Do you support Closed Captioning?
Yes we support both English and Spanish closed captioning. Place your cursor over the video player and you should be able to see the CC icon. You can choose to turn it on/off and choose the caption language there by clicking on the CC icon.
If you try to select the captioning language and only see "unknown", refresh your browser and you should then be able to see the languages offered.
Note on Displaying Captions on iOS devices (iPads, iPods & iPhones):
Captions will not display on iOS devices when the player is in full screen mode. Video always plays in full screen mode on an iPhone, so there's no way to overlay captions. Captions will display on iPads when the player is not in full screen mode.
My Android Device doesn't play the video very well.
We strongly recommend that you go to the Google Play store and download the FREE Chrome browser and launch the website in Chrome. It plays beautifully.
Why does my playback quality vary?
The bit rate for playback is set in the player automatically based on your internet speed. If your internet speed (which is generally based on the traffic through your ISP when you watch, not necessarily what your modem can handle) is slower, the bit rate is lower to prevent buffering. In other words, the bit rate is based on what your connection can handle at the time you’re viewing.
How can I tell if I've logged out?
If you do not share a computer or device with anyone else, you don't have to log out of your account when you're done viewing videos. The next time you come to the page, the player will automatically load without prompting you to log in. If you'd like to logout, click on the logout button below the player. The player should go away and the cast photo with the Subscribe & Log In buttons will display.
