Webcasting: Technical Help

Webcasting is the term used to describe the real-time delivery of moving images, moving text and sound, over the internet. Webcasting software allows internet audiences to listen or watch types of media, which have, up until now, been considered too large and bulky for consumption over the internet.

If you haven't experienced webcasting online before, read these instructions carefully.
To experience live webcasts or to listen or watch archived webcasts, you'll need access to a computer with a sound card and a connection to the internet (ideally, at least 56K).

You will also need to have a piece of free software called the Real Player installed. To avoid disappointment, it would be best if you knew that your computer is able to play audio and video in the Real Player before you connect to live webcasts.

Downloading Software

The free Real Player can be downloaded at the Real Networks website.

1>For the free version, download the BASIC VERSION of the Real Player (Basic Player 8), which can be found at the lower left hand corner of the webpage.

The Real Networks website also contains more information about what kind of computer you will need to run this Real Player. Please note that the installer is approximately 9MB in size, and will take some time to download.

2>Once downloaded, quit your browser and install the real player (once clicked the installer will load all necessary files onto your computer).

3>Restart your machine and you will be ready to enjoy real video and real audio content. Not just on this site but any websites which offer this content!

4>Once you are ready to view the live Webcast you will have a choice:

4.1>Watch the webcast within the html browser (embedded real video file).

4.2>Download the real video file to watch using the stand along real player on your desktop. This can be done by clicking the link 'non-embedded' in any of the webcast windows
