It is recommended that your connection can support at least 256kbps download speed.
You can test your connection speed at this page: http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

Too many connections from the same office (DSL/Cable: 2-3 users, T-1: 4-5 users, T3: up to 18 users) may consume all available bandwidth and degrade streaming video capability.

Please review the information below prior to the webcast.

Upon registration, you will receive an e-mail with a link to view the webcast.

If you have an IT administrator, it is important that you let them know
you will be attending this seminar. Please have them read the information below.


Tips for a Better Webcast Experience:

CLE webcasts use Adobe Flash Player technology. Most newer computers will already have the Flash Player installed. Check here to find out if you already have the player installed. - Download Adobe Flash Player

- Hi-Speed connection - Viewers with faster and more consistent connections will have a better viewing experience.
It is recommended that your connection can sustain at least a 300 kbps download speed.

***IMPORTANT*** Do you have a firewall or router? ***IMPORTANT***
It is possible that your firewall may block the stream or that your router may not pass the stream correctly.
If you cannot connect, try temporarily disabling the firewall to see if that is the problem or have your network administrator look into it. Your network administrator may have to check into the router setup as well if it is
determined to be the cause.

- Bandwidth from wireless connections will not be as stable or consistent as bandwidth through an ethernet cable. If you are viewing the webcast with a laptop, it is recommended that you plug into a data port with an ethernet cable.

Common Problems:

- Corporate and Personal Firewalls
Contact your company network administrator or review
your personal firewall settings to insure they do not interfere.


- Browser Security Settings
Browser security settings can interfere with loading the Flash player.

- Software running in the background
It is recommended that when viewing the Webcast, you close other
software programs– particularly any applications that access the internet.

- "I hear the meeting but the screen is black or blank, or the motion is choppy"
This typically indicates a lack of bandwidth.

- Lost the connection
Try refreshing the page in the web browser, or hitting the 'play' button again on your media player.
This may or may not work depending on the problem.
