Please read FAQ for further trouble shooting.
I have all the required hardware and software, however when I click to watch my video I am unable to see it or I get an error message stating that the stream is unavailable.
Answer: There are two things that could cause this. One: You, your employer, or your internet service provider are running a hardware or software firewall that is not allowing the stream to connect. We are using port 1935 to connect to the video stream and if this port is blocked you will still be able to choose the video but the stream will not be available. Two: You have chosen a link that is currently unavailable or is broken. It is recommended that you check to make sure that the ports are not block by a hardware or software firewall either at your computer or by your internet service provider. If they are open then you should check back later to see if the stream has been made available.
Can I save a stream that I watch on UCFWEBCAST?
Answer: No, unfortunately this feature is not available at this time.
I missed part of a live stream, will it be made available to watch later?
Answer: Many of our live streams are archived however the stream archive is an option made available to the host of the event and therefore is not always available. If a stream is archived it will be available to watch within 24 hours of the completion of the event. Note: All UCF commencement events are archived.
I cannot find an archive of a stream that I know I have seen on UCFWEBCAST, why when I search the archive I don’t see it?
Answer: When we stream events on UCFWEBCAST the archive feature is at the discretion of the event host. If an organization or department chooses not to have their event stream archived the stream will not appear on the UCFWEBCAST page. In the event that you are looking for a stream that does not appear in the archive we recommend that you contact the department or organization that hosted the event to see if they have a copy of the event available.
