What if I get Video player error message?

The website is optimized in accordance with latest versions of iOS, Android and Windows Phone OS, 
as well as with latest versions of browsers - FireFox, Google Chrome, Opera etc.

If the video is 60+ minutes long it may require some time to start buffering. It should start working in 1-3 minutes after you click play in the video player.

If you’re getting a player error message, most of the time, the video should start working again in about 30 minutes.

This error can happen due to a number of factors, such as issues with your Internet Service Provider (ISP), number of connected users or devices, your hardware and software configuration, your internet connection, or problems with the video itself.

Here are some tips to troubleshoot this issue on your computer or mobile. After each step, try viewing your video again.

1. Close other tabs or windows
If you have multiple tabs or windows open in your browser, try closing them.

2. Reload the page
On many browsers, you can press the F5 key or Command+R keys on your keyboard to reload the current page.

3. Change your video’s format
Select another video format (flv/mpeg4), if such an option is available on video player.
Wait for the buffer bar to start loading before clicking play in the video player.
