What do I need to experience streaming video?

Why does the video sometimes stop or pause?
Our video uses "streaming" technology to start transmitting video almost as soon as it is requested, rather than waiting for the complete video file to download. If the video stream pauses, it is probably due to Internet traffic congestion, a slow modem connection, or insufficient computer hardware. If a pause persists, it is recommended that you restart the video.

What about firewalls?
Some organizations and Internet Service Providers filter or block video transmission. If you cannot get video transmission (even when your system meets the above computer and software requirements), you may want to contact your Internet Service Provider or Network Administrator to see whether its security firewall is intentionally or unintentionally blocking video transmission. For further information, please see service.real.com/firewall/ or www.microsoft.com/Windows/windowsmedia/ en/serve/, which provide useful information to both users and firewall administrators.

Why am I receiving Javascript errors?
Javascript errors in the video page are usually caused by ad blockers, which block files needed both for advertising and for basic display of the page. This is most easily diagnosed by turning your ad blocker off and reloading the page. If this still doesn't work, please email us at foxnewsonline@foxnews.com

If you still have a problem...
Please send a message to foxnewsonline@foxnews.com, noting as much as you can of the following: the Web site that you viewed the video from, the name of the video, the problem, and your system configuration (player, browser, and operating-system versions, modem speed, Internet access provider, computer processor type and speed, and quantity of RAM.)
