NJARC Streaming Media
Streaming video and audio files

Viewing streaming video clips requires a broadband connection. If you don't have a fast enough Internet connection, remember that the entire video library is available on VHS and DVD with free borrowing privileges for all members. See Phil Vourtsis at any meeting to sign out videos.

We've had great success using Google Video to stream our programs. We also have clips in the Windows Media Video format at approximately 300kbps. All of these videos will play nicely on a cable modem and should stream on most DSL connections. Plus, remember that you can always download a high bandwidth clip and play it from your hard drive regardless of your actual connection speed (even dialup!)

Windows Media Video files play reliably in Internet Explorer 6, but not the newest version, Internet Explorer 7. Click Here for more information on the problem. If you're using Mozilla Firefox as your web browser, you may experience problems. There is information readily available on the web on how to get .wmv files to play correctly when using Firefox.

Please let me know if you experience any problems, have any preferences or other comments that will help us to make this area of the website as enjoyable and usable as possible. I'll appreciate any feedback on this. Thanks. Dave Sica
