Mormon.org Video Problems

#1

Post by Nic_Rossi-p40 »

I've tried viewing the new videos on the new Mormon.org website in Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox, all to no avail. Why aren't the videos available?

It takes quite a while for the video to start. I'm guessing that it is because they are in such a high definition. Did you give it plenty of time to start?

Please forgive me if this seems like an obvious question, but unlike videos on other websites, these don't start automatically. Did you perhaps not press the "Play" button found on the video screen?

I wonder why video in Church's web sites need a Windows or Mac OS.
I can view, with my linux box, almost all video in the net, why not from church's site?
Which is the benefits using Web Windows Media Player instead of sharing video file as you do with tech talk?

It seems to work, but takes quite a long time to load. In an investigator's shoes, I don't think I'd wait four or five minutes to watch a video that has a running time of 1:34 (God Speaks Today). I'm running on a Comcast cable modem connection and using a Mac.

I'm also running Comcast broadband, but using Vista. It only took about 10 seconds to buffer enough to begin playing. Don't have a Mac to test it with, so I'm not really sure why it took so long for you.
