WEBCAST INFORMATION

If you are attending the conference via the live webcast, please read the following instructions:

To make sure that you can properly watch this webcast, please try to watch the Greater Good video on this page.

If this video does not play at all, you probably need to install Adobe Flash Player:
http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

If you cannot hear the audio, please first make sure your speaker volume is turned up. If it is, go into the master volume options on your computer and turn up or unmute any levels that might be low or muted. If none of this works, you may not have built in speakers or your sound card may be defective or missing; regrettably, we won’t be able to help if that is the case.

If you have no problems watching the recording, your computer should be fine to run the broadcast!

Logging Into the Webcast

To log in on the day of the broadcast, you will first need to log into the Greater Good Science Center's website; the webcast will be hosted behind a password-protected page.

In general, to ensure best performance, please try to access the webcast from a high-speed WIRED connection to the Internet on the day of the broadcast. While many people with fast wireless connections are able to watch the broadcasts with little or no trouble, it can cause lag and delay in the video stream, resulting in jerky movements and sound.
