I'm having trouble playing the video, how can I get it to play smoothly?
If your video playback isn’t smooth, here are some things you can try: Try letting the video buffer before you view it. Close other browser tabs and windows. This can make a huge difference! Make sure you have either the latest version of Flash running on your computer, or use a browser with native HTML5 support. Switch to another browser to see if that helps. What is video buffering, and how do I do it? Buffering is a way of preloading the videos you watch so that fluctuations in your Internet connection don't cause choppy playback. When you play a video, a light gray bar will advance in front of the playhead, showing you how much of your video has been buffered. Your playback should be smooth as long as you're viewing your video within the light gray buffer region. If you're experiencing choppy playback, pause the video, allow the video to buffer for a few moments, then try playing your video again!
