At Bruce Slawter.Com, we always have a back-up plan should technology fail us. (If you believe that line, then, as W.C. Fields once said, “I have a box of old Beta tapes I’d like to sell you.”)
If you are unable to view any of the videos on this blog site, it’s probably due to one of two reasons:
- Buffering, due to the limits of your wimpy little computer (e.g., memory & cache); also your download band-width, full-moon, comet, who knows what else — and my large video files (no, I’m not compensating for something. . . I did do some file compression, in case you’re wondering.)
- Apple .m4v compatibility issues, if you are using a PC and Windows Media Player for viewing videos.
If it’s just simple buffering, you may have to wait 30 seconds or more for the streaming, before the video begins. You might also have to select “pause” and wait for the video to unwind.
In any event, if it becomes frustrating — or you encounter interruptions — feel free to view the videos on these “imbedded” formats. The quality isn’t as good, but at least you will be able to get a pretty good idea of the photography and enjoy the music.
Just click on the center of the screen, and the video should begin after several seconds. Then, as the movie begins, move your cursor to the top right of the video and select “HD” for better picture quality.
