Webcast Instructions

Webcast Test

Please click the link below to test your current Windows Media Player. You should see a video clip with sound. If you are using a modem, the video may be slow, 'fuzzy', and may stop and start off and on. This can be considered normal. You may want to stop and try again in a few minutes until local Internet activity has slowed.

Perform the webcast test

If the video clip did not work, please review the webcast requirements. You probably need to download the free Windows Media Player for Windows or Flip4Mac for Macintosh. If you still encounter problems with the webcast test please email us at web@ohiorc.org. We will be happy to assist you, but please note that we will not be able to provide a response during a live webcast.

System Requirements

The webcasts are designed to be viewed on any modern Microsoft Windows or Macintosh based computer made after 1998 and having an Internet connection. Many older computers will work as well.
