Post Webinar issues
Hello:

I am trying to view the recorded webinars for NXT programming. I am able to view them just fine at work, however they do not work at home. I have downloaded the codex and installed it. I have not had any other issues with *.wmv files. Any ideas on what to try?

I saved them as a file and tried to view them at home. I also tried to view them directly from the website and I get nothing.

Thanks

What application are you using to view the .wmv file? I know it's probably Windows Media Player, but I just wanted to make sure. If it is Windows Media Player, what version are you running and is that the most up-to-date version?

I have version 11. I have watched some of the videos from the curriculum guide, they work just fine. For some reason these recorded webinar's are the only videos I play that do not have any sound. I was just wondering if this was common and if anyone had any suggestions.

Thanks in advance
Benny

Benny,

Did you install the necessary codec for it?
On the page it says:
Quote:
* To view the recorded webinars, you must download the Webinar Video Codec (2.3MB - EXE) before viewing.


You can pick it up here: [LINK].

Regards,
Xander

Yes, that was installed. I have tried viewing this in real player and windows media, neither work.

I'm curious, try installing VLC Media player (It's free). I use that as my media player and I'm able to play those recordings. Let me know if it still has issues after that.

Some one else just recommended that to me also. I will try it tonight. I fully suspect it is an issue with my computer, but any other file I try to play works correctly. I wonder if that codec is not getting installed correctly on my system for some reason. I will keep you posted....

Great. It could be possible one of your core video codecs is broken. I'm not an expert so it's just a guess. VLC, I believe, comes with its own set of codecs as well as runs the one you downloaded that's necessary for running the webinar recording.

Anyway, glad that it works now.
