Yes, you need to log in to see the live streams.
If you are viewing this from the web, a flash plugin is required to view the live stream. You can go to this link and download it for free http://get2.adobe.com/flashplayer Once installed, restart your PC for best results and this should solve the video issue.
Yes, you will still be able to watch it. On the day, simply head to the website, fill out the form and you will be taken through to the live video. We are working on email confirmations when registering for the event – watch this space!
On the day, when you come to the website you will be automatically redirected to the live feed. You will have to fill in a short form to confirm your school’s details and then the video will appear. Please note, as with all live events, we’re sometimes running a minute or two early/late so please bear with us!
You may have too many machines watching the live stream in your school. The internet download speed may not be enough for everyone to watch at the same time. Either reduce the number of machines watching the live stream or view the event on demand. The event will be made available shortly.
If you can see the video but not the audio please do the following checks.
The Adobe Flash Player plug-in is required to view the broadcast. You also require an internet connection and a compatible web browser.
Adobe Flash Player
We strongly suggest that you update to the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. This can be downloaded for free from the Adobe website.
Internet firewall and connectivity
If you have a firewall and have not watched streaming content before, please ask your Network Administrator if the firewall will allow it. (See the test page after registration) Some firewalls may also prevent ActiveX controls from being displayed in web pages. Please ensure that your firewall allows the WindowsMedia ActiveX control.
Good quality audio and video results from a fast internet connection to your computer. Even if you have a fast venue internet circuit, if the connection is shared you may be receiving a slow connection speed.
No, the same registration email can be used to login on numerous devices/terminals. However, we would recommend you consult with your IT department to make sure your school or library has the internet capacity to support that many live streams feeding at once and where possible, bring classes together to watch a single stream.
The event will be made available to view online Friday morning after the event.
