Tips for Schools to ensure best access to the Live Stream

  • Schools are advised to make sure that they have updated their internet browser (we recommend Chrome or Firefox) and have updated their Flash Media Player.
  • Access to the Live stream will depend on your broadband connection. A wired connection is best (not wi-fi) and you can show the stream on whiteboards etc.  Remember to hit ‘full screen’ on the player.Your broadband will need to be at least 1MB.  There may be internal overload for schools if too many classrooms log on at the same time – depending on your broadband connection.  We advise that you test how many connections your school can manage and perhaps bring classes together if need be.
