You are here because the videos did not stream. Let's see if that can be corrected by following the advice on this page:
1. Internet Connection
You must have a high speed internet connection, such as cable, DSL (or better), in order for the videos to stream on your computer. A regular dial-up modem will not work.
2. Windows Media Player
The Intrepid Berkeley Explorer videos stream in the Windows Media format. You should have one of the later Windows Media Player versions, which you can download HERE , because older versions may not work. Other players may not work either.
3. Macs and Firefox Browsers
For Mac OS X try selecting and downloading Windows Media for QuickTime to play Windows Media files from HERE . Should work; same site for a Firefox Browser download.
Many programs or devices on your computer can block streaming videos. If you have any of the following, disable them and try playing the video again.
1. Ad Blockers
Ad blockers, especially pop-up ad blockers, are public enemy number one. Turn them off and the videos may stream.
There are many types of firewalls, and some of them block streaming video. Disable your firewalls and give the videos another try.
3. Anti-Virus Programs
Although less of a problem than ad blockers and firewalls, some overly protective anti-virus programs obstruct streaming video. If none of the earlier suggestions have worked for you, turn off your anti-virus programs and the videos might stream. This is perfectly safe, at least for my videos.
4. Videos Take Forever to Buffer
Here is a problem of my own creation, trying to stream Intrepid Berkeley Explorer videos at higher speeds and quality. Unfortunately, this may not work for everyone, despite a massive increase in speeds over recent years. Try seeing if the buffering process doesn't take too long.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience, but I meant well.
5. Streaming Videos Are Off Line
Sometimes the websites necessary for Intrepid Berkeley Explorer videos or any videos to stream can be temporarily off line. Instead of nothing happening, which usually indicates one of the problems above, you get an error message saying the website could not be found or opened.
If this happens to me, I will try to get the videos back on line as soon as possible, the same as anyone else with such a problem. But there is nothing you can do about it. Give up and try again later. No such unhappy events here for years now.
