Technical Requirements

Tips for Video Playback:

  • Always use a wired ethernet connection when possible as WiFi and Cellular playback are slower and less reliable.
  • A minimum of 5 Mbps download speed is required in order to sufficiently view the 720p live web streams without periodic buffering.(A 3G cellular network is too slow; you’ll need a 4G LTE connection to have an adequate download speed.)
  • Make sure to use the most current version of your preferred web browser, and browser plugins.
  • Minimize the number of open browser tabs, and the number of open applications on your device.

Watching Videos On-Demand:

Videos hosted on the UO Channel are available for viewing using HTML5 or Flash playback. We recommend using the most recent version of your preferred web browser, and the most recent version of Flash if your web browser is unable to playback the videos using HTML5.

Watching Live Web Streams:

Live web streams on the UO Channel are available for viewing through a Wowza Player with either HTML5 and Flash playback. Wowza Player supports Flash playback on older browsers that don’t support HTML5, however the latest version of Flash will need to be manually installed and enabled within the browser for it to work. We recommend using the most recent version of your preferred web browser when viewing live web streams.

For the most up-to-date information on the currently supported operating systems and browsers for Wowza Player, please visit the Technical Specification section on the Wowza Player website.
