXE), click on mute all and then
unclick it. The message causes IE to try again.
- Microsoft Windows Media Player complains that you do not have
the right CODEC -- if you are not administrator on an NT computer,
you do not have permission to install a CODEC (COmpression / DECompression)
to decompress the audio. We chose VOXware to get the broadest compatibility.
- CSL removes your CODEC everytime you reboot -- send E-Mail to
email@example.com to tell me which CODECs are installed in "ControlPanel /
Multimedia / Devices / Audio Compression CODECs". In particular, look
for the VOXware CODEC, look at its priority, and make it higher priority
that whatever is stealing audio that it can't decode. We picked the
VOXware CODEC because of its quality and because it ships in all
installations of Windows Media Player
(and both core and full).
