Dialup Users

Viewing videos downloaded via a dial up connection

If you are using a dial up internet connection, you may find that the first time you view a video that it does not work properly because it takes a little while to download the entire video but computers often start playing before they have the complete data. You may experience problems such as finding that the audio track is broken up and out of sequence with the video.

If this happens, try viewing the video a second time. Your browser should now have downloaded all the files it needs and you should be able to view the video without delays.
